This is going to go down in TV/Soap history as one of the biggest 'Holy Sh*t' moments of all time. It was just straight up traumatic and we're still not sure we've recovered.
First of all, a round of applause for everyone involved on the show because these stunts really were on the Hollywood blockbuster level. No more CGI helicopters and obvious crash test dummies on this show, oh no.
Even Twitter was full of praise for the show as jaws collectively dropped around the world.
Shit. That was fucking intense ðŸ˜©ðŸ'¥ #emmerdale when did you become a Hollywood action movie ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚

If anyone had doubts about #emmerdale being good, then now you've gotten proof that it really is the best british soap.
