She pushes him to admit to himself he still wants to be a father

Could this result in problems in his relationship with Charity Dingle

Charity Dingle is heavily focused on making her nuptials fit her vision but she’s gutted to hear the venue for her hen do has been flooded in scenes airing next week on ITV.

A visit from Moira (portrayed by Natalie J. Robb) then leaves her newly responsible for both the hen party and Mack’s (Lawrence Robb) stag do but she’s also very sceptical of his choice for a best man.

When she spots Mackenzie interacting with a returning Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland), Moira grows suspicious of her brother.

Although she’s certain there’s more to their situation, she lets everything lie.

The following day, Charity (Emma Atkins) is getting nervous about Moira organising her hen party but the latter begins to question Mackenzie.

Soon enough, her questions lead to a difficult subject – is he really ready to give up on the chance of having a baby of his own?

Charity’s displeased to arrive home and to find Moira sowing doubts.

Things are still up in the air after Moira’s pointed comments.

To make matters worse for Mackenzie, his pals Ryan Stocks and Nate Robinson tell him they’re not able to come to his stag and he’s flustered it’s all falling apart.

At the Hide, Charity is unimpressed when Moira reveals the theme for the combined Stag and Hen do but there’s more disappointment ahead.

Moira continues to pressure Mack about choosing Charity over the chance to become a father.

It all becomes clear when a defiant Chloe decides to stay at the party, despite Mack’s wishes, and gets hurt as a result of a ferret race.

Mackenzie rushes to her aid before Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson) takes her wounded sister to the hospital.

Aware he could expose his own secrets, Mack knows he has to check himself from seemingly overly concerned.

Moira continues to stir the pot with Charity and Mack realises he has to say something.

Charity reels after he confesses Moira thinks he still wants to be a dad more than anything.

She then struggles to believe Mackenzie when he says there’s nothing in Moira’s claims and when Charity bolts for the exit, Mack says he’ll never forgive Moira if she’s ruined his relationship.

As viewers of the Yorkshire-based soap will remember, Mackenzie and Chloe had a one night stand and the young woman is pregnant with his child as a result.

However, only a handful of residents know about it all, which include Charity’s granddaughter Sarah Sugden.

Sarah encouraged Chloe to come with her to Scotland to visit her mother Debbie Dingle when she found out, in an attempt to allow Mackenzie and Charity to work on their relationship.

Next week, Chloe tells an awkward Mackenzie that she’s planning to move to Scotland permanently.

But could the truth come to light before she can leave the eponymous village?

Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
