Even though Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) isn’t Vinny (Bradley Johnson)’s birth mother in Emmerdale she’s brought him up since he was a baby and very much thinks of him as her son.
Family is, of course, massively important to the Dingles generally and to Mandy in particular. But family celebrations never come without drama, which is why when Vinny and Liv (Isobel Steele) decided to get married they also decided to elope and have a quiet, private ceremony. As Bradley Johnson told Metro.co.uk, ‘The Dingles being the Dingles, they always get involved, Mandy takes over… I feel like they want to go away, just the two of them, make it special, and not get overridden by Mandy and the Dingles.’
Mandy discovers that her boy has secretly been and got married in upcoming episodes, and she’s absolutely devastated that he would go and do that behind her back. The reveal comes when she opens an envelope addressed to ‘Mr and Mrs V. Dingle’ and discovers the marriage certificate.
When Vinny returns, Mandy vents all her anger and disappointment, saying that she sees his secret wedding as a betrayal of their entire relationship.
Vinny and Liv try to make things up with Mandy by inviting her to be the guest of honour at their wedding reception.
Will their olive branch manage to bring Mandy round? She does love a good party, after all. Or will the hurt take more time to heal?
