Chas Dingle and Paddy Kirk haven’t quite had the easiest time of it in Emmerdale recently.
But all that is about to change as Chas (Lucy Pargeter) gives birth to a baby with the vet (Dominic Brunt).
However, speaking to Metro.co.uk, producer Kate Brooks revealed the whole thing doesn’t quite go as smoothly as you’d think.
Well, this is the Dales after all…
‘We do every so often have happiness and this comes in the form of a new little Dingle. Paddy and Chas will have their baby in a happy and joyous occasion,’ she told us.
‘This being a soap, it doesn’t all go smoothly – there will be comedy and japes. It’ll bring a new lease of life for the family as there is a lot of darkness around them at the moment. It injects new life into them and will be lovely to watch.
‘After the heartbreaking story we had for Paddy and Chas last year, this will be a very welcome addition to the family.’
The couple have endured more than their fair share of devastation after they were reunited at the end of 2017.
Last year, viewers were left in tears when they welcomed daughter Grace, only for the newborn to be diagnosed with bilateral renal agenesis, and tragically died at the end of the episode.
But Paddy might need to prepare himself for more mayhem as it was revealed ex Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) is on her way back to Emmerdale, with son Vinny.
The actress confirmed the news on social media, telling her Instagram fans: ‘YES YES YES!!! I am seriously overjoyed to FINALLY confirm to you all, I will be returning to @itv @emmerdale it’s 100% THE TRUTH!!!
‘Back on your screens mid-September, Mandy’s back with her son Vinny, she is going to make you laugh, and I’m very sure the writers will be adding some “Mandy Mischief” along the way for good measure. The biggest excitement for me personally is being back with all my old friends, who I love like REAL FAMILY….
‘I want to REALLY thank you ALL for you endless support and gorgeousness regarding my return, I’m very you are not going to be let down. EXCITING TIMES AHEAD.’
During her last visit, she appeared to be holding something back from the new dad – with one secret being that his real dad is still out there – but what other drama will she be bringing?
