Emmerdale bosses have confirmed the date of Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) and Dawn Taylor’s (Olivia Bromley) upcoming wedding – and there’s not long for viewers to wait.
The pair, who recently got engaged on the ITV soap, will dive straight into planning their big do, as they are set to walk down the aisle on Valentine’s Day.
However, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to live up to the grand romance of February 14, as the show’s Executive Producers Jane Hudson and Laura Shaw have teased ‘disaster could strike.’
Speaking to OK! and other press outlets at a recent event, Laura revealed: “We've already seen Billy and Dawn get engaged on screen. I don’t think I’m giving too much away if I tell you that their wedding definitely will happen this year.”
She continued: “And it will happen on the most romantic day of the year on Valentine's Day, so not too long to wait for their wedding.”
However, she then teased that there might be several spanners in the work for the couple, who were recently involved in a messy love triangle with Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu).
Laura teased: “But will it all go to plan? Is it going to be happy ever after for these two or will disaster strike? I suspect it's probably the latter…”
While viewers will have to wait and see how Billy and Dawn’s nuptials pan out, there will be plenty more to keep viewers entertained.
The ITV soap bosses went on to confirm a further two weddings will also take place in the village in 2022 – including one that will have the villagers’ tongues wagging.
Jane explained: “There may be a wedding in the summer. Which we'll have to wait and see. You might not guess who that is right now.”
Laura then added: “We've also got another wedding coming up – a third one – and that's a bit more of an unexpected twist.”
“I think that's going to shock quite a few of our villagers and ruffle a few feathers. That is for later in the year.”
This comes after viewers watched Billy propose to on-off girlfriend Dawn, who happily accepted.

The couple initially planned to keep their exciting news top-secret from the other Dales residents.
However, when Dawn’s son Lucas heard the pair discussing their plans, Billy and Dawn decided to announce their engagement to the rest of Dawn’s family.
