PADDY Kirk is adamant on ending his marriage with Chas Dingle after finding out she cheated on him.

However, he soon feels isolated from his own family in Emmerdale when she makes a shocking move.

Paddy Kirk found out his wife Chas cheated on him

She’s been trying to make amends with her family

Chas was exposed for her illicit romance by Belle Dingle

The Woolpack bar manager portrayed by Lucy Pargeter was recently exposed for her illicit romance with Al Chapman.

This created a rift between her and the rest of her clan as Paddy Kirk (played by Dominic Brunt) was unable to forgive her.

Chas was notably given a hard time by Belle and Mandy Dingle for her affair during the festive period.

But the feud could finally be resolved in upcoming scenes of the Yorkshire-based drama.

Chas decides to trigger a reconciliation when Mandy (Lisa Riley) suggests throwing a Dingle bash with the out-of-date beer.

The family members later pile into the bar and Chas jumps on the opportunity to make amends with everyone.

She’s taken aback to see an awkward Paddy make his way into the pub.

The vet surgeon’s unease only gets worse as his wife builds bridges with her family members.

Feeling excluded, a gutted Paddy decides to quietly slip off to the backroom while his good pal Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) is occupied at the buffet.

Isolated from his once-extended family, he listens to them having fun as Mandy starts testing a karaoke mic to keep the party going.

Later on, Paddy’s bad mood seemingly has an impact on how he interacts with his daughter Eve.

His father Bear (Joshua Richards) grows increasingly concerned about him withdrawing from Eve which prompts Vinny Dingle (Bradley Johnson) to talk to him.

Will Vinny be able to talk some sense into Paddy?

While that remains to be seen, he recently pressured Chas to leave the eponymous village only for her to insist she wouldn’t be moving away from their daughter anytime soon.

Could Paddy decide to leave the Dales instead?

Chas was not only shunned for breaking Paddy’s heart but also for unwillingly sending her brother Cain to prison.

The tough man was thrown behind bars after it appeared he killed Al Chapman during a confrontation which followed him finding out about Chas’ affair.

But as the police and viewers know, Cain was only taking the blame for his son Kyle.

Emmerdale airs from Monday to Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
