THE VIVIENNE JOINS EMMERDALE FOR PRIDE CELEBRATION 

Emmerdale villagers will be celebrating Pride next month and who better to join the cast for the day than Drag Race UKÕs first winner, The Vivienne.

Playing her fabulous self, The Vivienne will make an appearance at EmmerdaleÕs first Pride day, which will see the village church and LGBTQ+ communities join forces for a day of celebration. 

ÒI am so happy that I will be part of Emmerdale's first ever Pride,Ó commented The Vivienne.

ÒMy role is to officially open the event on the stage! It's great for Emmerdale to be doing this and IÕm delighted to be part of it. WeÕre making that little bit of history for all the gays and the LGBTQ+ community and itÕs just an absolute honour,Ó she added. 

Emmerdale producer, Kate Brooks said: 

Ô'We're absolutely thrilled to welcome The Vivienne to Emmerdale to help our villagers celebrate this year's Pride event in style. The Vivienne will add a dash of her own inimitable wit and fabulousness to the show and will certainly raise a few eyebrows in the process.Ó

The soaps seem to be doing a lot of stunt casting at the moment, what with Dani Dyer and Harry Redknapp on EastEnders, plus AJ and Curtis Pritchard on Hollyoaks. Now, it’s the turn of Emmerdale to get in on the act as Andrea books a special guest for the village’s Pride event.

Yet while Faith’s fears mount, an unaware Brenda is starting to feel neglected by Pollard who, at that moment in time, is offering Faith shelter at his home. Cue Brenda turning up to find Faith at the house wearing Pollard’s bath robe.

Despite her then facing the fury of both Brenda and later Chas, Faith swears Pollard to secrecy until she knows for sure what she’s facing. Eric sympathises but is adamant that he won’t throw away his relationship with Brenda and insists that Faith come clean about her health concerns.

Aaron and Ben get closer

There was understandable disappointment being felt by #Robron devotees when we learned that Robert wouldn’t be returning to Emmerdale after all. But like Aaron, we have to move on. And he’s certainly putting Robert to the back of his mind, what with the flirting he’s doing with Ben.

Her latest move is to swipe the Pride collection tin and make it look as though Jacob is the culprit. But her scheme backfires when David just ends up cancelling their dinner plans because he’s worried about the lad.

Later on, Meena gets wind of Leanna’s travel plans and starts to wonder whether Jacob can be tempted along too.

But when Leyla returns from honeymoon, she’s determined to sort things out with her son and get to the bottom of what’s going on with him. With Leyla being a smart cookie, here’s hoping that she also manages to expose Meena’s wrongdoing in the process.
