Paul Ashdale is reeling when his ex, Mandy Dingle, accuses him of stealing cash from David's shop.....

Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) is hell bent on proving Paul Ashdale (Reece Dinsdale) can't be trusted in tonight's Emmerdale on at 7pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

Mandy who is coming off a bender over at the Dingles, catches Paul eyeing the envelope full of donations that shopkeeper David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) has collected for his ‘Find The Ball’ competition.

Later on, when David discovers that the charity collection has totally vanished, Mandy immediately assumes her ex has something to do with it.

However, it’s Mandy’s turn to feel sheepish when they return to the shop and David discovers that the cash was simply misplaced and was there all along.

Vinny is furious with his mum for accusing his dad of being a thief and warns Mandy not to make him choose between her and his father Paul.

Elsewhere, Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) returns from his trip but his mood quickly darkens when he discovers that Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper)  is back together with Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln).
