EMMERDALE fans have been left cringing after Chloe Harris made a pass at Mackenzie Boyd.

The new mum – who is played by actress Jessie Elland in the ITV soap – had a one night stand with Mack which resulted in their son Reuben.

Chloe misread the situation and leaned in for a kiss

Chloe apologised as Mack rejected her

In tonight’s episode the pair received some good news from the hospital.

The doctor told them while it was too early to know if his meningitis had affected him long-term, for now there was nothing to suggest he was anything other than a healthy baby boy.

But after their good news about Reuben, Chloe and Mack bonded.

And then it went very awkward.

“Thanks for coming today though,” Chloe said. 

“I don’t think I could’ve gone by myself, I would’ve just fallen to bits. Will you promise me something? That he’s not ever going to feel second best. 

“And that you won’t ditch him if you and Charity do get back together?”

“Of course, I promise,” replied Mackenzie.

Chloe told him: “Today turned out pretty good. You can see him tomorrow if you want.”

But as Mackenzie said he’d love that, Chloe misread the situation and leaned in for a kiss.

As he rejected her, she apologised, with Mack telling her: “It’s OK. It’s been a tough day. I should get going.”

The scenes left fans cringing.

One wrote: “Oh my god I can’t watch. That’s so embarrassing for Chloe.”

A second said: ” That’s got to kill!”

Another added: “Poor Chloe. That was so cringe-worthy though.”
