Emmerdale's Paddy Kirk is a good egg in Monday's episode (ITV, 7.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings).

With Marlon still in hospital following his stroke, anything that can put a smile on his face is a good thing. 

So when his best mate Paddy sorts out an Easter egg hunt for the kids and arranges for Marlon to be involved via video, Rhona's really grateful for the cheery surprise. 

Is the homesick dad going to be stuck in hospital for much longer?

Elsewhere, Chas has noticed how much time Belle is spending with Al now they're in partnership together, pushing her wellness retreat idea. 

Knowing from past experience how devious Al can be, let alone how flirty, and not forgetting the simmering feud between him and her brother Cain, Chas warns her to watch herself. 

Given that Al is going out with Kerry and is Belle's ex Ellis' dad, she should pretty safe with him… right?


Belle is fleshing out a wellness business idea, and Al has jumped on her bandwagon. But is the ruthless ladies-man to be trusted? Based on past experience with Al, Chas certainly doesn't think so. Is her warning warranted? (Image credit: ITV)
