‘Tis the season for Emmerdale Christmas spoilers to drop, and producer Laura Shaw has been obliging us by filling us in on what we can expect in the way of drama from the Dales over Christmas and the new year.
Some of the information she gave us was pretty explosive – and it spells bad news for many of the villagers.
‘There’s going to be tragedy in the village in January that’s going to affect two of our most-loved families,’ she told us.
This automatically brings the Dingles to mind as they’re never far away from the drama and (let’s face it) there’s a Dingle in almost every family in the village.
Laura wasn’t giving any details just yet, but Emmerdale has previously given us massive storms, plane crashes, helicopter crashes, floods and numerous car crashes so brace yourself for anything.
What would say is that the tragedy has a massive impact on both families.
‘It’s ultimately going to tear friendships apart and change the dynamics of one of those families forever,’ she warned.
Elsewhere, we know that Lydia (Karen Blick) will continue to struggle in the aftermath of her horrific rape ordeal, for example, but there’s a glimpse of hope for her’s relationship with husband Sam (James Hooton) which has been severely damaged over his actions in going after rapist Craig (Ben Addis) against her wishes.
Kim Tate (Claire King)’s part in Craig’s death will also come out. ‘Lydia and Sam will find out what happened that night that we saw in the big Dingles week with Kim,’ Laura told us.
‘How is Lydia going to cope with that news? How will Sam cope with that news? It’s going to really test Lydia and Kim’s friendship which I know we all absolutely love.
‘For Sam and Lydia – are they ever going to get through this? Hopefully the new year’s going to bring some new hope for them.’

Laura also predicted an interesting festive period for Mack (Lawrence Robb), Chloe (Jessie Elland) and Charity (Emma Atkins) as Chloe’s dad – who will be a new character to the village – gets involved.
‘When she reaches out to him what we will see is him helping Chloe in his own unique way,’ Laura said. ‘Is Mackenzie going to be able to talk his way out of this one? I’m not sure, we’ll have to wait and see but I think it’s pretty sure to say the repercussions of that are going to be long-lasting into the new year and beyond.’
With big new storylines also confirmed for Moira and Chas Dingle (Natalie J Robb and Lucy Pargeter), it’s going to be a very busy 2024 in Emmerdale.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
