As well as directing Before Dawn, Brunt appears in the movie alongside his wife Joanne Mitchell.

However, asked by Daybreak whether he is moving on from Emmerdale, he replied: "No, God no! I love it so much. I feel very loyal towards Emmerdale.

"[Before Dawn] was a welcome distraction a couple of years ago and we loved doing it. I could work with my wife and we're very proud of it.

"But I'd never leave Emmerdale. Unless they kicked me out, but I think if I went out on the Friday, I'd come back and ask if I could be a cleaner on the Monday!"

Revealing the plot of his film, Brunt explained: "The zombies are there as an allegory, but it's basically about a couple that go away for a weekend to save their marriage, and then their phones stop working, the telly stops working and they can't find anything on the radio.

"Unbeknownst to them, they're in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, and then it's how they deal with what happens. One of them goes for a run, comes back and has been bitten, so it's how they deal with the consequences."

Before Dawn is released on DVD on Monday, February 25.
