Emmerdale fans have been left in a spin after it was revealed the set may soon be open for visits!

Following in the footsteps of fellow ITV1 soap Coronation Street, bosses have asked if the Harewood Estate in Yorkshire can be made public on the weekends.

Not only would it be a money-spinner for the show, the plans would mean viewers could pose for selfies outside Café Hope and walk around the Home Farm Estate. Exciting!

An ITV spokesman said: "We are working with the Harewood Estate to seek permission to open the Emmerdale set for touring at the weekends.

"This would provide a unique opportunity for fans of the show to view an iconic production location."

The life-size Emmerdale set was built on the Harewood Estate, located in Leeds, in 1997.

Previously, the cast and crew had used the real village of Esholt, but it was considered too far away from ITV's Yorkshire Studios.

Last April, Coronation Street opened up the cobbles for 'Coronation Street:The Tour'. Studio guides are on hand to walk fans around the iconic set, which is now based in Manchester's MediaCity UK, until December this year.
