Emmerdale 's Vinny arrived in the Dales with Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) earlier this year as she returned to see her family.
Emmerdale spoilers have now revealed that Vinny isn't actually Mandy's son, and is hiding his real identity.
Viewers were originally convinced that Vinny was the secret love child of Mandy and Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt), who were previously married.
But it looks like Vinny isn't related to the Dingles at all, and is actually hiding his real identity.
Lisa told The Sun Online: "Who is he? Even I’m yet to find that out – it’s all still to unfold.

"But Vinny just wants to be part of the family and although the audience finds out that he’s not Mandy’s son, the Dingles never do – Mandy makes sure of that.
"Who is his mother? That’s the big question – will it be a cast member, we just don’t know."
Could Vinny be secretly related to another cast member?
A source also told the publication that while viewers will find out the truth, the rest of the Dingles will have to wait to find out.
Meanwhile, the pair will also be revealed to be running an illegal casino card-counting scam to swindle money out of punters.
As Mandy is told she has to explain herself to the Dingles, she and Vinny decide to make a run for it.

But as their van breaks down, they're caught and are taken back to the Dales to deal with the family.
They're also facing danger from casino boss Terry, who they have stolen money from in a previous scam.
Lisa added to The Sun: "Psycho Terry wants his money back. He bursts into the house and Mandy is in real danger."
Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
