Emmerdale teases ‘unexpected marriage’ and a new baby in coming months

The new year may have only just begun, but we already know that 2022 is going to be a very dramatic one in the Emmerdale village.

Following the current drama with evil murderer Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu), diehard soap fans are keen to find out what’s in store in the coming months on the ITV soap.

Now, bosses have teased details of the juicy storylines fans can expect, including several “births, deaths and marriages.”

Speaking to OK! and other press outlets, Emmerdale bosses Laura Shaw and Jane Hudson revealed there will be plenty of gripping plots to keep viewers entertained as they continue to tune in from their homes. These include three different weddings and a brand new baby.

Teasing specific details, Executive Producer Laura explained: “Well, it wouldn't be a normal soap year without a few births, deaths and marriages.”

Continuing to explain who would be tying the knot in 2022, Laura confirmed Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) and Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley)’s big day will take place on Valentine’s Day.

She revealed: “We've already seen Billy and Dawn get engaged on screen. I don’t think I’m giving too much away if I tell you that their wedding definitely will happen this year.”

“And it will happen on the most romantic day of the year on Valentine's Day, so not too long to wait for their wedding.”

But, as with every good soap wedding, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to be particularly smooth-sailing.

She added: “But will it all go to plan? Is it going to be happy ever after for these two or will disaster strike? I suspect it's probably the latter…”


The soap bosses also went on to reveal that there will be two further weddings that viewers won't see coming.

Jane teased: “There may be a wedding in the summer. Which we'll have to wait and see. You might not guess who that is right now.”

And Laura added: “We've also got another wedding coming up – a third one – and that's a bit more of an unexpected twist.”

“I think that's going to shock quite a few of our villagers and ruffle a few feathers. That is for later in the year.”

As well as several memorable big days, one character will hear the pitter patter of tiny feet when they find out that they’re expecting.

Jane explained: “There will be a baby arriving before the end of this year, but I think we've got enough female characters in the show to not be giving anything away.”

However, when pressed further on which familiar face would fall pregnant, Jane remained tight-lipped, simply adding: “That's all I'm saying. There will be a new arrival before the year is out…”
