Our hearts have already broken for Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) in Emmerdale – and to think he hasn’t even found out about Chas Dingle’s (Lucy Pargeter) affair yet!
We’ve been left wanting to give the beloved character a hug multiple times ever since Chas decided to completely betray him and have an affair with Al (Michael Wildman).
There was one particular moment that stood out for us – during Marlon (Mark Charnock) and Rhona’s (Zoe Henry) wedding.
As Chas slipped away to spend time with Al, a nervous Paddy was busy preparing his best man speech. He desperately wanted Chas there – but she was nowhere to be seen.
When she eventually returned, the lies were switched on. Chas told Paddy that she went out for a walk and all he was able to do was accept it.
Seriously, give Paddy another hug, right away.
Things between the couple are slightly different in the lead up to Christmas. Al is dead, Chas is trying to move on, and she chooses to do that by accepting Paddy’s wonderful and loving jewellery gift.
As Paddy promises it’ll be the best Christmas ever, we know his happiness will not last for much longer, as boss Jane Hudson has already confirmed the affair will soon be revealed:
‘We’ve got Paddy and Chas who are absolutely in their worst place because the affair has been discovered,’ she told Metro.co.uk.
‘They are forced to spend Christmas Day together and it does not go well.’
‘In 2023, we are also continuing things with Paddy and Chas and how you navigate being parents when your marriage is falling to pieces’, she teased.
‘It’s a very serious and heart-breaking story as we watch what happens to what were one of our favourite couples until we tore them apart!’
