Emmerdale's star reveals socially distanced scenes were 'difficult'

Emmerdale was the first soap to resume filming amid the coroanvirus pandemic and Danny Miller has revealed that fans ‘won’t notice the difference’.

Although he stressed that making the adjustments was ‘difficult’, the Aaron Dingle star discussed all the measures in place that the cast and crew are sticking to.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on Good Morning Britain, Danny disclosed what it’s been like being the first cast member back along with co-star Jeff Hordley (Cain Dingle) and what he found to be testing.

‘First and foremost is the distance, we’re having to abide by the news rules that have been put in place,’ Danny began.

‘Believe it or not, it’s a lot more difficult for us to do the everyday work, because on top of that we’re in charge of cleaning and looking after our own props.

‘The distance between television is unsaid really because you don’t really notice how close you’re getting to the director, but those people are there and ensure we don’t get carried away.’

Danny continued: ‘It goes to show you can do it at a distance and skeletal cast and crew.

‘I don’t think you’ll notice the difference. It’s a little bit slower in places because there’s nothing to cut to, but I really enjoyed it.’

The ITV serial drama returned to filming last month, and members of the cast are back on set — recording six special episodes set during in lockdown — which means that the series will stay on air beyond the already completed episodes.

Filming got underway at the end of May at Emmerdale’s studios in Leeds and safety protocols and social distancing measures will be strictly adhered to by the team on set. The six episodes in question will be recorded over a two-week period.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
