Mandy Dingle will be up to her old tricks once again in Emmerdale next week.
The schemer has been pulling all sorts of scams since she recently returned to the village, but her manipulative ways caught up with her recently when Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) took all of her money for himself and Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley).
Next week will see Mandy (Lisa Riley) hatching yet another plot to get rich, this time involving Lydia Hart (Karen Blick).
Mandy will see an opportunity when Vinny Dingle (Bradley Johnson) tells her that there is a £5,000 grand prize for the project he’s currently assisting Sam Dingle (James Hooton) with.
Later, Mandy conveniently invites a solicitor to Wishing Well who informs her that Lydia Hart recently inherited a large sum of money – so, of course, Mandy assumes Lydia’s identity to get her hands on the cash.
Mandy turns up the charm, going as far as flirting with the solicitor to fool him into giving her the money without the proper vetting, but she’s interrupted when the real Lydia and Sam arrive.
Although the two are oblivious to what is going on, Mandy actually starts to feel guilty about the con she’s trying to pull. Is this crisis of conscience enough to convince her to stop the lying before going too far?
Fans have also been predicting that Mandy could cause trouble in Paddy Kirk and Chas Dingle’s relationship, with Lisa Riley recently offering her own thoughts on the intriguing dynamic.
Emmerdale currently airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
