A SPECIAL Christmas episode of ITV nursing drama Where The Heart Is will hit the screens on December 23.
The series, filmed around Slaithwaite and Marsden, is currently off the air, but filming starts for the eighth series in January.
Minder star Dennis Waterman and Georgia Taylor - who played Toyah Battersby in Coronation Street - will star in the Christmas special, titled Archangel.
Taylor will play young pregnant mum Jodie Walters.
She told how it had been a great experience to learn from Dennis Waterman when she joined the cast.
Georgia said: "This was my first job out of Coronation Street and it was a bit daunting on the first day of filming.
"I was made to feel very welcome at Where The Heart Is."
A white Christmas is ensured in Skelthwaite - thanks to an explosion at the toilet roll factory.
Georgia Taylor's character Jodie is shown in the Christmas special returning from university to the delight of her dad Mike, played by Waterman.
Mike is bitter after the death of his son Matthew in a climbing accident, blaming himself for pushing his son to live up to his own sporting prowess.
He is also blaming Matt's friend Rob for the tragedy.
But Jodie's return does not bring good news.
She has dropped out of university and has been living rough, too scared to go home and tell Mike she is pregnant - with Rob's baby.
Sparks fly, but can her baby son's arrival - in a stable for the Christmas theme - bring a truce between the feuding family?
Georgia said she enjoyed being in Where The Heart Is.
"The characters I have played have generally been good souls.
"I would love to be a baddie. I'd also love to do comedy," she confessed.
Georgia has played two pregnant women in just 12 months, having also appeared in the role of a war widow in the new series of Redcap.
The December 23 Where The Heart Is will be on ITV at 9pm.
