Among the events taking place in Emmerdale this week include a special episode this Friday, marking International Women’s Day.

Before this, Aaron Livesy (Bryan Parry) has to attend a surrogacy meeting on his own when Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) fails to turn up, Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) plans to ruin David’s latest night away, while Jessie and Marlon Dingle (Sandra Marvin and Mark Charnock) prepare for their honeymoon in Belfast.

However, on Friday Emmerdale honours International Women’s Day with an episode with an all-female cast and filmed with a female-led crew, in what is believed to be a soap first.

Emmerdale is on throughout the week at 19.00, with an extra episode at 20.00 on Thursday.
