Viewer know that Mandy was horrified when her ex Paul rocked up in the village back in April and demanded to see his son Vinny, who he abandoned and left in Mandy’s care as a baby.
When Mandy told him to get lost, Vinny didn’t take no for an answer and turned up at the scrapyard disguised as ‘Alex’ to befriend Vinny.
But when it became clear that ‘Alex’ already knew Mandy, Paul then blurted out that he was Vinny’s dad.
Vinny was devastated that he’d been lied too, but bonded with Mandy during lockdown as she revealed she’ll never be able to have children after a harrowing miscarriage.
Next week’s episodes of Emmerdale will see Vinny unsettle Mandy when he suggests she still has feelings for Paul.
Later, at the scrapyard, Paul starts to concoct a plan when Vinny admits he fancies his chances with Liv.

Later, Paul organises a dinner date between Liv and Vinny but when Liv cancels, Mandy feels sorry for Paul and sits down and shares it with him.
Later, Mandy bumps into Liv and tells her off for cancelling on Vinny, but she’s shocked by Liv’s response.
