Emmerdale producer Laura Shaw has teased a new serious health storyline on the ITV soap that will have a "huge impact" on the village.

It comes after Marlon Dingle, played by Mark Charnock, recently had a life-threatening stroke in heartbreaking episodes with the ITV soap working closely with the charity, Stroke Association, to give a "realistic and authentic depiction" of his journey.

And now Emmerdale producer Laura has revealed that another character in the village will face a health storyline in upcoming weeks.

Talking to Metro.co.uk, Laura said: "Marlon’s long recovery continues, another character will face a health storyline, it will have a huge impact on everyone close to them."

It remains to be seen who will be impacted by the plot and what the health storyline will be.

Elsewhere, the hit ITV soap is set for a shocking week of twists and turns during a special flash forward week of episodes, beginning on Monday 9 May, where several "lives will definitely be in danger".

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, the ITV soap's producer Laura shared teasers to some shock storylines and jaw-dropping stunts that viewers can enjoy in the coming months.

The producer revealed that the soap will have a special storyline week, which will see a series of flash forwards make their way into the episodes, giving "the audience the chance to try and play a bit of Emmerdale detective and see if we can work out what's going to happen during the week".

In terms of what drama we can expect coming up on the soap, Laura teased: "We see Noah's obsession with Chloe reach a bit of a crescendo and we'll see Gabby pushed to the limit at Home Farm.

"We know Jamie Tate is still alive. So is he coming back for Thomas? If so. what lengths will Gabby go to protect her son and stop him from being taken from her?

"We'll see something's going on with Faith, that she's keeping a secret but why? And we'll also see the Cain and Al rivalry resurface and I can promise you that that will take a big twist in special week and lives will definitely be in danger.

"When Cain ends that episode saying 'It's just the calm before the storm', trust me he means it."
