Blackmail threats, cruel deception, and forbidden, secret liaisons are about to send shockwaves through the Emmerdale village. And some of the residents are about to find out that their actions can have serious consequences.
Feeling incredibly lonely after finding out about his wife Chas Dingle’s (Lucy Pargeter) affair with Al Chapman (Michael Wildman), Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) could be forgiven when he finds himself falling into the arms of his ex-wife Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley).
Paddy opens up to Mandy, but as they take a trip down memory lane, old passions are reawakened and they soon find themselves falling into bed together. Will this instant need for gratification and company help Paddy, or will he find himself spiralling into an even deeper depression?
Since the birth of Amelia Spencer’s (Daisy Campbell) baby, Noah Dingle (Jack Downham) has shown a love and support for Amelia that biological father Samson Dingle (Sam Hall) has lacked.
As Noah generously suggests setting up a trust fund for baby Esther, we’ll soon see scheming Samson’s cogs whirring and Noah will find himself being blackmailed for money. But Samson’s scheming won’t just impact Noah, it could also compromise his entire family.
Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) and Charity Dingle’s (Emma Atkins) tumultuous relationship has been tested over the last year after the loss of their unborn child. Thinking they were on a break, Mack found himself in bed with Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland).
Instantly regretting his one-night stand, Mack hoped to put the affair behind him, but with the news that Chloe was carrying his baby, Mack has since carried a heavy secret. With his relationship with Charity in a better place than it’s ever been, Charity and Mack have a big Dingle wedding to look forward to.
But the past has a habit of catching up with you and it’s only a matter of time before this baby bombshell explodes in Mack’s face. With the revelation that the love of her life cheated on her, could we see Charity revert to the old her and press the self-destruct button?
