Emmerdale fans will remember that the news Mandy had fallen pregnant with Paul's baby when they were an item years ago was revealed during Mandy and Vinny's special lockdown double hander.

Paul discovers the truth 

Mandy has always kept her ex in the dark about the baby she lost, having never had the change to tell him about the pregnancy after he left her and Vinny years ago.

However, there is another twist heading for the family when Vinny goes through his dad's pocket to borrow some money, only to come across a betting slip.
