Emmerdale’s Woolpack pub engulfed in flames in explosive Christmas Day first look

The first look at the devastating fire that will tear the Emmerdale Woolpack apart has been released.

On Christmas Day, viewers of the famous ITV soap will be on the edge of their seats as the huge fire rages in the pub in the heart of the village.

And the image just released from the holiday special shows the beloved Main Street pub on fire, with hell quickly spreading over the benches outside.

No one appears to be in the vicinity of the devastating fire, but fans will have to wait and see if there are any injuries or deaths.

Producer Kate Brooks said of the fire: “It’s not just the Woolpack that goes up in flames on Christmas Day as secrets and lies explode, tearing the lives of some of our beloved villagers and making it a Christmas they will never have. forget.”

While news of the fire went out for a few weeks, Emmerdale’s cast and crew remained in awe of the top-secret storylines.

It has not yet been revealed how the fire will start and whether it is an accident or it could be something more sinister.

The latest explosive storyline comes after The Woolpack owners Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) and Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) continued to struggle with the pub’s finances.

After months of trying to get their business back on track, the Dingle couple eventually let Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) invest.

But the duo recently discovered that Al had alternative plans: to turn The Woolpack site into a brand new luxury apartment condo.

Chas told Al in no uncertain terms that he would not get his hands on the family business under any circumstances.

However, he replied that they would return to him when they needed the money.

Soap bosses previously teased what will happen on the holiday special, saying, “It’s goodwill season, but sneaky Al Chapman continues to dispense joys sparingly, particularly when he feels so pressured.”

They continued: “Will Al find a solution to his financial problems or could his world collapse?”

The Woolpack pub has appeared in various plots over the years. It had previously burned down in 1998 after a candle was left alight.

In 1993 the pub was damaged in a plane crash and ten years later, in 2003, lightning brought down its fireplace, causing Tricia Dingle to die prematurely.

The Christmas Day episode will air at 7pm for a one-hour special on ITV and later on ITV Hub.
