    ITV bosses have suspended filming on both Emmerdale and Coronation Street so they can urgently rewrite scenes.

    Producers decided a break was necessary after a manic work schedule for both cast and crew during the coronavirus crisis.

    The Sun also understands there was a Covid-19 outbreak on the Yorkshire set of Emmerdale, which resulted in a deep-clean and a pause in filming.

    Crew on both soaps were told to down tools – with Corrie suspending all work as of Monday – to give the production a chance to refresh having worked relentlessly through the coronavirus crisis. Emmerdale staff will return to work next week.

    During the break both show's script writers will rewrite scenes and storylines to reflect the changing nature of the pandemic.

    Bosses also say they will revisit both show's health and safety requirements to ensure all of the cast and crew remain in good health.

    “Brad manages to say something to her like ‘we’d broken up’, but yeah they’d had an argument and hadn’t spoken to each other for three days and that’s enough for Trish to be okay with it. 

    “Basically, Trish is moving back to Hollyoaks with Brad, who she’s besotted with, he is a property magnate – in inverted commas, not really though! 

    “There’s lots of dodgy stuff going on, but you’ll find out that they’re as bad as each other. So, there is going to be lots of drama with Maxine and Trish.”
