Emmerdale bosses confirm multiple deaths in storm carnage

Emmerdale executive producer Jane Hudson and producers Kate Brooks and Laura Shaw have revealed that in the upcoming storm that rips through the village, more than one person will not survive.

Jane says this will include some fan favourites. ‘Some of the soap’s much-loved characters will sadly lose their lives,’ she says.

‘If you are going to do a death in the soap, it can’t be the postman who has had three lines because it doesn’t matter. A death has got to have an impact not just on the characters but also on the viewers watching.’

Laura says that they decided to go all-out and top any stunts they’ve attempted previously for this special celebratory week. ‘We do a big super stunt week every October but with 2022 being our 50th birthday, we wanted to top the big week,’ she says.

‘I think the richness of the storylines across this month will be talked about for a long time,’ Jane agrees.

‘We have so many stories across one month and alongside that, we have three epic stunts. We don’t die down after the stunts either because we end on a huge cliff-hanger.

‘Soaps are constantly being asked to prove why they are still relevant and why there is still a demand for them. This month delivers it. No drama can deliver what we are about to deliver in terms of visuals, storytelling, and performance.’

And, of course, tragedy. ‘There is going to be a lot of heartache,’ Laura says.

But who for? Those at risk include Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) who goes into labour in the terrible weather, while fears for Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) grow when she crosses Kim Tate (Claire King).

As the dust settles on a village wrecked by the storm, who will be left mourning the loss of loved ones?
