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.
