Emmerdale Christmas spoilers – Dingle drama, double baby twist and new romance

Emmerdale Christmas will be "explosive" for some, as the 2019 spoilers and storylines have been confirmed with just weeks to go.

There'll be family drama for the Dingles and the Tates it seems, while new romances will also form in the village.

Ahead of a shocking death and a whodunnit in January, there's a devastating family secret, two baby bombshells and a surprise kiss under the mistletoe – and that's just Christmas, with plenty more happening in 2020.

Producer Kate Brooks told Inside Soap magazine: "We have a few tricks up our sleeves with some twists and turns. On Christmas Day, a lot of secrets will be unpacked and families thrown into disarray. People think they get the Christmas they wanted – but it might not turn out that way.

"It’s very family-centric, big on drama with explosive revelations, relationships unraveling, and people getting together. There is a lot going on! We have a lot going on with the Dingles – and Home Farm is one that you should keep your eye on.

"You can’t have Kim Tate as the mother of that big house without drama!"

"They're having a nice Christmas, then all of a sudden there's a baby on the doorstep. It's not what they expected.

"It's going to have a massive effect and when they find out who the father is… if it's Maya's baby. For both of them it's going to have a massive effect. But for whoever the dad is, it's going to have a massive impact."
