Emmerdale’s Nicola King star shares BTS secret after mince pie scene on ITV soap

Emmerdale's Nicola King star Nicola Wheeler has shared behind-the-scenes filming secrets after the ITV soap aired the village's carol concert.

During the recent episode, Nicola was seen tucking into a plate of mince pies before the choir's performance as Laurel Thomas shouted: "Nicola, stop stuffing your face! Come on, the choir needs you!"

Holding a huge tray of mince pies, Nicola continued to eat them as she admitted: "I can't get enough!" and then joined the choir to start singing.

Taking to Twitter after the scenes aired, actress Nicola admitted that she hates mince pies in real life and joked that the ITV soap still made her shoot the scene.

She tweeted: "For the record @emmerdale in real life I hate mince pies … they still made me do it #Emmerdale," followed by sick emojis.

Soap fans were quick to react to the tweet as they asked how many takes it required and how many mince pies she had to consume.


One person said: "How many takes did they make you do? and how many eaten overall?" followed by a sick emoji.

A different account joked: "You’re a very good actress! I was sitting here drooling!"

Another follower pointed out: "Could tell by your face you weren’t enjoying it," followed by a laughing emoji.

While a different soap watcher added: "You did pull a strange face, while eating it x."

Elsewhere during the episode, Emmerdale fans went wild as Footballers' Wives star Ben Richards finally made his explosive entrance on the ITV soap as newcomer Gavin.

It was announced earlier this year that the actor, 49, would be joining the hit ITV soap with his character, Gavin, set to "ruffle a few feathers" in the village.
