Charity Dingle (played by Emma Atkins) is not exactly happy that her son Ryan Stocks (James Moore) is in a house share with dodgy dealer Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) on Emmerdale (ITV, 7.00pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Charity knows all about the kind of illegal dealings Mackenzie has been involved in, since she has often been in partner-in-crime!

However, after all that business involving the disappearance of the stolen smart watches, Charity is now worried that Mackenzie is getting Ryan involved in his life of crime.

Ryan doesn't mind a bit of ducking and diving, especially if there's a bit of money to be made.

After all, he is a Dingle!

"I think there is a part of Ryan that will always get involved in some shady stuff- that’s the Dingle side coming out," says James Moore who plays Ryan. "But he’s also very moralistic and always prepared to set people straight. So it could go either way."

But he could be getting in over his head by falling under the influence of Mackenzie?

Charity is worried about what is going on.

So she stomps over to Tall Trees Cottage to confront Mackenzie about WHAT he is up to.

Charity warns Mackenzie to leave Ryan out of his illegal dealings.

"There is definitely that mischievous streak in Ryan that’s reminiscent of Charity," continues James. "As much as she wants to protect him, he is her son, and she knows what that entails and it’s worrying for her."

But is there already a whole lot more going on than Charity realises?

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!"
