Emmerdale spoilers! Lydia Hart helps Mandy Dingle on a money scam!

Vinny, Lydia and Sam catch Mandy trying to break into the office in Emmerdale

As Lydia Hart and Sam Dingle join Mandy at a break-in will they find out who left Lydia a ton of money?

Emmerdale's Lydia Hart gets dragged into Mandy Dingle's drama in the first of Thursday's episodes on ITV at 7pm (see our TV Guide for full listings).

In the cafe Lydia Hart (Karen Blick) and Sam (James Hooton) are horrified when Vinny (Bradley Johnson) comes to tell them that guilt-ridden Mandy (Lisa Riley) has gone off to break into the solicitor's office!

Though the couple are desperate to know who bequeathed such a huge lump of cash to Lydia – which Mandy went all out to steal by trying to convince said lawyer she was Sam's fiancee – the dodgy Dingle is going too far.

Mandy's stunned when they all turn up at the office but she's not put off and before long Lydia and co are roped in!

Posing as health and safety inspectors in hi-vis garb, Mandy, Lydia et al gain entry but as they're raking through the drawers to find the info Lydia needs, a guard turns up… Will they find out who's left Lydia all that cash?
