Emmerdale viewers were left questioning why Lydia’s make-up looks different in last night’s lockdown episode (Monday, June 8).

In the visit to the Dales, things had changed quite a bit from last week as residents began to stay at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, as the episode began, viewers immediately noticed that Lydia looked a bit different. They pointed out her make-up looked a bit more obvious than it usually does.

However, it can easily be explained. Due to the pandemic, workplaces including TV productions have new social distancing measures along with health and safety guidelines.

This means that actors will have to do their own make up for the scenes. As these episodes were only recorded a couple of weeks ago, the new measures would have been in place already.

On Wednesday (June, 10) we see Aaron and Cain together in lockdown, but it won’t be smooth sailing.

Whilst Cain is adamant he won’t be opening up about his feelings, a letter comes through for Aaron.

Cain sees the letter, which has a prison stamp on it. Not wanting his nephew to fall back into despair over his ex-husband Robert, who is serving life in prison, he hides the letter in a magazine.

As the days start to pass, the pair get drunk, but Cain lets slip about the letter leaving Aaron furious.

Cain can’t remember where he put the letter and Aaron rails at him, giving him some home truths about Moira.

Later, Cain makes an attempt to apologise to the scrapyard owner but he struggles to open up.

How will Aaron cope with the letter?
