THE Dingles have grown accustomed to sparks flying even within their own clan.

When Matty Barton makes a shock confession, all hell breaks loose again in Emmerdale.

Matty is shocked when Amy spontaneously proposes to him next week

He soon makes a shocking confession to his mother Moira

What if the proposal was part of Amy’s plan to keep Kyle away from his father Cain?

Moira Dingle (portrayed by Natalie J. Robb) is delighted when her son Matty (Ash Palmisciano) tells her his girlfriend Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson) spontaneously proposed.

The couple have been put through the wringer in recent weeks, particularly due to Amy’s son Kyle confessing to the murder of Al Chapman.

Matty appears uneasy and Moira can’t help but notice his surprising mood at the thought of marrying Amy.

This prompts the Hide Bistro barista to confess to her his fear that Amy’s proposal was part her plan to get full custody of Kyle.

Moira is incensed by Amy’s intentions but, in later scenes, she finds herself having to calm her husband Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) down as the hot-tempered villager bangs on Amy’s door, ready to shout the odds over her plan.

Matty may be right to doubt Amy’s intentions.

In scenes prior to this, he fails to hide his inner conflict when he asks Amy if getting sole custody of Kyle is the best thing for the child.

Following the young boy’s involvement in Al Chapman’s shocking death, Amy has grown increasingly convinced that his father Cain is a bad influence on him and she’s determined to keep the two separate.

Cain does have a reputation of getting himself into explosive feuds that often include violence as he’s never afraid to throw punches.

Amy ignores Matty’s attempt to reason with her and tries to remain strong for her son ahead of his hearing.

Cain, on the other hand, feels powerless and takes action the only way he knows how – with a display of strength.

He strong arms his way into Keepers to see Kyle, leaving Amy seething at his intrusion.

Fortunately for him, his half-brother Caleb Milligan (Will Ash) recognises how important it is for Cain and Kyle to have a moment together and he persuades Amy to relent.

Later on, members of the family are left on tenterhooks as Kyle’s solicitor phones with big news for the lad.

What could it be?

Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
