Soaps join forces for historic crossover event to highlight climate change

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Coronation Street’, ‘EastEnders’, ‘Emmerdale’, ‘Casualty’, ‘Doctors’, ‘Hollyoaks’, and ‘Holby City’ have joined forces for an historic crossover event.
The UK soaps have come together to highlight climate change and environmental issues, and each of the serial dramas have filmed scenes, or have references, to cover different aspects of the issue.
Each show will also reference each other in a soap first, with some characters set to appear in another soap.
A special week commencing on November 1st – the same week world leaders meet to discuss the climate crisis at the COP26 conference – will see a ‘Hollyoaks’ character appear in ‘EastEnders’, and villagers of the Channel 4 show will learn about events at ‘Holby City’.
Two of Emmerdale’s residents will feature in a social media video shown to ‘Coronation Street’ characters, and one of the ‘Doctors’ characters will appear on the ‘Corrie’ cobbles.
What’s more, ‘Casualty’ will be discussed in Emmerdale’s The Woolpack pub, and a social media clip from ‘Corrie’ will be spoken about in EastEnders’ Queen Vic.
Emmerdale’s Executive Producer Jane Hudson – who originally conceived the idea for the unique initiative – said: “Never before have all five soaps and both continuing dramas come together and united in telling one story.
“And we certainly haven’t seen characters pop up in other shows before.
“This is a real treat for our audience, whilst also allowing us to get across a very important message.”
Former ‘Emmerdale’ and ‘Corrie’ boss Kate Oates – who is now Head of Continuing Drama at BBC Studios – added: “I’m thrilled that our soaps and serial dramas have all come together to help highlight the issue of climate change amongst our millions of viewers.
“We’re grateful to the teams that made this happen, and hugely look forward to seeing the talent from our own shows popping up in other iconic programmes.”
Lucy Allan, Executive Producer of ‘Hollyoaks’, admitted it was “great” to team up with the other soaps.
She said: “We know how important climate change and environmental issues are to our youthful audience, and to all soap viewers.
“It has been great to work together on an engaging way to, hopefully, inspire conversations about issues that are so important.”
