It was also a Doctors reunion for Corrinne and Stirling Gallagher, who plays solicitor Paula.

The pair both starred in the daytime soap with Corrinne portraying Dr Helen Thompson from 2000 to 2005, and Stirling playing Dr Georgina Woodson from 2003 to 2009.

Some fans looking at the picture pointed out the huge tattoo Corrinne has on her arm, asking if it's real or for the character.

Pictures on Corrinne's Twitter account seemingly confirm the tattoo is totally real!

Corrinne's Emmerdale alter ego, Ella Hart, was  in the Dales between 2010 and 2011.

She was the ex-wife of Declan Macey and her biggest storyline was her affair with daughter Mia's boyfriend, Adam Barton.

She left, moving to Singapore, after the affair was exposed and she realised her daughter would never forgive her.

Mia died in a car accident in 2011 and Ella returned for the funeral, which was held off-screen.

It was very clear she wasn't coping with her daughter's death and she left again, with Declan's sister Megan Macey later revealing Ella was engaged to someone else.
