Emmerdale bosses have confirmed that a major character is set to die in a shocking chain of events – in scenes that are the ‘most ambitious’ they have tackled since the outbreak of Covid-19.
The storyline will initially centre on the ongoing web of lies crafted by Paul Ashdale (Reece Dinsdale) but as his world implodes, characters like Nicola and Jimmy King (Nicola Wheeler and Nick Miles) will be caught in the epicentre.
Producer Laura Shaw told Metro.co.uk: ‘We’ve made no secret that Mandy/Vinny/Paul will feature heavily and Paul’s appalling behaviour gets worse and worse. He goes to extreme measures.
‘As he becomes better at hiding it, Mandy falls in love more and a proposal follows – a big old Dingle wedding is planned. But will it get them their happily ever after? It’s going in a really big direction, it’s our most ambitious work since Covid hit, it will be epic and rewarding.
‘Ultimately this story will end in tragedy for a character but for who?’
She added: ‘Jimmy and Nicola will cross into that in a shocking way. They will be watched by someone and Carl goes missing but who has taken him?
‘There are massive betrayals of trust and lives are changed forever. It starts small but it is the biggest test to their marriage.’
Series producer Jane Hudson continued: ‘Emmerdale is opening up while everything else is closing down – we’re here to entertain our fans and viewers, we haven’t locked down our imaginations over the next 12 months.
‘We have births, wedding, funerals, relationships starting and ending. It’s a massive year – we have loads coming up.’
