EMMERDALE’S famous Woolpack pub is going to burn down in a Christmas horror.
According to reports the beloved watering hole will be half destroyed in a fire and end up being boarded up for the festive season.
It will be burnt out in a dramatic Christmas storyline, claims the Metro.
HOAR exclusively revealed how actor Ben Richards has joined the cast as Gavin, an associate of Al Chapman.
Viewers know Al is desperate to destroy the business so he can sell it and develop it into luxury apartments.
Will he resort to drastic measures to get it done?
It comes just days after ITV teased an explosive Christmas in the village.
The soap teased: “It’s the season of good will, but the underhanded Al Chapman goes sparing on dishing out any joy, particularly when he is feeling under so much pressure.
“Will Al find a solution for his financial problems or could his world collapse?
“The seasonal cheer will give some villagers the confidence to make life-changing decisions and fresh starts with their lives.
