Emmerdale will mark its 50th Anniversary with a deadly storm


Emmerdale bosses have revealed that the village will be rocked by a deadly storm to celebrate the soap’s 50th Anniversary in October.

In the show’s most daring stunt yet, viewers will be gripped as they see the disaster leave a ‘trail of destruction,’ with many of the soap’s most beloved characters left in ‘mortal peril.’

Producer Kate Brooks also confirmed that the 50th Anniversary will see the return of several familiar faces to the Dales, including Danny Miller (Aaron Dingle), Elizabeth Estensen (Diane Sugden) and Amy Walsh (Tracy Metcalfe).

Speaking to The Mirror about the explosive scenes, Kate said: ‘ ‘A massive storm will rip through the village and leave a trail of destruction in its wake. Some of our best-loved villagers will be in peril. The village will literally never be the same again.

‘We also have the return of some very familiar faces to the Dales. Diane, Aaron and Tracy will all be making a re-appearance, albeit on a temporary basis, but at the heart of some really big stories.’

Danny bid farewell to Emmerdale last year after 13 years as Aaron Dingle, opting to leave the village after his boyfriend Ben Tucker’s (Simon Lennon) death.

Meanwhile Amy left the village in 2021 when she went on maternity leave, with her character Tracy accepting a new job in Nottingham. 

This isn’t the first time Emmerdale has been hit by disaster, after a tornado in 2003 killed the beloved Tricia Dingle, and a plane crash in 1993 killed off four major characters.

Despite comparisons to the Noughties tragedy – nicknamed Emmer-gale – Kate insisted that this disaster will be different.

She added: ‘It’s in daytime, so you can actually see what’s happening. It affects the entire village – and some people are seriously injured, so I think it will feel really different.’

Kate went onto hint that bosses haven’t ruled out a murder during their Anniversary month, which will kick off with Kim Tate overhearing her fiancée Will Taylor declaring his love for another woman on their wedding day.  

Recent weeks have also seen Leyla Harding struggling with her cocaine addiction, with her husband Liam discovering her unconscious following an overdose, while Marlon Dingle has struggled with a lengthy recovery after suffering a stroke.

ITV have also announced that they will air a special documentary to mark Emmerdale’s 50th birthday, featuring classic clips looking back at some of the soap’s most heart-warming, emotional and dramatic moments. 

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV, with an hour-long episode on Thursdays.
