Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle has visited the set of Emmerdale forward of the ITV cleaning soap’s 10,000th episode.

But the Chorley MP is staying tight-lipped over whether or not he’ll make a cameo look within the present.

Sir Lindsay fulfilled a long-standing promise to cross the Pennines for a tour of the cleaning soap’s primary studios.

After assembly the crew, he headed into the Yorkshire countryside to go to the solid on the Woolpack pub, earlier than having fun with a cuppa on the Hide cafe, all a part of the village set.

The Speaker, 66, wore a pair of Emmerdale wellies that he had been gifted at a 2022 reception at his Westminster residence, when he invited solid and crew from Emmerdale and Coronation Street to have a good time northern drama.

He mentioned: “Incredibly, Emmerdale has been on our screens for more than half a century – shining a light on the lived experience of others, entertaining viewers with its hard-hitting storylines, while also making a major economic contribution to the North. It has been an honour to help the cast celebrate the 10,000th episode of this enduring Yorkshire-based soap, with a visit to
the Woolpack.

“As a Lancastrian, I am hugely impressed by the talent and warmth of our friends on ‘the other side’ of the Pennines.”

ITV government John Whiston added: “Showing balance between the northern soaps, Mr Speaker is following up his visit to Coronation Street with a visit to the other side – Emmerdale.

“So, after a celebratory 10,000th episode visit to the Dales, and a meet and greet with the people who make the show, the question is, did one of the most famous Lancastrians of his time get caught on film in Yorkshire?”

`Pressed on whether or not Sir Lindsay would play a cameo position in a future episode, an ITV supply mentioned: “I’m afraid we can’t confirm or deny … but perhaps keep your eyes peeled in The Hide in about six weeks time.”
