Why isn't Emmerdale on ITV tonight? | The Sun
9th September 2022

EMMERDALE fans are used to seeing the soap on weekday nights on ITV.

But tonight (September 9, 2022) the show is taking a break to make way for some very special programming.

Why isn't Emmerdale on ITV tonight?

Emmerdale is not on tonight as ITV has changed their programming schedule in order to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II.

Instead of the soap being on at 7.30pm, there will be an extended ITV Evening News programme.

This programme will also cover King Charles' speech, which is due to take place at 6pm.

After the news at 8.30pm, there will be a special tribute programme called Queen Elizabeth II – The Longest Reign.

Presented by Jonathan Dimbleby, this one off show will explore Her Majesty's historic reign on the throne.

ITV has also confirmed that all advert breaks have been pulled from its main channel until further notice, as a mark of respect.

What is Emmerdale about?

The series is set in Emmerdale (known as Beckindale until 1994), a fictional village in the Yorkshire Dales.

A farmhouse, Emmerdale Farm, was the original focal point of the show when it first broadcast in 1972.

The farm was the home of the Sugden family, having been purchased by Jacob Sugden in the 1930s.

However, the show has evolved and is now about all the people who live in the village.

Where is Emmerdale filmed?

When Emmerdale first catapulted onto our screens back in 1972, it was filmed in the village of Arncliffe in North Yorkshire. 

In 1975, the fictional village moved to West Yorkshire in order to cut production costs and was filmed in another real-life village, Esholt in Shipley.

The exterior scenes of the soap were filmed at Esholt for 22 years but by 1998 local residents had grown tired of the production crew’s presence and the tourists the soap was attracting.
