The haunting new trailer transforms the Emmerdale village into a birthday cake which crumbles in reflection of the devastation set to hit the village. 

The harrowing new trailer is set to the tune of Smalltown Boy by Bronski Beat and features models of characters such as Kim Tate, Charity Dingle, Cain Dingle and Noah Dingle.

Liv and Vinny can be seen running through the woods as Vinny is swept away by a gust of wind.

Then some of the cake crumbles to the ground, plunging Marlon, Chas and Sam into oblivion.

However, fans think they know who is wearing a hood and disguised in the storm.

Taking to Twitter, one said: “Perfect return for Meena @paige_sandhu as a hooded figure is seen!”

Another wrote: “Or Joe Tate! Could be Jamie.”

A third penned: “Someone mentioned a hooded figure… Joe Tate? Meena? Jamie? Someone else?

A number of returns have been teased ahead of the big 50th celebrations. 

Amy Walsh, sister of Girls Aloud star Kimberley, is set to return as Tracy Metcalfe with baby Frankie in tow but how will she react to Nate’s (Jurell Carter) budding romance with Naomi and does she have a bigger secret she is keeping hidden?.

I’m A Celebrity champion, Danny Miller, is also back as Aaron Dingle as he looks set to help out his sister Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) following the betrayal from her mother Sandra.

Diane Sugden is also back in the village ahead of the big birthday but just what she gets up to remains to be seen?
