Emmerdale spoilers follow.
Emmerdale's Paul Ashdale risks betraying his own secret tonight (March 22) as he's visibly unhappy over a police visit to his son Vinny Dingle.
Paul (Reece Dinsdale) has been violently lashing out at Vinny for the past few months. In upsetting scenes last week, the latest incident left Vinny requiring emergency hospital treatment.
In Monday's episode, Paul pays a visit to Mill Cottage to pick up some things for Vinny (Bradley Johnson), who's still in hospital.
Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) explains that his sister Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) is already at the hospital and has called the police to report Vinny's attack.
Paul is immediately consumed with fear on two fronts – wondering what Vinny might say to Liv and to the police. He's quick to rush to be at Vinny's bedside in order to exert his influence.
Later, when PC Swirling arrives, Vinny seriously considers telling him the truth about Paul.
However, when Paul arrives just at the right moment, Vinny immediately clams up and sticks to the story that he can't remember anything.
Once Swirling has gone, an angry Paul gives Liv a hard time for calling the police in the first place.
Liv is baffled by this attitude, wondering why Paul wouldn't want the police involved in such a serious attack on Vinny.
This strange moment marks the beginning of some detective work for Liv, as she becomes increasingly determined to find out the truth. Will she be the first to rumble Paul?
Emmerdale airs tonight at 7pm on ITV.
