Emmerdale viewers are certainly in for a treat, as producers promise “terrifying” stunts that have never been seen on the show before.
Discussing what’s in store in a recent round table event, producer Laura Shaw said fans of the long-running ITV soap have a lot to look forward to in the next few days as the programme introduces another special week.
Laura also added that viewers will feel they are “right in the middle of the action” with the new filming techniques imposed.
Speaking candidly she said: “As well as the week of drama, the week will feature action too, with big stunts that have been really exciting to plan and film.
“We’ve not done anything like it before, not in the 20 years I’ve been at Emmerdale and we’ve had a lot of conversations and scratching of heads on how we can achieve it.”
She added: “We had to build a very special prop, which you will see in the episodes.
“We’ve also used some new very different filming techniques which will make you feel like you’re right in the middle of the action and I can tell you it’s absolutely terrifying.
“Again, I don’t think we’ve ever done it this way in Emmerdale before but it was really great to watch our hugely talented team do new and exciting things and just make the show look absolutely so incredible.”
However, the producer was unsure whether she could divulge further, just in case she gave away a huge spoiler.
Viewers will have to wait and see which characters will definitely be involved in the jaw-dropping stunts on week 19.
Laura did reveal though that on Friday’s episode before the big week, Noah Dingle’s obsession with Chloe Harris will be explored.
Gabby Thomas’ fear regarding Jamie Tate possibly returning to take their son Thomas will be shown, as well as Cain Dingle and Al Chapman’s ongoing rivalry resurfacing.
Producer Laura also said: “I think it’s exciting when we do these weeks and Emmerdale is becoming really well known for them now.
“I always get asked the question ‘when are you doing it again?'”
