Emmerdale is lining up a big adventure for Paddy Kirk and Marlon Dingle in 2019 as the pair head off to Belfast where one of them makes a huge discovery. And now Dominic Brunt has leaked a few more details about what fans can expect – clarifying that it isnt connected to Mandys return storyline.
As Lisa Riley returns to our screens after 17 years away from playing Mandy, she comes with the bombshell that she was a teenage son called Vinnie. But Dominic explained that this is the planting of a seed that may or may not sprout down the line – Paddy and Marlons little holiday is something else entirely.
He told Metro.co.uk: All I can say is Belfast. Its a little holiday for me and Mark Charnock and is completely separate to Mandys comeback. Itll be good fun.
No more details were available but Lucy Pargeter added that its a busy year for Paddy and Chas too when asked whether there could be another attempt at a wedding between the much loved duo.
She mused: Id like to have a Dingle wedding and walk down the aisle and not jilt someone or for it to last for just a day. But do it in the summer please, we do everything in winter and its freezing cold. But we have got something else next year that isnt a wedding…
But before weddings, Belfast and that mysterious something else, how might Paddy deal with the shock of potentially finding out he has an almost adult son he had no idea existed?
Hes that wet and dim it goes over his head, even after meeting him. He doesnt think anything, and I dont know what the plans are. I think they are parking it for now and dont even know themselves.
However, with Lisa seemingly open to exploring another future return, somehow we think that this is something that will have further consequences down the line…
