EMMERDALE fans are turning on Paddy Kirk after his treatment of estranged wife Chas Dingle.
The vet – who is played by actor Dominic Brunt in the ITV soap – has been left devastated by Chas cheating on him with murdered Al Chapman.
Tonight’s episode Paddy was still taking his rage out on Chas – and hurting others in the process

But while viewers had sympathy for Paddy after the shock betrayal, their patience is now wearing thin.
He has repeatedly tried to force Chas to leave the village and abandon her daughter Eve.
Last night it took her long-lost brother Caleb to give her a much-needed pep talk to stop her from abandoning Eve and leaving for good.
She decided to move back into her home – and tell Paddy to shove it.
And in tonight’s episode Paddy was still taking his rage out on Chas – and hurting others in the process.

Distracted by his hatred for Chas, Paddy issued too much anaesthetic and almost killed the pooch.
It was too much for Rhona, who gave him some stern words of advice – reminding him no doubt of how he cheated on her – before telling him to take a break from work.
And while he agreed, he still went home to snap at Chas more – and viewers have had enough.
One wrote: “Paddy giving Vinnie’s dog the wrong dose. I don’t think he should be at work until he sorts himself out.”
A second said: “You’d better not have hurt that dog Paddy, useless lump.”
Another added: “Dog murder Paddy.”
