Emmerdale's Mackenzie Boyd's mystery lover is finally exposed in Wednesday's episode (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

Mackenzie Boyd is fighting fires at the moment. If he could turn back time he never would have cheated on his girlfriend, Charity Dingle, after their huge, hurtful row about trying for kids. But he did and he’s desperate to stop her finding out.

With his housemates Nate and Ryan, who’s Charity’s son, in the know it’s getting harder and harder to stay on top of the secret. But worse of all his mystery lover keeps getting in touch!

Mack’s really frustrated when he gets yet another call from her and in a bid to stop her hassling him he arranges to see her hoping to, er, put it to bed.

As they meet on the outskirts we finally get to find out who he slept with…
