Part of the big event will see a huge month of drama and at the centre will be a shocking event.
The life-changing event will see one villager facing life in prison.
Executive producer Jane Hudson revealed: “When we get to the end of October, it might be the end of our celebrations, but we will be ending that month with a storyline which kicks off another big story, which potentially sees one of our characters spending the rest of their life in jail.
“I am not going to tell you anything else.
“We are making sure that when our celebration month ends, it’s really just the beginning of a whole new chapter, particularly for one of our families.”
Jane would not be drawn on details but she did tease that a murder could happen during the big month.
“There is always potential for a murder in Emmerdale,” she told Entertainment Daily and other press.
“This is Emmerdale and it’s famous for its murders.
