Emmerdale spoilers: Vinny Dingle in betting horror as he follows in dad Paul’s footsteps


VINNY Dingle gets drawn into the world of gambling next week in Emmerdale as he follows in his dead dad Paul Ashdale’s footsteps. 

The Dingles discovered that Paul - who was killed in the dramatic wedding barn explosion last week - had been abusing Vinny ahead of his death. 

But Vinny has remained in denial about the abuse, and insisted on organising his dad’s funeral without the support of the rest of the village. 

Next week, Mandy sorts through Paul’s possessions while Lydia and Sam head to the bank to prove that Lydia’s credit card debts were incurred fraudulently. 

Later, Vinny finds a notebook amongst Paul’s things and is shocked to read a comprehensive account of his winnings and losses.

When he shows it to Liv, she tries to persuade him to think about something else.

But when she leaves, viewers will see Vinny peruse Paul’s information on future tips and log into a gambling website.

Meanwhile, Vinny places a secret bet and Mandy is horrified when she walks in on him watching the end of the race.

Mandy worries that Vinny is following in his dead dad's footsteps.

Emmerdale star Bradley Johnson has revealed his character Vinny will remain in denial over Paul Ashdale’s violent nature. 

Speaking about Vinny’s confusion, Bradley told Digital Spy: "Vinny's reaction is one of confusion. He has had a year of this physical and mental abuse. He has ruined his relationship with Liv and I think he's now lost himself completely.

"Vinny is finding it hard to comprehend how to deal with this situation. He is a broken man at the moment, with complete confusion over what to do next.

"People want to forget that it's happened. They want to forget the bad things and just remember the good.

"Vinny is very much like that, as he has given his dad countless chances. Even after everything Paul has done, he just wants to forget all of that negative stuff and see his dad in a good light."
