Emmerdale's back

The cast of Emmerdale are slowly starting to return to work after being forced to stop filming due to the coronavirus lockdown.

While Liam isn't back in the ITV studios just yet, he will be returning soon.

Speaking to Lorraine, he seemed confident about going back to work and praised show bosses for ensuring it was safe to do so.

He said: "There are loads of measures. They are doing so much to make it a safe environment for everybody.

"We've got to do inductions and the building is going to change – the whole process is going to change.

"From what I know from the people that have been back there already, it sounds like it's as safe as it possibly could be."

Good Morning Britain is on ITV, weekdays at 6am.
