Mandy Dingle has to think fast to avoid Lydia Hart from finding out she's stolen her huge cash windfall

Emmerdale's Lydia Hart has been robbed by Mandy Dingle but is her crime about to be exposed in the second of Thursdays visits to the Dales? (See our TV Guide for full listings.)

Sam Dingle's fiancee Lydia (Karen Blick) may be the sweetest of the crazy clan - and the most honest but she's no pushover. Underneath the apron and the cardi, Lydia's strong and true.

With her and Sam (James Hooton) planning a wedding, the couple need cash but are unaware an unexpected windfall meant for Lydia is being snatched from under their noses by dodgy Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley).

But are Mandy and her side-kick son Vinny (Bradley Johnson) about to get found out?

When Mandy receives a phone call from the solicitor – who she's fooled into thinking she's Lydia – she panics. With people knocking about at Wishing Well, the coast is far from clear. As she tries to sort the situation, Lydia picks up on Mandy's mayhem and starts to get suspicious about what she's up to… Are Mandy and Vinny about to come unstuck?

Over at The Woolie, it's all joy and happiness as new parents Chas (Lucy Pargeter) and Paddy (Dominic Brunt) decide on a name for their beautiful brand new baby.
