Actor Danny Miller has teased what to expect from Emmerdale in its first episode written post-lockdown.

The 29-year-old telly star has shared details about how he was one of the first actors to return for filming on the ITV favourite.

The Yorkshire-set soap will return with two weeks of six lockdown specials.

These episodes will be the first to be shot under the new social distancing guidelines.

Taking to Twitter, Danny revealed that he would appear in a special episode alongside actor Jeff Hordley as Aaron’s uncle, Cain Dingle.

He tweeted: “WOW – it was so good to be back in Aaron’s house with his lodger.

“The Aaron & Cain episode was the first of the six lockdown episodes to be shot out of that block and under the new structures and rules so everyone was naturally anxious of how and what changes we would face.

“Well I can tell you, the episode is amazing. You’re going to love it!”

Danny also shared some kind words about his co-star and paid tribute to the episode’s writer, director, and ITV at large.

The new episodes were filmed under strict social distancing guidelines

He added: “I would’’t have wanted to share breaking into this new world of television with many others than my good pal Jeff Hordley – who is incredible in this beautiful episode – written by our very own Adam Sales.

“And all the credit goes to our director @ianbevitt & @emmerdale – from paper to screen, for turning the production round to make a great episode at a distance – so we may not see a kiss or a fight on TV for a while, but this shows we can do without and do safely. Bravo @ITV”

ITV’s health and safety team have been working closely with the government to create new procedures for TV drama filming that make production as safe as possible.

According to The Sun, these guidelines include social distancing measures, no location shoots, fewer scene changes, less actors in scenes, filming units working in their own designated studios with their own sanitised equipment, office work being done from home, and those involved in filming completing a thorough health and safety induction for the new measures.

It is hoped that these lockdown specials in June will bridge the gap between pre-recorded episodes and a more widespread return to filming.

The six episodes will focus on Cain and Aaron, Sam and Lydia, Chas and Paddy, Mandy and Vinny, Marlon, Al and Ellis, and Jimmy and Nicola.
