The ITV soap is celebrating its 50th anniversary on Saturday. 

Tim added that a number of beloved characters are in danger on the show with plenty of ‘hospital visits’.

‘We do got to the hospital on a number of visits – a number of people hurt by debris flying around the village, there are accidents in the woods, trees falling on people,’ he said.

‘There are massive accidents at the farm, which might attract the attention of one or two characters.’

As well as teasing ‘some stunts in the woods’, Tim suggested there is a lot more to come.

He added: ‘There’s a massive problem in the village that will involved two of the other characters. Plus, there’s some stunts in the woods nearby.

‘And of course, there’s a wedding. So when you mix all of that up, it’s going to be sensational.’

Scary scenes have already shown Kim Tate (Claire King) surviving after she fell off her horse and hit her head on a rock, while Monday’s episode showed Sam Dingle (James Hooton) impaled on a digger’s spikes after getting caught up in a cattle stampede.

Characters being killed off won’t be the only drama this week, with Tim also promising big changes to the village itself.

He added: ‘Viewers are in for a number of surprises. They will see parts of the village destroyed.’

And Nicola Wheeler – who stars as Nicola King – admitted the cast themselves found it tough on set due to the use of high powered wind machines conjuring up 130mph gusts which actually flipped cards and destroyed buildings. 

‘They cranked them up to 100 per cent and you literally can’t walk against them,’ she said.

Katherine meanwhile recently reflected on her character’s death on the soap, saying ‘I don’t think it will hit me that I’m not going back’ as she prepares to say goodbye to the soap after nearly 10 years. 

Detailing what it was like to film the death scenes, Katherine explained: ‘I got very emotional reading it. On the actual day I was covered in blood and I had various bits of woodland hanging out of my hair. We had these industrial wind machines which were literally blowing sand and debris into your eyes.

‘So when it came to it, it wasn’t as emotional because the technicality of what you have to do takes away from the emotion so I managed to get through the day without sobbing. ‘

‘The death wasn’t my last scene though but on my last day I received flowers and lovely gifts and messages. I don’t think it will hit me that I’m not going back for a couple of weeks because it feels like I’m on a break but it will slowly hit me.’
