Strict filming protocols are in place to ensure safety on the sets of both soaps – including keeping cast 2m away from each other at all times.

Scenes are also limited to a maximum of four actors – forcing producers to come up with inventive ways to tell their usual stories.

But bosses are hopeful that they will be able to push the boat out and make a return to the huge week of episodes that fans have dubbed Super Soap Week for years.

It is usually marked by a huge stunt in each of the soaps – with Emmerdale in particular using the week to experiment with story-telling devices.

Unfortunately the pandemic meant plans had to be completely scaled back last year with both soaps halting production for months.

However now a source tells The Sun that plans are in full swing for the return.

"The idea is that as well as the story we can have the big set pieces back that have been too challenging to pull off so far.

"It should be a real treat for fans and packed with action and drama."
