NEWLY returned Mandy Dingle will pretend to be pregnant with her ex-husband – Paddy Kirk’s – baby in Emmerdale next week.
It’s not entirely clear why Mandy – who’s played by Lisa Riley – pulls the pregnancy stunt but she spots an opportunity to attend an ante-natal class with Paddy – Dominic Brunt - when his real pregnant lover – Chas Dingle – doesn’t want to go.
What is Mandy up to?
Emmerdale fans were delighted when Mandy made her long-awaited comeback last week, walking in on cousin Marlon’s cheating wife, Jessie.
The fan favourite arrived back in the village in the second episode of tonight's double bill after a brief stint on the show earlier this year.
And she found herself straight in the middle of a drama as she walked into Marlon's house and caught his wife Jessie snogging her ex-husband Al.
Jumping apart, Jessie cried: "What the hell are you doing here?"
Looking seriously unimpressed, Mandy replied: "Ruining the moment obviously."
Jessie immediately told her off for bursting into her home, but she was having none of it.
She said sarcastically: "I think you'll find this is his house and you won't be here much longer."
As Jessie pleaded with Mandy not to tell her cousin, she said: "Have you been on the nail polish? Of course I have to tell him!"
Jessie then brought up Marlon's young daughter April, and whipping round, Mandy hissed: "Are you really going to go there? His little girl?
"You're a cheating skank and you're not going to talk your way out of this one."
Viewers were loving Mandy's sassy return, and took to Twitter to sing her praises.
One wrote: "Mandy coming in all guns blazing. #Emmerdale #TheDingles."
Another added: "Mandy Dingle! What a legend! #emmerdale @emmerdale."
While a third tweeted:"Go on Mandy give her what for #cheatingskank #emmerdale."
However moments later they were left heartbroken as Marlon discovered what Jessie and Al had been up to in his home.
