It's no secret that the pair have been to hell and back over recent years after losing their baby daughter, Grace, shortly after she was born.

Since then they have gone on to welcome Eve into the world, but things have never been the same between them and now the cracks are really starting to show.

The end of the line?

Tonight's Emmerdale saw the pair confronting their issues after Paddy spent the night at Mandy's.

Chas was worried that she had pushed Paddy back into the arms of his ex, but instead he just spent the night at the Dingles' venting about his relationship dramas.

But when they finally sat down to talk tonight, things didn't go to plan and they were soon arguing once again.

Paddy's home truths...

When Chas finally tracked Paddy down in the village, they seemed to be making amends, until Paddy admitted that he couldn't imagine growing old with Chas.

As Chas and Paddy's relationship seemed to be over for good, fans have been left torn.

Some believe the pair are made for one another...
