ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM



As Emily (Kate McGregor) and Paul head off to a gig, a lonely Viv (Deena Payne) is forced to ask Paddy (Dominic Brunt) for help when her hairdryer blows a fuse and all her electricity goes off. As Paddy offers his assistance, they forget their angry exchange from the previous night and unable to resist temptation any longer they share a passionate kiss.

Elsewhere, a determined Matthew (Matt Healy) discovers what Jimmy (Nick Miles) is up to when he manages to get his hands on a business quote. Matthew later assures an uneasy Carl (Tom Lister) that their brother will get his comeuppance.

Over at the Dingles’, Cain’s (Jeff Hordley) lies catch up with him when Zak (Steve Halliwell) discovers a stash of cash in his caravan. Furious that Cain refuses to contribute to the family pot, Zak forces him to tell Debbie (Charley Webb) that it’s the money he got from Sadie (Patsy Kensit) to betray Charity (Emma Atkins). Feeling appalled, Debbie makes it clear that she never wants to see her father again.

ITV Update

Succumbing to the inevitable Monday 28th Mar

PLEASE NOTE All Opinions expressed and any errors in this update are those of the ITV visual updater and not of this site's or necessarily ITV's or Emmerdale's.

Emily is off with Paul for the evening as she drives him to another gig. Alarmed at the thought of being on his own after the previous day’s occurrences, Paddy asks her if she can stay. Ironically, Emily tells him to ask Viv over for a drink to keep him company! If only you knew...

Observant Paul sees the opportunity for he and Emily to have a chat about her relationship with the vet. After hearing that she married Butch on his death bed, Paul puts two and two together and asks her if Paddy was her first proper lover. Emily shirks and Paul apologises for going too far.

But he can’t stop himself there and, wearing his sexy dress for the gig, he tells her that the key to a long-lasting and fulfilling relationship is sex. Emily recoils once again indicating to Paul that she and Paddy hardly ever ‘do it’. He is appalled and tells her that she’s too young to just make do with life. But she insists that she’s perfectly happy with her ‘companionable’ marriage and doesn’t need sex in her life. Paul can’t believe it and asks that she thinks about what she wants out of life.

Hubby Paddy meanwhile, has been called in by Viv to mend her electrics after she blew the fuse with the hairdryer that the vet supposedly fixed last week. It was a reluctant decision to contact him given their insults the previous day, but there was no one else around to help.

The vet is also reluctant to go round but, donning glasses he heads round their with his package, of tools that is. After initial bickering the two apologise for their comments the previous day. Paddy apologises for one in particular, ‘I’m sorry I said that you bought that rabbit so that you could talk to me more.’ ‘Oh no, that was true.’ Viv tells him!

There’s a moment's silence as they stare at each other and then Paddy grabs the post mistress and gives her a passionate snog! Goodness knows where it would have led, but thankfully for us Donna walks in and interrupts them. Paddy makes a bumbling exit as normal and Donna is left wondering what’s wrong with the strange vet. Viv on the other hand is looking rather flushed…

Elsewhere in the village today and Carl continues to get rid of every trace of Chloe in the house. He even dumps dog, Fenella, on brother Max. ‘Every time I look at her she reminds me of Chloe,’ he tells the young vet. ‘Yeah, I see what you mean,’ he replies! Cheeky blighter!

Matthew drives Carl home and waits while he goes to the toilet. Spotting Jimmy’s laptop on the table Matthew can’t resist taking a look at what Jimmy’s been up to the last few days. And sure enough, there’s a quotation ready to be sent out. Matthew prints it off and is clearly going to try and outbid his brother. He’s a cool cookie isn’t he?!

Meanwhile, Cain has taken yet more food out of the Dingle fridge, so Zak marches over to the caravan, but finding Cain is not there he has a snoop around. To his horror he finds several wads of cash! On his return Zak confronts the liar and asks him how he could have watched his own daughter give her money the previous day when he had all that stashed away?

Zak forces him to give the money to Debbie, but she asks him where he got it from. He tells her it’s the money he has left over from what Sadie paid him to set up Charity. Debbie is furious and tells him she never wants to see him again (again).
