Scouting For Girls delighted to finally be on Emmerdale

Filming gets underway for Emmerdale's festival

The 40th anniversary of Emmerdale is fast approaching - and we've been behind the scenes to watch exactly how they film the festival planned by Home Farm.

Scouting For Girls revealed to Calendar they have been longing for a bit-part - or even a lead role - in the soap for years.

And the festival they perform in is not without controversy. Katie Sugden will take centre stage with a fairytale wedding to Home Farm boss Declan next week. But Declan's half-sister Megan discovers that he has been plotting to make sure she doesn't get a penny of the festival profits.
