ITV Head Of Soaps Confirms Murder
Speaking to Sky News, Whiston let it slip that there will be a brutal murder.

Plus, who could be the killer?
Emmerdale Spoilers: Grisly Killing Sends Shockwaves
Due to the hint that a beloved character will be killed off, it could send shockwaves. Of course, there are many possibilities, but we don’t know for sure any solid details. As the scene gets closer, we will most likely hear some clues about what to expect, who could resort to murder, and who might be the victim.
Social Distancing Filming Challenges
Whiston also spoke about the challenges relating to the social distancing measures that have to be followed during production. Not only are murder storylines difficult, but so are romantic scenes. He explained,
“In terms of all of the normal stuff that goes on in soaps, people kissing each other or murdering each other, we’ll have to socially distance murders I think. And we did actually have one coming up in Emmerdale quite soon.”
Previously, Emmerdale boss Jane Hudson spoke to several media outlets during a virtual press conference. She discussed how some storylines had to be postponed or changed due to the new safety protocols. However, she also made it clear that part of their job is to come up with creative solutions to those issues. Per the Mirror,
“The crew will be using clever camera angles to make it seem as though characters are closer than two meters. Intimate scenes will obviously also not include kissing or hugging but will be focused on ‘gazes of intent’ and arriving back in scenes as shirts are tucked in… It’s going to be a challenge how we make it work but we will do [it] because that’s our job. Our job is to come up with ways of telling stories.”
