He was involved in one of the most dramatic storylines Yorkshire soap Emmerdale has known for a long time and tonight you could get the chance to meet actor James Barton, who played Bill Ward.

Bill met his demise in a car crash last year. James will appear at the Studio Experience on Burley Road, Leeds tonight (July 7). Show stalwart Sammy Winward (who played Katie Sugden) will also return on Friday September 29.

The evening starts at 6pm, includes supper and guided tour and ends in the Woolpack.

Meanwhile, ITV has promised “dramatic and entertaining plots” in Emmerdale in coming months, leading to the departure of some stars. Tickets £55 per person, call 01904 261 262.
