Actors from Emmerdale are “going sledding” while the ITV soap’s set is closed due to a lot of snowfall.
Emmerdale producers were forced to postpone filming due to the set’s continued snow damage. The Yorkshire Dales, where the ITV soap opera is filmed, are in the vicinity of Leeds, but Storm Larissa has been dumping a lot of snow on the region for days.
The snowfall has affected the Emmerdale set and caused widespread disruption across many areas of the country.
Jimmy King’s on-screen persona, Nick Miles, shared with his Twitter followers on Friday that filming had been stopped.
He revealed: “Emmerdale’s filming was postponed today due to the snow. Watch out, Leeds. All of us are going sledding.”
Nicola Clayton, one of his followers, made the following remark in response to the announcement: “Stay safe on those sledges Nick, or we’ll be next seeing you with a cast.”
According to Lindsay Brockwell “A day off work, wow. Xx Have fun.”
The cast and crew continued filming until Friday despite the iconic set of the beloved soap opera being covered in snow on Thursday.
Rosie Bentham, who plays Gabby Thomas, and Lewis Cope, who plays newcomer Nicky, posted breathtaking pictures of the snow-covered village on Instagram.
Rosie also showed pictures of her homemade snowman and cars that were buried under several inches of snow.
On his Instagram story, Lewis also posted some images of the snowy surroundings in Emmerdale village.
Actors from Emmerdale are currently shooting episodes that will air in May.
When the actors will return to the outdoor set to resume filming has not yet been confirmed by the soap.
“We are not filming today.. but as it is thawing, it’s not expected that it will be cancelled after today,” an Emmerdale spokesperson told Express.co.uk.
Three amber warnings have been issued by the Met Office for “significant disruption” in the North of England, the Midlands, North Wales, and Northern Ireland.
The ITV soap opera’s tonight’s (March 10) episode will focus on men’s mental health while filming is put on hold.
Following Paddy Kirk’s (played by Dominic Brunt) unsuccessful suicide attempt, many of the male characters participate in a lock-in at The Woolpack where they discuss their feelings.
The poignant scenes will feature Emmerdale veterans Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) and Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).
On the ITV soap, Paddy’s mental health hit rock bottom earlier this month, with the village vet considering suicide.
Marlon was by his side when he returned home, and his loved ones are determined to get Paddy the assistance he so desperately needs.
Will Paddy soon begin to feel more optimistic about his life?
