Emmerdale viewers confused as soap airs scenes in hotels and cafes with no social distancing after lockdown episodes
EMMERDALE fans have been left confused by scenes filmed in hotels and cafes with no social distancing being enforced.
Viewers hit social media to vocalise their surprise at tonight's show which followed their special lockdown episodes.
As they watched Andrea Tate being found alive and well in a hotel lobby, one wrote: "This is weird. We’ve had weeks of lockdown episodes but now they’re in the cafe and now hotels ? #Emmerdale"
Another added: "They acknowledge lockdown now no social distancing or anything ??? What’s going on ffs #Emmerdale".
And: "I’m a bit confused with the #Emmerdale set up… is this not following on from the “lockdown episodes”".
One fan simply asked: "How come the cafe’s open?" as characters came in and out of the local food spot.
"Everyone's been in lockdown in #Emmerdale for the past month or so and now they're back to footage filmed beforehand. I don't get how it's meant to work," said one surprised watcher.
While others tried to explained what exactly was going on and wrote: "Viewers, they said at the start that this is filmed pre lockdown, stop complaining 🤣🤣🤣 #emmerdale".
"They said some scenes," clarified another.
Emmerdale's Lisa Riley recently gave fans a rare look behind the scenes on the soap – showing the homes all lined up in a vast studio.
The Mandy Dingle star, 43, revealed some of the new measures in place on the set in Leeds, including a lady who enforces social distancing with a giant stick.
She explained how the temperatures of the actors and crew are being taken on the way into the ITV base – and the whole building converted into a one-way system.
Lisa said: "We are now in charge of our own hair and make-up and of course our wardrobe is laid out for us in our room, fully sanitised, in the order we're going to shoot that day."
