Chas Dingle and Paddy Kirk, who were a former couple on Emmerdale, divorced earlier this year, but could Chas still harbor feelings for her ex?
In upcoming episodes of the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, Chas (played by Lucy Pargeter) will have a difficult week.
Viewers will recall that last year, after she had an affair with Al Chapman (Michael Wildman), Chas and Paddy (Dominic Brunt) divorced.
Paddy found out about his wife’s infidelity only after Al passed away, at which point he decided to dissolve their marriage.
Following their reconciliation, Paddy and Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) appear to be getting along well.
According to ITV’s official spoilers, Chas experiences feelings of resentment and inadequacy as she, Paddy, and Mandy have a crucial conversation with their daughter Eve.
The only reason Chas and Paddy are putting on a united front is so that the parents can tell their young daughter that Paddy is now content with Mandy.
Bear (Joshua Richards) joins the group as they discuss how serious Paddy and Mandy’s relationship has become in an open discussion.
Even though Chas makes an effort to put on a brave face for their daughter, it is obvious that she is resentful of Paddy for moving on and being content without her.
Later on in the week, Marlon (Mark Charnock) recognizes Chas’s distress and offers to help.
In addition to being a good mother, Marlon assures his cousin that Eve will always love her.
Perhaps Chas still harbors unresolved feelings for Paddy. Or is she merely having trouble because she no longer has anyone to rely on?
Could Chas’s resentment lead to the dissolution of her family?
Tom (James Chase) is devastated when Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper) tells him that she can’t move in with him just yet in another scene from The Dales.
He had hoped that moving in together would solidify his relationship with his girlfriend, but Belle’s confession puts an end to any chance of that.
Tom is in shock and doubts that they will ever be able to be together again. Could the young couple be on the verge of divorcing after having numerous arguments in recent weeks? Will Tom betray Belle, or what?
