EM­MERDALE! York­shire TV soap is 40 to­day...cel­e­brate with its top­less stars

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By JUSTIN DUNN

IT was once the gen­tlest of Bri­tain’s soaps, vy­ing only with BBC Ra­dio 4’s as a sim­ple cure for in­som­nia.

But 20 years ago Em­merdale bosses thank­fully had a change of heart and ditched tales of sheep rustling for hay-bale sex scan­dals acted out by a string of stun­nas!

Now the Dales soap is all grown up and marks its 40th birthday to­day. Cel­e­bra­tions are tak­ing place all week on ITV1 and a spe­cial hour-long live show screens tonight at 7pm.

Sadly, it’s un­likely to fea­ture the fab­u­lous BOOBS that many of its stars have whipped out over the years.

They in­clude babes like the in­com­pa­ra­ble Linda Lusardi – the one-time num­ber one Page 3 girl who went on to serve time up at Home Farm.

Or the boob­tas­tic Amy Nut­tall, who played vil­lage minx Chloe Atkin­son and is now a star of BBC1’s Down­ton Abbey.

More re­cently the likes of lovely Rox­anne Pal­lett – who played trod-upon Jo Sug­den – bared ALL for the movie Lake Placid 3.

And juicy Jenna-Louise Cole­man – who played les­bian Jas­mine Thomas and is now Doc­tor Who’s sexy new side­kick – flashed her norks in the BBC4 drama Room At The Top.

And there’s loads more stars who’ve whipped ’em out. To mark the an­niver­sary we’ve gath­ered them to­gether!
