Emmerdale viewers are anxiously awaiting to find out if Andrea Tate has become serial killer Meena Jutla's latest victim following their epic showdown in recent scenes.

Bosses have confirmed that that not everyone will end Super Soap Week alive.

There have been barely clues to which character might die during its dramatic storyline but Andrea was last seen gasping for air as she laid in the middle of a blaze after being attacked by evil Meena.

Over its nearly 50 year history, Emmerdale characters have died in some of the biggest disasters in soap history.

Daily Star has taken a look back at some of the show's most tragic deaths.

Sarah Sugden

Sarah Sugden died during a tragic barn yard fire in 2000, which had been started by her son Andy.

The family were in financial difficulty, so Andy had decided to set fire to the barn to claim the insurance money, unaware that his mum was inside.

While Sarah was talking to lover Richie about her plans to get back together with ex Jack Sugden, the barn went up in flames and Sarah was too scared to move.

Although Jack and Richie tried to save her, the barn exploded, killing Sarah instantly.

Patricia Holmes, Bob Simmonds and Butch Dingle

Tragedy struck again in 2000, when a faulty lorry crashed into a bus carrying some of the villagers.

Driven by Pete Collins, the truck lost brake power and caused a number of casualties and deaths, including Patricia Holmes, Bob Simmonds and Butch Dingle.

Butch had been sat at the back of the bus where the largest amount of damage had occurred, but he didn't die instantly.

Instead, viewers got to see an emotional moment where he married love of his life Emily, before passing away of his injuries a few hours later.

Tricia Dingle

In 2003, a terrible storm hit the village of Emmerdale and caused disastrous consequences for characters including Tricia Dingle.

Tricia had decided to leave the village after her husband Marlon had slept with Charity, but she decided to return after reading a letter from him that listed all the things he loved about her.

As she entered the Woolpack to find Marlon, a bolt of lightning hit the pub and the roof collapsed on top of her.

Although she was rescued by Marlon and Diane Sugden, she suffered extensive injuries and Marlon made the heart-breaking decision to turn off her life support machine.

Val Pollard

In 2015, Emmerdale favourite Val Pollard died during a tragic accident at a fun fair.

During the event, a helicopter crashed into the fun fair, with the explosion trapping her and sister Diane Sugden in the hall of mirrors.

Though emergency services found them, she begged for Diane to be saved first.

It was too late for Diane, who had already seen a piece of glass hanging above her, and as she said, "Go on then, do your worst. I’m not frightened of ya," the shard fell and killed her.

Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV at 7pm
