Ever since Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) departed Emmerdale after her surprise reappearance earlier this year a big question has hung in the air – what was the real secret she was hiding?
She blew back into the village like a hurricane with a huge secret in tow, which appeared to be that Vinnie (Bradley Johnson) was Paddy Kirk’s (Dominic Brunt) teenage son. It later transpired that was not the case and she revealed that her ‘secret’ was that Bear was Paddy’s dad.
But as she and Vinnie drove away from the Woolpack, it became clear that Mandy hadn’t in fact actually given the big reveal at all and left the village with her secret still just that.
But now she’s back it’s time for it all to come spilling out that she’s been hiding a whopper from the family, one that could spell danger.
At Butler’s Farm, she and Vinnie are desperately searching for a bag and clearly up to no good. Chas susses something is up and walks in on their frantic searching, and she discovers them with a huge bag of stolen cash and casino chips. Chas blabs to the rest of the Dingles about what Mandy has been up to and they’re horrified – what has she got herself into?
Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) offers to help Mandy out in changing up the chips and the pair meet at the scrapyard to make the deal. Aaron chastises Mandy for what she’s done to the family and reveals he’s already taken a percentage of the dosh for his troubles.
Mandy hadn’t planned on giving any of her hoard away and she lashes out in rage. But as she does so he drops all of the money into a burning barrel nearby and she has to watch as her cash goes up in flames. Or does it?
It’s clear Aaron is up to something, has he somehow kept the cash for himself and Robert? If he has, could he now be playing his own dangerous game?
But the bigger question is who the heck has Mandy stolen the money from? No doubt whoever it is will be wanting it back and it’s unlikely that they’ll just politely ask. Are the Dingles about to be faced with fresh trouble all thanks to Mandy?
