Emmerdale spoilers follow.
Emmerdale has revealed that it is bringing famed ice dancers Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean to the village for a special Christmas episode at the end of the year.
Filming has already taken place at an undisclosed location in Leeds, with the Olympic champion figure skaters and Dancing on Ice stars making a special appearance in the Dales in order to help an Emmerdale character with a festive marriage proposal.
It hasn't yet been confirmed which characters are involved in the special romantic gesture, but it has been said that the character seeking their help is "well loved".
Dean said of his experience filming on the soap: "It is amazing being here. We have jumped from watching Emmerdale on TV to being in a scene. From the screen to the scene. I'm loving it."
His skating partner Torvill also shared her excitement about their role, saying: "I can't wait to watch the episode that we are going to be in. It will be surreal sitting at home watching it."
Emmerdale producer, Laura Shaw, commented: "We are delighted to welcome Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean as our very special guests to Emmerdale. Torvill and Dean certainly promise to bring the Christmas magic sparkle to the show."
Following their special Christmas appearance on Emmerdale, Torvill and Dean will be seen in the upcoming 2024 series of Dancing on Ice as they return to their roles as judges.
The pair will be reuniting with an Emmerdale star for the new series, as Leyla Harding actress Roxy Shahidi is one of the celebrities taking part in the 2024 run.
Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
