Emmerdale's Mandy Dingle goes on the attack when Nicola badmouths her and Vinny in Friday's episode (ITV, 7.00pm see our TV Guide for full listings).
A classic Emmerdale catfight, food fight, face-off… call it what you will… kicks off when Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) overhears Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) criticising her and her beloved Vinny!
With the two women at war over the kiss Jimmy planted on Mandy, which was the death knell for his rocky marriage to Nicola, the tension has been brewing for a while.
The scene is set at Angel King's birthday at the Hide. But when Mandy pops in to buy a hot chocolate, she hears bitter Nicola going in on her to her dad Rodney (Patrick Mower).
With her nose already put out of joint by Nicola – who has refused to believe that the single Dingle has always had her best interests at heart and has been trying to persuade Jimmy to fight for their marriage – Mandy snaps.
Grabbing the nearest thing she can find, Mandy tonks Nicola over the head with it!
Soon a full blown fight erupts as the two mums forget that it's Angel's birthday and go at each other with both barrels!
Nicola's dad Rodney gets drenched as his daughter wields a water-filled gun and soaks Mandy!
Poor Angel's left without any birthday cake as Mandy plants Nicola's face into a cream-filled fancy - to which Nicola responds by doing the same!
The party is an absolute shambles and to top it off, a bitter bombshell is about to hit the troubled King parents when Juliette (Amelia Curtis), Carl's birth mum, turns up with some news.
Elsewhere, Sarah Sugden needs to decide what she's going to do with the information her grandad Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) has given her about her donor family.
