Emmerdale spoilers: Kidnap horror for groom-to-be Paul!

Paul gets a surprise in Emmerdale

Paul is banking on his wedding day being the end of his violent secrets – but the truth will soon be revealed...

Emmerdale villain Paul Ashdale is backed into a corner in Monday's episode on ITV from 7pm (see our TV Guide for full listings).

A huge week in Emmerdale is about to unfold which will involve stunts, flash-forwards and one villager left dead!

It's a big moment for Paul (Reece Dinsdale) and Mandy (Lisa Riley), who are set to wed.

Mandy's thrilled to bits with her leopard-print wedding dress, the barn is decked out for the ceremony – and groom Paul's hoping that putting a ring on it will mean an end to all his violent secrets.

But he's beaten up his son Vinny (Bradley Johnson) one time too many – and Liv (Isobel Steele) is determined to find out who's behind the unexplained attacks.

The problem is, Liv has got it all wrong. She thinks Paul's dodgy mate Connor (Danny Cunningham) is responsible, and her big brother Aaron (Danny Miller) has taken it upon himself to kidnap him!

Paul's horrified to see Connor has been kidnapped by Aaron. Connor knows all of Paul's terrible secrets but the Dingles don't… How will Paul talk his way out of this one?

Paul needs to think fast. Connor knows all his secrets and could spill the beans. Telling Aaron and co that he needs to 'deal with' Connor himself, Paul manages to get rid of everyone.

The Dingles are astonished when Connor then legs it out of the house – but Paul says he had to let him go as Connor knows someone 'on the inside' who could make things worse.

Suspicious Liv doesn't buy a word of it.
