The Vivienne joins Emmerdale for Pride celebration

Emmerdale villagers will be celebrating Pride next month and who better to join the cast for the day than Drag Race UK’s first winner, The Vivienne.

Playing her fabulous self, The Vivienne will make an appearance at Emmerdale’s first Pride day, which will see the village church and LGBTQ+ communities join forces for a day of celebration. 

“I am so happy that I will be part of Emmerdale's first ever Pride,” commented The Vivienne.

“My role is to officially open the event on the stage! It's great for Emmerdale to be doing this and I’m delighted to be part of it. We’re making that little bit of history for all the gays and the LGBTQ+ community and it’s just an absolute honour,” she added. 

Emmerdale producer, Kate Brooks said: 

‘'We're absolutely thrilled to welcome The Vivienne to Emmerdale to help our villagers celebrate this year's Pride event in style. The Vivienne will add a dash of her own inimitable wit and fabulousness to the show and will certainly raise a few eyebrows in the process.”

Viewers will be able to see The Vivienne’s appearance on screen at the end of June.
