A fan finds Emmerdale’s top-secret script for the main story in a bin during the Yorkshire set tour
An Emmerdale fan has found a top-secret script while taking a tour of the famous Yorkshire Dales set.
The confidential documents, which revealed the storylines for the upcoming episodes, were found in a bin, leaving ITV vowing to “get to the bottom of this”.
Fans visiting the set, which costs £35 per ticket, were told at the start of the tour last month that the containers could be used normally and were not props.
However, when an Emmerdale fan went to dispose of a water bottle, he saw the scripts and managed to ‘take a photo’ of them.
They said sun on sunday:’I was putting a bottle in the trash can and the script was there. It was a normal black bin on set behind Chloe Harris’s house props.
‘Shocking’: An Emmerdale fan has found a top-secret script while on an organized tour of the famous Yorkshire Dales set in Leeds
Top secret: The confidential document, which revealed the stories of the upcoming episodes, was found in a bin leaving ITV vowing to “get to the bottom of this” (Pictured Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) and Dad Rishi (Bhasker Patel ))
“I went to put a plastic bottle and suddenly I saw the scripts, so I took a picture of them.
“The idea that such a famous production would leave scripts lying around is truly shocking, especially when in the wrong hands it could be used for other, more sinister reasons.”
The script was labeled “confidential” and, according to the fan, revealed developments in the story involving businessman Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) and father Rishi (Bhasker Patel).
Earlier this month, ITV viewers found out that Jai was adopted, something he has struggled to accept ever since.
Other documents found on the set of the Harewood Estate near Leeds included a floor map of the buildings in the town of Emmerdale, with arrows detailing the locations of cameras and floor managers.
The publication agreed with ITV not to share any of the spoilers for the stories found.
ITV said: ‘We take security very seriously because we know that our audience doesn’t like to know the plots in advance.
“We will try to get to the bottom of how these scripts disappeared.”
