Liz Dawn joins Emmerdale for Christmas cameo

Liz Dawn, who played Vera Duckworth on Coronation Street, is returning to the world of soap.  She'll be playing a cameo role in the Christmas episode of Emmerdale.

Liz told ITV: “There’s only one show I’d come out of retirement for and it’s Emmerdale, particularly as I’ve celebrated my 76th birthday this week (8 November) so I wanted to mark the occasion. I love my character. What a feisty lady she is! Giving them all a run for their money in the B&B on Christmas Day. She’s so rude to them which isn’t like me at all.

"The cast and production team at Emmerdale have been so lovely and really looked after me and I was particularly pleased to be directed by Tony Prescott.

I’ve worked with him over many years at Corrie and he’s a lovely man, really good at what he does and very creative. I’ll be looking forward to seeing my scene on Christmas Day and introducing you all to Mrs Winterbottom.”

Filming has taken place this week and is due to air in Emmerdale’s hour long Christmas day episode.

Hmmm..... “There’s only one show I’d come out of retirement for and it’s Emmerdale...". Is that an indirect slur against Corrie? That comment took me by surprise, for sure.

I took it as the fact she couldn't come back to Corrie as Vera is dead. Yes I know she did once but shes not going to start haunting the street.....she's not Ivy Tilsley! Liz would never slur the cobbles! - Micky

She was always a fan of Emmerdale.
