Emmerdale character to die in "ambitious" storyline

Emmerdale character to die in
An Emmerdale character will be killed off as part of a major new storyline, it is revealed.

An Emmerdale character will die as part of an upcoming storyline, it has been revealed.

The plans for a death were revealed by the soap's series producer Laura Shaw during a press day on Tuesday as she teased an "epic" and "ambitious" exit for a mystery character.

Talking about storylines playing out over the next few months, she told reporters: "We've made no secret that our Mandy, Paul, Vinny storyline is going to feature heavily going into 2021 and I think we've already seen Paul's appalling behaviour has just got worse and worse.

"We're just going to see more of that in the coming weeks as Paul's gambling just gets out of hand and he's going to be pushed to extreme measures to try and hide his problem. Meanwhile, as Paul becomes better at hiding what's really going on, Mandy falls more and more in love with him which ultimately leads to a marriage proposal and a big old Dingle wedding is planned.

"But will Mandy and Paul really get their happily ever after? Or will Vinny finally be honest about the abuse that Paul is subjecting him to?"

"I think what we have planned is undoubtedly our most ambitious work since the dreaded COVID hit us. And it's challenging, to say the least!

"But I know already it's going to be epic and truly rewarding for our fans who love it when we go big. I can't say much more than that, I don't think, but what I can tell you is that ultimately, this story will end in tragedy for one of our characters, but the question is who?"

She continued: "There's also an upsetting time on the horizon for Jimmy and Nicola, who are going to cross over into the Mandy and Paul storyline in quite a shocking way. The audience will see that Jimmy and Nicola are being secretly watched and the couple are going to be frantic when Carl goes missing - who's taken him?

"What starts off as a relatively small thing will turn into the biggest test we've seen of their marriage and their whole family, really. With betrayals of trust on both sides, it leads to lives being changed forever."

Emmerdale continues weeknights on ITV.
