Legendary ice dancers, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, are due to appear in a Christmas episode of Emmerdale this year.

Filming has taken place at a location in Leeds and the Olympic gold medal winners have reunited on ice to help a well loved Emmerdale character with a festive marriage proposal.

Christopher Dean said “It is amazing being here. We have jumped from watching Emmerdale on TV to being in a scene. From the screen to the scene. I’m loving it.”

Jayne Torvill added “I can’t wait to watch the episode that we are going to be in. It will be surreal sitting at home watching it.”

Emmerdale Producer, Laura Shaw, commented: "We are delighted to welcome Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean as our very special guests to Emmerdale. Torvill and Dean certainly promise to bring the Christmas magic sparkle to the show."

Emmerdale airs Mon-Fri at 7:30pm on ITV1.
