Emmerdale's Mackenzie Boyd takes Charity's nasty words to heart in Thursday's episode (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

When Charity Dingle was forced to terminate her pregnancy, her younger man boyfriend Mackenzie was gutted. 

It's been a tricky time for the couple so Mack has decided that a wellness day at the Hide is just what the doctor ordered. 

The wannabe dad is also hoping to find the right moment to tell Charity he'd love to try again when she's ready.

Expecting spa treatments, Charity and Mack are bemused to find they're taking part in a meditation session and find themselves unable to take it seriously.

Sneaking off, the pair end up in the woods where laughter leads to passion.

Charity's worried as it's the first time they've got intimate since the procedure.

With his girlfriend having bought up the topic, which has seemed off-limits till now, Mack clumsily seizes his chance to talk about trying for kids.

He quickly realises his mistake…

As Charity explodes at his insensitivity, in anger she tells him that if he wants to have children he's going to have to look elsewhere.

Later, after a chat with Mack's sister Moira, Charity calms down and is ready to talk to Mack. But he's busy elsewhere… with another woman!

Who's he slept with? Wellness worker Belle? Single mum Gabby? Nate's ex-fling Chloe? Much older woman Wendy?

At the cafe, Naomi is introduced to Nicola who's keen to get to know the newbie.
