Paddy and Marlon’s mission Emmerdale
A DATE FIRST! They have A bet on Who CAN GET AND MARLON Thinks he’s WON…
Story So FAR
Marlon Dingle and Paddy Kirk have both had disastrous love affairs, often with the same woman!
With Marlon not getting any action since Carly waltzed out of the village (and onto the Strictly dance floor!) and Rhona insisting her relationship with Paddy is dead, the best mates are on the shelf with only each other for company.
So they decide it’s high time to get themselves back on the dating scene. Lock up your daughters!
Downloading a dating app in the hope of attracting some romantic attention, the pals’ search for love descends into a bitter rivalry!
‘They are both single and decide to try dating apps,’ reveals Paddy actor Dominic Brunt. ‘It’s a one-upmanship thing. Marlon says, ‘I’ve had 15 swipes!’ Paddy lies and says he has, too, which is quite tragic! It’s pure jealousy…’
After Marlon tries to set his BFF up with Bernice, Paddy is put out at being pitied – so the pair place a bet on who can get a proper date first.
Smug Marlon bags an attractivelooking woman called Lindsey, but their date is a disaster and she walks out.
Later catching Paddy’s eye, Lindsey gives him her number – putting the vexed vet in a tricky position… Should he break the ‘guy code’ and steal Marlon’s girl?
If Lindsey doesn’t run for the hills we’d be very surprised, so expect Marlon and Paddy’s quest for romance to continue.
So which women might Emmerdale’s eligible bachelors stand a chance with?
Marlon’s already tried setting Paddy up with Bernice. Leyla and Priya are both single since the Pete debacle, but would appear to be way out of the lads’ league. And after her experience with two-timing Frank, Megan’s sworn off men.
Why don’t Marlon and Paddy just give up and settle down together?! They would make a great couple!
Smug Marlon pulls Lindsey, but she ends up preferring his mate, instead! Who will get the girl? Paddy’s single and ready to mingle, but he’s not impressed when he’s set up with Bernice!
