Emmerdale’s Karen Blick reveals how she bagged £2k Groupon wedding for 100 guests with three course meal and a disco – The Sun

EMMERDALE may have come to a halt due to coronavirus but before they go, viewers will get a moment of joy tomorrow night.

Lydia Hart will marry Sam — and join the soap’s legendary Dingle family in a ceremony that includes drinking beer from a welly in true Yorkshire style.

And Karen Blick, who plays Lydia, says her own wedding to hubby Simon in 2011 was a similarly frugal affair.

The actress, who has been on the ITV show since 2016, managed to get a bargain deal through discount site Groupon and paid less than two grand for her big day, including a three-course dinner for 100 guests and a knees-up in the evening.

In an exclusive chat, she said: “We had a Dingle element to ours.

“We had been together for years and so we didn’t want to spend much.”

Tomorrow night, in true soap style, fans can expect a few last-minute hitches before the ceremony.

And in true Dingle family tradition, the bride is later asked to drink from the boot at the pub reception afterwards.

Karen said: “It was fun. We practised first and then we did the take for real. It is filled with non-alcoholic beer.

“The Dingles are such an iconic family in Emmerdale and even if you don’t watch the show, everyone knows who the Dingles are. They have gone through everything.”

Including a welly-load of ale . . .
