The pair had a one night stand

Chloe is pregnant with Mackenzie’s child

The heartthrob portrayed by Lawrence Robb had a one night stand with Chloe Harris after arguing with his partner, Charity Dingle about their plans for the future.

This tense discussion followed a heart-breaking ectopic pregnancy storyline which ended when the Woolpack landlady decided to terminate her pregnancy.

Despite this, Mackenzie was determined to build a family with but Charity refused to have any more children.

Weeks later, he found out he wouldn’t have to miss out on fatherhood after all when Chloe (Jessie Elland) revealed to him she was pregnant and keeping her baby.

But due to his relationship with Charity and their nuptials, Mackenzie has refused to be involved in the baby’s life and is keeping everything under wraps with the help of Chloe and Sarah Sugden (Katie Hill).

Next week on ITV, however, his friend Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) gets a hunch he cares more for Chloe and the baby than he lets on.

Mackenzie is rattled by this and secretly wonders if Nate could be right.

He has no other choice but to face reality in later scenes of the Yorkshire-based drama when he bumps into Chloe and she tells him she’s expecting a boy.

Reality sinks in even further when the baby starts to kick and the pair share a charged moments as Mackenzie feels the kicking.

The following day, Mackenzie’s struggle increases although he desperately tries to hide it.

Soon enough, him and Chloe argue over his involvement in the baby’s life, but Nate is not convinced by Mack’s denial over being a father to the baby.

Meanwhile, Charity (Emma Atkins) is trying to support and comfort her struggling son Noah who is being blackmailed by his own cousin Samson.

Mack is present for the pair but feels even more guilty with the knowledge he’s deceiving Charity.

Will he ever come clean to her?
