Emmerdale fans are gearing up for an explosive episode on Christmas day when the Woolpack pub will go up in flames. And, according to the actress who plays murderous Meena, the drama was just as intense on-set as it will be on our TV screens.

Paige Sandhu, 24, teased that the explosion was “incredible” and so powerful, it shook the entire room.

Paige said: “They filmed the explosion at the back of the pub first and the explosion at the front second.

“I was in my dressing room for the second explosion and the fire blew across my window and shook the entire room.

“It was incredible!”

Paige added to OK! that she is eager to see how the explosion turns out, and so she will be tuning in on Christmas day.

She will also be watching because her grandmother is a “huge Emmerdale fan”.

Luckily for impatient soap-lovers, they don’t have to wait until Christmas night to watch the drama unfold.

It has been revealed that the Emmerdale and Coronation Street Christmas episodes will be dropped early on the ITV Hub, so fans can catch all the action before it airs on the TV.

Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day episodes of both soaps will be available on the ITV Hub from 7am ahead of their evening broadcasts.

Evil Meena has become one of the soap’s biggest villains after bumping off several residents.

It now seems she could be eyeing up her next victim after being dumped by Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzie).

In scenes yet to air, Billy will break up with Meena and tell her he wants to be in a relationship with Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley).

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Paige explained that Meena wants “any excuse to kill”.

She continued: “I think when Meena is in a relationship she wants to fully possess them and own them.

“Any close relationship to that person, be that child, grandfather or else she is going to want to take them away from them so she gets all of that attention.

“Dawn is a big threat so she’s in trouble.”

It has been suggested that Meena could murder Billy in front of Dawn to cause her the ultimate heartache.

Paige continued: “[Meena] wants to have revenge and take out her anger on Dawn and ruin her life.”

Emmerdale continues weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
