Scouting For Girls swapped packed arenas for a pub by playing a dream gig at Emmerdale's famed Woolpack.

The band played an acoustic session from the famous boozer, which was broadcast live on JK And Joel's breakfast show on Leeds station Radio Aire.

The group's drummer, Pete Ellard, is a huge fan of the rural soap.

He joined bandmates Roy Stride and Greg Churchouse in playing latest single This Ain't a Love Song and hits She's So Lovely and Heartbeat to the packed set, where cast members Natalie J Robb (Moira Barton) and James Thornton (John Barton) were among the audience.

Bassist Churchouse said: "Performing in the Woolpack is one of those life experiences you could never replicate. Pete is a massive fan so he will never forget this."

Ellard joked that the band could be in line for an appearance on the soap, saying: "We've had a little chat with the producer already this morning."
