Emmerdale spoilers! Mandy Dingle in getaway drama! Will she escape the furious Dingles?

Mandy and Vinny decide to make a run for it in Emmerdale

Mandy Dingle and her son Vinny make a run for it after Lydia Hart catches them trying to steal money from her bank account

Emmerdale's Mandy Dingle goes on the run after being caught trying to fleece Lydia in Monday's episode at 7pm (see our TV guide for full listings).

With casino boss Terry breathing down her neck wanting his cash back, Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) is up against it. But luckily her latest get-rich-quick scheme is just about to pay off.

Having scammed a solicitor into thinking she is Lydia, Mandy's about to run off with the windfall the lawyer has bought her way.

But as Mandy and her son Vinny (Bradley Johnson) are hacking into Lydia's account to transfer the money, they're caught - by Lydia (Karen Blick)!

Head of the family Zak (Steve Halliwell) is livid. Mandy has been given too many chances lately and has gone against the family code time and time again. Zak decides it's time for Mandy and Vinny to face a Dingle court.

As the mother and son duo await their trial, Mandy forces reluctant Vinny to make a run for it…

Will they make a success of their getaway?
