“Those scenes we shot in the salon were so beautiful,” adds Johnson. “The writers did a fantastic job of showing the emotion. Lisa was amazing; it really shows a different side to them as mother and son.

“The last thing Vinny wants is for Mandy to feel like she’s not his real mum, because she is all Vinny has ever known. Vinny wants to put it right and an idea springs into his mind,” he teases.

Will Mandy be able to forgive Vinny's betrayal? (ITV)

Riley adds that the friendship between Mandy and ex-husband Paddy (Dominic Brunt) will play a key role in these scenes.

“We’re going to be playing a lot of lovely stuff, and it’s Paddy who makes [Mandy] realise that actually when they were kids, and they were the same age, they were exactly the same as Liv and Vinny.”

You’ll have to wait and see whether Paddy’s words, along with Vinny's new plan, can persuade Mandy to repair her relationship with Vinny.

Emmerdale airs these scenes from Monday at the new time of 7:30pm.
