We'll soon see football legend Chris Kamara make a cameo appearance in a couple of forthcoming episodes.
Chris plays a manager for a local football team who are playing against Emmerdale. A big village football match sees the villagers’ competitiveness put to the test, especially when Doug played by Duncan Preston and Jimmy played by Nick Miles hear who the opposition manager is...
Chris Kamara said: “I watch Emmerdale with my wife and my son, in fact my son is a massive Emmerdale fan so if I was coming down, they had to come too. It was a great day and I loved it! I essentially got to play myself and not a character, but hopefully that'll be the next thing along the line.”
Emmerdale producer, Kate Brooks, said: "We're absolutely delighted to have Chris join us for a special cameo in Emmerdale. With Chris' football expertise, he certainly manages to ruffle a few feathers with our newly formed Woolpack football team".
