The 'Emmerdale' set is "buzzing" ahead of the live show tonight (17.10.12).
The ITV1 soap is celebrating its 40th birthday with the special instalment on the Yorkshire Dales and Sammy Winward - who plays Katie Sugden - admits nerves are at fever-pitch as they prepare for the episode, in which her character gets married.
She said: "I'm feeling a lot of nervous excitement now the countdown has begun because the wedding features so heavily.
"I'm amazed we are fitting so much into one hour of TV. It's a very ambitious project and the atmosphere is buzzing. I've worn Katie's wedding dress already, which is lovely.
"It isn't what I would have chosen but it is perfect because I look like a real rich bitch!"
Katie is set to marry Declan Macey - played by Jason Merrells - in one of two wedding shown tonight, but she is not hopeful the union will last.
She added: "I hope the wedding is a success, but it probably won't be. Katie is starting to like having money and I think she will become much feaistier and bitchier after the wedding.
"She'll start annoying a lot of people."
The live episode is screened tonight at 7pm.
