It’s been 17 years since Mandy was last in the Dales, and now the iconic Dingle, played by TV favourite
Lisa Riley, is making a fleeting visit in the
New Year. What’s more, we’re promised that she’ll be harbouring a huge secret.
Could Mandy, as fans have speculated, have a child with Paddy that the vet knows nothing about? And, if so, how will this affect his fragile relationship with Chas?
‘Mandy certainly ruffles a few feathers during her short
stint back in the village,’ reveals show producer Kate Brooks, ‘and she clearly hasn’t lost any of the joie de vivre that made her so popular and enjoyable to watch.’
