We don’t really have the words, so we’re just going to cut and paste this. God help us all.

EMMERDALE stars want to take on rival soaps in an online Olympics after being treated to a Nintendo Wii by TV bosses.

Matthew Wolfenden, 27, who plays bed hopping rogue David Metcalfe said: “It’s great as we’ve got a new games room and we love playing ten pin bowling and tennis on the Wii.

“I’m not that good myself, but I’m getting in plenty of practice – Matthew Bose who plays Paul Lambert is the highest scorer.

“It’s fantastic as you can play the games online so I think it’s time for a soap championship against Corrie, EastEnders and Hollyoaks.

“The only problem is that we’re late on set as we love playing the Wii so much!”
