Summer in the Village: Behind the scenes

Get ready for the hottest summer in the Village (and we're not talking about the weather). We take you behind the scenes of our exclusive glamorous photo shoot to get you excited about the epic months ahead.

Fantasy, mystery, dream-like. It's Emmerdale as you've never seen it before. Borrowing inspiration from The Great Gatsby and A Midsummer Night's Dream, Emmerdale's summer photo shoot is sure to get you excited. What's in store for our fair ladies and gents? Which man will be heartbroken? Which woman will embark on a new journey? Who's hiding dark secrets? Check out the behind the scenes video above and our pics below...and make sure you tune in all summer.
