Can Paddy move on?

After a falling-out with Paddy, Marlon cancels his planned birthday celebrations.

However, Mary is excited to introduce the new woman in her life to Rhona, despite the cancelled party.

Later at the pub, Mandy suggests to Paddy that he should make amends with Marlon, while Mary enjoys a date with Faye.

Eventually, Paddy visits Marlon to apologise and they express their gratitude for each other’s friendship.

The next day, Rhona trusts that Paddy is ready to return to work, and he manages to have a civil conversation with Chas about breaking the news to Eve that he is moving out.

Liam invites Paddy to move in with him, but the situation becomes complicated when Bear unexpectedly moves in too.

Despite the support of his friends, Paddy continues to struggle.

Also in the Dales, Moira has a big question for her brother Mack about a baby.

After watching Chloe and Mack interact, Moira’s sure there’s more to this situation.

Moira has some questions for Mack –  is he really sure he wants to give up the chance to have a baby of his own?

She continues to pressure Mack about choosing Charity over the chance to have a child.

Chloe’s defiant when Mack tells her not to stay long at the party. When Charity injures Chloe whilst celebrating the result of a ferret race, Mack rushes to her aid.

And Amy takes winded Chloe to the hospital, Mack has to check himself from seeming overly concerned.

With Moira continuing to stir things up with Charity, Mack knows he has to say something; Charity reels after he confesses Moira thinks he still wants to be a dad more than anything.

Charity 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 this relationship for him.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV1.
