The next day Paul is surprised to see Mandy rather than Vinny. And soon they are at each other's throats as she implores him to stay away. Later, Paul barges into Wishing Well Cottage to talk to Mandy, but both of their hearts sink when Vinny walks in on them. Despite Mandy’s attempts to cover it up, Paul reveals to a stunned Vinny that he’s his dad. Vinny reels, appalled to discover the extent to which both his parents have been lying to him. Vinny storms away, as The Dingles search in vain for Vinny, a frantic Mandy worries she’s lost him for good.
Andrea and Jamie return from their holiday. Belle refuses to talk to Jamie, pointing out his promises to divorce Andrea have been empty words so far, but she’s taken aback when he reveals he’s hired a solicitor to initiate the proceedings. Belle opens up to Jamie about her relationship with Jermaine and its subsequent breakdown, but Jamie promises her he’s serious about their future together. Later Andrea sees Jamie’s lap top and realises the affair is still going on.
Meanwhile, it’s Moira’s birthday and she feels stung when Cain gives her a card with the boys but gets her age wrong. Cain knows he’s messed up with Moira.
Elsewhere, later on Will is bouncing around full of the joys of spring - wanting the village to join him and Harriet for a drink in celebration of their engagement.
