Emmerdale viewers were disgusted by Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) and Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) last night (Thursday, June 23) after the pair shared a passionate kiss, despite Chas being married to Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt).

Recently in Emmerdale, Chas has been struggling to cope with the discovery that her mum, Faith (Sally Dexter) has terminal cancer.

Last night’s episode saw Chas and Faith have an emotional heart-to-heart and Chas slowly coming round to the devastating news.

However, her grief turned into anger when she came across a hospice leaflet Paddy had hidden in his bag.

Paddy gently told her that at some point she might need to look into palliative care for when Faith needs it.

But, Chas was furious with Paddy’s helpful words and stormed out before he could say anymore.

As Chas showed up at The Hide wanting to talk to Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) about the wellness retreat, she came across Al who offered to book her in at some point.

Before Chas could leave, Al stopped her and asked if she had taken his advice from earlier and spoke to her mum openly about the diagnosis.

Chas’ emotions soon boiled over and she let out her anger over Paddy’s actions to Al, who told her that she had taken Paddy’s gesture the wrong way and that he just wanted to help.

She then dished out some harsh words to Al, but she calmed down when Al offered to be a friend.

Chas then opened up to Al about Faith and how much she loves her, despite leaving her as a child.

The pair continued to bond over a bottle of wine, but passion soon got in the way and they kissed.

Fans criticised the pair’s behaviour on social media and felt sorry for poor Paddy…
