Emmerdale 1918
 
Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, Emmerdale 1918 uncovers the incredible untold stories of real Yorkshire men and women from the unique perspective of the cast of one of Britain’s favourite soaps.
 
A host of Emmerdale’s most famous faces – old and new – are about to leave the set behind and step back into the past to celebrate the lives of unsung local heroes who drove the war effort.
 
From Woolpack chef to the real wartime cook, village vicar to the battlefield priest, telly farmer to the real country land girl and Emmerdale vet to the real frontline vet. Inspired by amazing stories of gallantry, sacrifice and heartbreak from villages in rural Yorkshire, including the actual village that Emmerdale was based on, they’ll honour these hidden heroes when the cast come together to host their very own Emmerdale Armistice celebration.
 
Episode 6
 
Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, Emmerdale’s Mark Charnock, Charlotte Bellamy, Zoe Henry, Natalie J Robb and Bhasker Patel all pull together for the grand finale, throwing open the doors of the famed Yorkshire set to host a unique Great War centenary street party. 
 
Over the past 5 weeks, Emmerdale 1918 has uncovered stories of real Yorkshire men and women from the unique perspective of the cast of one of Britain’s favourite soaps. From Woolpack chef to the real wartime cook, telly farmer to the real country land girl and Emmerdale vet to the real frontline vet. Inspired by these amazing stories of gallantry, sacrifice and heartbreak from villages in rural Yorkshire, including the actual village that Emmerdale was based on, tonight the soap’s popular faces are taking over the set to host their very own Armistice celebration. 
 
Charlotte Bellamy (Laurel Thomas) will be master of ceremonies, Mark Charnock (Marlon Dingle) will be her new head of catering, in charge of dressing the set is Emmerdale farmer Natalie J Robb (Moira Dingle), Bhasker Patel (Rishi Sharma) is greeting the relatives of these impressive local men and women, and overseeing the guest of honour for the parade is telly vet Zoe Henry (Rhona Goskirk). 
 
But there’s one final surprise for everyone – John Middleton, who played village vicar Ashley Thomas for 20 years, is returning to the village for the first time since his character’s death, and he has been tasked with a great responsibility. Inspired by the epic story of First World War vicar, Reverend Richard Whincup, who ministered the parish just next to Esholt, it’s fallen to him to deliver a poignant armistice speech. In a day full of amazement, will our cast be able to pull their huge celebration together, and will John find the right words to do justice to these incredible Yorkshire men and women? Emmerdale’s Armistice day is here.
