Emmerdale is officially 45! In its four and a half decades on air, the show has taken us on emotional rollercoasters, will-they-won't-they trysts, and dropped planes, trains, and automobiles on characters as they navigate life in the most dramatic village in Yorkshire.
To celebrate, we had a special visit from two fan favourites of Emmerdale's past. Joe Sugden - a member of the seminal family that made farming the 'in thing', played by Frazer Hines - and Kathy Tate/Bates/Glover/Merrick/Brockman, who's scrapes with near-death almost match the number of names she has taken on the show, played by Malandra Burrows. Malandra and Frazer were excited to be back at a place that meant so much to both of them, and we were ecstatic to infuse the modern Emmerdale with a call back to Emmerdale's roots.
We were also pleased to be able to invite two Facebook competition winners to meet and greet Frazer and Malandra.
Malandra Burrows is set to return to the Emmerdale Studio Experience for a series of meet & greet tours on Saturday 24th February 2018
