Emmerdale has been forced to shut down production amid the Coronavirus pandemic — as has fellow soap Coronation Street — and, in an effort to ensure both serial dramas remain on air for as long as possible, they have reduced weekly transmissions from their usual six to three.
A spokesperson for ITV explained: ‘ITV has sadly taken the decision to suspend production of the soaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale with effect from Monday 23 March.
‘We’ve been doing our best to carry on filming, whilst adhering to the Government’s latest health guidelines, to ensure we’ve episodes of both soaps airing on ITV until at least the early summer.
‘However, the health and well-being of the production teams, actors, crew and their families is of paramount importance to us and we now feel that the time has come to stop filming. We’d like to thank our viewers for their support and hope they continue to enjoy both soaps in the coming months.’
Emmerdale continues Friday 17 Aprilat 7pm on ITV.
