One of Emmerdale's stars is about to swap his fictional role for real-life thrills as a racing driver.
Kelvin Fletcher has played Andy Sugden for 20 years, but has been racing competitively since 2012. He is now going to take part in the British Touring Car Championship.
It's a boyhood dream to race in the British Touring Cars. It's something I've watched as a spectator, as a fan, a big motor sports fan growing up so to get the opportunity now a little bit later in my adult life, I think it's absolutely fantastic.
Emmerdale has beaten Coronation Street and EastEnders to be named Best Soap at the Royal Television Society Awards.Read the full story ›

From this spring, the live, working TV set located within the Harewood Estate in Leeds, will open its gates as cast and crew down scripts for the weekend and allow guests to tread the tarmac and indulge in a fully guided tour of the popular, fictional village.
