The identity of Mandy Dingle’s son’s father has been revealed on Emmerdale.

Most viewers were completely convinced Paddy Kirk was Vinnie’s dad after spotting some striking similarities between the pair.

There were more signs tonight that Paddy is the daddy when he met young Vinnie for the first time.

The bumbling pair are both awkward, look alike and have a passion for animals.

However, Mandy was forced to come clean and reveal who Vinnie’s father is – and it’s not Paddy.
