Christmas in soapland is rarely a lowkey affair and Emmerdale fans will be glad to know that they can expect plenty of drama from this year's festive special.
The time-hopping episode opens with a flash forward. As the residents enjoy Christmas day there's a thin dusting of what looks like snow settling on the village, but all is not as it seems. The episode soon cuts back to the hours preceding the flurry to show viewers what really happened.
The latest spoiler for the soap revealed that all the action in weeks leading up to Christmas has been setting the scene for a confrontation between sisters Meena Jutla (played by Paige Sandhu) and Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker).
While the rest of the villagers are busy celebrating Christmas, Meena hatches a plan to get Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) in trouble. She reports the mum to social services, but Manpreet catches her in the act just in time and kills the call.
Meena is furious, but quickly decides to play the concerned neighbour act and it looks like Manpreet is falling for it. However, when Meena leaves, Manpreet reassesses the situation and her suspicions grow.
Later, Meena plants heroin at Woodbine in order to cast doubt on Dawn's capabilities as a mother. Once again though, Manpreet interrupts her plot.
