Paddy (played by Dominic Brunt) wasn’t pleased to hear Al (Michael Wildman) had offered to become an investor of the Emmerdale pub, with Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) and Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) considering the suggestion. Not knowing what else to do, Paddy turned to the ITV soap’s villainous Kim (Claire King), who made him a deal. She suggested she would help him out if he could do her a favour and dope her race horse, and he agreed. But this move could ruin things for his family when Chas finds out, and she could cut him off from their daughter, Eve.

When he approached Kim about the situation on Monday, she told Paddy: “I want my boy to be a champion so when the time comes I can make a small fortune.

“You could, how shall I put it, inject a bit of oomph into his performance.”

At first, Paddy said no because he didn’t want to do anything illegal or lose his licence.

“You could lose a lot more than that if you don’t,” Kim threatened.

She gave him time to think about it and by Tuesday’s instalment, he’d made his decision.

“I told you I wanted an answer this morning,” Kim commented when Paddy arrived to see her.

“Well excuse me for taking time over compromising my entire career,” he replied.

“I thought helping your wife’s business and keeping a roof over your head might have taken priority,” Kim said, increasing Paddy’s fears over losing everything.

He responded: “Thank you Kim, I am aware of my options.”

“You were the one who came to me with the problem. I’m merely offering a solution,” Kim answered.

She added: “I’m just getting the contracts drawn up for Al, so once he’s signed he’s free to invest in whatever he wants.”

“I’m here aren’t I? If the offer still stands,” Paddy said, as Kim teased: “It might do. All you have to do is say the word.”

“Okay, I’ll do it. I’ll do it – I’ll dope your flipping horse,” Paddy said.

But it’s likely he could be found out. Meeting Kim later, Paddy asked: “What if he doesn’t win?”

“He better,” Kim replied, adding: “You do know how much is riding on this?”

But the horse did win, and Kim ended up handing him the money, telling him: “We could make a lot of money together.”

Of course, Chas has no idea Paddy is risking his whole career to try to save the pub.

If she found out, she would probably find it hard to forgive him.

But it’s likely she will discover the truth somehow, and will be devastated by the betrayal.

Will she be angry enough to take full custody of Eve?

She was already furious when he went to help Kim and she had no idea where he was when the Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) ended up being injured.

“Where have you been? I tried to call you – I had to leave Eve with Aaron and Liv,” she said.

“I was on a call, there was no signal, sorry,” he lied.

Chas apologised for snapping at him, but said she isn’t sure how much more she can take.

With guilt likely to be eating away at Paddy over what he’s done, Chas might clock on to his suspicious behaviour.

Paddy told her he was working at the racecourse and now has enough money to put into the pub, promising there was “more to come”.

“That’s amazing,” Chas replied, relieved. But how long will Paddy’s secret remain under wraps?

He might end up keeping the pub but losing his family.

Emmerdale continues on Wednesday at 7pm on ITV.
