Emmerdale shares behind-the-scenes filming secrets from explosive flash forward week

Emmerdale has shared behind-the-scenes secrets from the ITV soap's explosive flash forward week of episodes, which aired Monday 9 May to Friday 13 May.

Taking to Twitter, the hit ITV soap released a video showing exactly how Noah Dingle's shocking grave scene was shot and Cain Dingle's almost deadly car crash.

Emmerdale captioned the video with: "Ever wondered how we film dangerous scenes safely?! Well wonder no more! Here's how it's done… #Emmerdale #BehindTheScene @itv @itvhub @WeAreStv."

In the video, it sees Noah actor Jack Downham and Kerry Wyatt actress Laura Norton rehearsing the scene when Kerry throws Noah in a muddy grave after discovering he had been stalking Chloe Harris.


The ITV soap revealed that they used crash mats to practice the scene before adding lots of "soft things" to land on, such as cardboard boxes, inside the grave for the explosive moment.

While Cain's almost deadly car crash with Chas Dingle, where he was saved by enemy Al Chapman, used fake smoke to give the illusion of a serious vehicle accident.

The ITV soap made sure they did plenty of safety checks with the telephone poll, which landed on the car after Cain escaped, carefully lowered for the scenes.


While Cain, Chas and Al stars — Jeff Hordley, Lucy Pargeter and Michael Wildman — kept safe distances during the explosive moment.

Viewers were quick to comment on the behind-the-scenes video, as well as the dramatic week of flash forward episodes.

One person said: "Amazing scenes tonight glad no one died, and so many different stories. Just hope all cast not too tired."
