Emmerdale announces live event for fans with soap legend

Emmerdale has announced an exciting live event for fans with soap legend Claire King.

It's been confirmed that King, who plays Kim Tate on the ITV soap, will take centre stage for the first in a series of live Emmerdale 'An evening with...' events.

'An evening with... Claire King' will take place on July 26 at the Weetwood Hotel in Lawnswood, where 'Queen of Soaps' and This Morning regular Sharon Marshall will sit down with King to discuss and celebrate her iconic soap legacy.

The pair will also discuss some of King's most memorable moments, they'll chat about and replay some of her best scenes, and maybe even tease a few potential future storylines.

The evening will end by providing fans with the opportunity to ask King some questions of their own.

Tickets can be purchased from the Emmerdale Village Tours website. Standard tickets cost £55, while premium tickets (which include a personal meet and greet with King, as well as a complimentary drink and Souvenir Guidebook) are priced at £85.

"Kim Tate has been and remains an incredible part of my life, the chance to play such a powerful (if not tricky!) character is a gift for any actor and I feel very lucky to do so," King said in a statement.

"I am rather fond of her to be honest and can’t wait to see what she gets up to next! To be given the chance to meet the programme’s fans face to face in our home county of Yorkshire for such a special event is fantastic."

Marshall added: "I am over the moon to be sitting down with Claire for this one - there, without a doubt, only one 'Kim Tate' and as far as soap icons go, she's up there with the best of all time. I suspect it's going to be a wild evening!"

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX. Tickets for 'An evening with... Claire King' can be purchased from the Emmerdale Village Tours website.
