With Pride flags flying outside the hall, the villagers prepare for Emmerdale Pride.

Andrea tells Charles she’s booked an extra special guest. 

As the event kicks off, Charles’ son Ethan makes a big speech, talking about acceptance for all on behalf of Emmerdale Pride and the church. 

Ethan will then welcome Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK icon The Vivienne to the stage, with the star kicking off the soap’s first Pride in style.

Ahead of these scenes, The Vivienne spoke out about how delighted she is to be a part of Emmerdale’s Pride celebrations:

“I’ve got one of my leopard print dresses to thank for getting the chance to
appear in Emmerdale! I woke up one morning and Lisa Riley (Mandy Dingle) was all over Lorraine as it was Mandy’s wedding and her dress was inspired by one of mine. A couple of weeks later I got a call from the show…

“I'm an all round soap fan, Emmerdale, Corrie the lot. I don’t get the time to
watch the soaps as much as I used to but I’m definitely a fan and I’ve got some very jealous friends due to the fact I am here today. Mandy Dingle is my favourite soap character; she is just an absolute style icon. I want to be Mandy Dingle when I'm older.

“It’s not only an honour to be here it's amazing to be making history by being in Emmerdale’s first Pride event making sure the LGBTQ+ community have a voice in soaps. There are already LGBTQ+ characters in soaps but bringing Pride into the people’s living rooms that may not normally attend one is brilliant. Well done Emmerdale and ITV.”

Not all Emmerdale villagers are focused on Pride next week, however, as Meena hatches a sick scheme when she sees the Pride collection tin in the shop. 

The scheming nurse snatches the tin before framing Jacob for the crime. 

Her plan to get between Jacob and his dad fails however, when David cancels their dinner plans to deal with his son.

Later in the week, Meena tries another method when she overhears Leanna’s travel plans, urging Jacob to accompany Leanna.
