Emmerdale revealed a first look at Vinny Dingle, meeting his long-lost father. Vinny (Bradley Johnson) is coming face to face with newcomer Paul next week, but he’s initially oblivious to his real identity.
Upcoming episodes see Paul start working at the local scrapyard after realizing that Vinny lives nearby. This comes despite the lies of Mandy Dingle, who told him that Vinny had moved away.
Paul and Vinny have an amicable introduction, but Vinny has no idea that this new arrival is the father he hasn’t seen for years.
Meanwhile, Mandy confides in Lydia (Karen Blick) about she wants Paul to keep his distance. In her heart-to-heart relationship with Lydia, Mandy shares the story of her relationship with Paul.
Mandy’s adamant that she’s doing the right thing by blocking Paul’s efforts to reunite with Vinny, but will Lydia agree? How is Mandy going to feel as she realizes that Paul has bagged himself a job in the village against her wishes?
Recent Coronation Street actor Reece Dinsdale, who plays Paul, recently promised that viewers would discover the reason that his character abandoned his son all those years before.
Lisa Riley, who plays Mandy, added: “Lydia starts to say, ‘People change Mandy…’ And Mandy goes on, ‘You don’t know him, you don’t know him as I do.’”
