Emmerdale: 35 Today

THERE’S some explosive action when the 35th anniversary episode of Emmerdale is screened tonight.
Executive producer Keith Richardson was in nostalgic mood at a recent press preview of the hour-long special.
The conversation, naturally, turned to Emmerdale explosions – something of a speciality since the 1993 plane crash.
In particular, he recalled a July 2002 royal visit.
“I think our most spectacular one was when we blew up the Post Office in front of the Queen.
“Everybody was standing around the Queen – they all knew it was going to happen.
“And suddenly there was this huge explosion.”

There were screams and gasps from cast members.
But the royal visitor didn’t flinch.
“The Queen just stood there looking at it and said, ‘Oh my goodness.’
“That was fun.”
