talking to Mirror Regarding the explosive scenes last month, Kate said: ‘A massive storm will rip through the village and leave a trail of destruction in its wake. Some of our most loved villagers will be in trouble. The village will never really be the same again.

‘We also have the return of some very familiar faces for the Dales. Diane, Aaron and Tracy will all reappear on a temporary basis, but at the center of some much bigger stories.’
