EMMERDALE fans, the long awaited permanent return of Mandy Dingle and her son Vinny is happening TONIGHT.
Yep, she’s back for good this time and she’s bringing a whole lot of trouble with her. Here’s what to expect from the Dales icon…
Mandy catches Jessie cheating
Mandy arrives at the worst possible time for Jessie Dingle, who’s married to Mandy’s cousin Marlon. Jessie is busy catching up with her ex-husband, Al – and by catching up we mean snogging the face off – when Mandy comes barging in. Awkward.
Will Mandy blab to Marlon and possibly end his marriage?
Well, we know that Sandra Marvin who plays cheating Jessie is leaving the soap soon, so it looks like heartbreak is inevitable for poor Marlon.
Mandy and Vinny have a big secret
During their brief stint in the village earlier this year, Mandy dropped the bombshell on her ex-husband Paddy Kirk that the man he thought his dad, wasn’t actually his biological father.
But that wasn’t even the big reason they returned. As they were leaving, Vinny asked his mum why she hadn’t told the Dingles the real reason. Mandy replied that it wasn’t the right time. So what’s their secret?
Mandy’s been on the rob
We know from spoilers that Mandy will be caught out frantically searching for a bag by Chas. Chas is shocked to see the bag stuffed with cash and casino chips. But where has Mandy got all this cash from?
We also know that she’ll clash with Aaron Dingle when he says he’ll help her get the chips exchanged. But she’ll be horrified when he tells her he’s taking a cut for commission before ‘accidentally’ throwing the money into a burning bin at the scrap

She’ll clash with Robert
It’s not just Aaron who Mandy will be locking horns with. Actress Lisa Riley has confessed that Mandy is set for some big tensions with his husband, Robert Sugden.
Speaking to Digital Spy about who else Mandy might clash with, Lisa said: “Robert, massively. There’s no love lost between Mandy and
Robert at all.
“He recognises the schemer in her, but she recognises it in him also! With Mandy and Robert, it’s like, ‘Don’t kid a kidder’. They’re too alike. She sees through him and he certainly sees through her.”
Sadly it looks like this clash of the scheming titans will be short-lived as Ryan Hawley, who plays Robert, is bowing out of the ITV soap later this year.
