And next week, the truth about the tragic death will begin to emerge, leaving the villagers floored.

Who’s met their end?
This week, the walls begin to close around Paul as Liv discovers the truth about Vinny’s beatings.
Liv confides in Aaron and tells him what she’s discovered and they head out on a mission to force Vinny to tell Mandy the truth.
The following day, an oblivious Mandy prepares for her wedding, while Vinny receives another awful beating from Paul.
It all kicks off as Aaron and Liv do their best to convince Vinny to come clean to Mandy, but how will Paul react?
Could Aaron and Liv be in danger?
It was recently revealed that the soap is planning a huge stunt with a deadly barn explosion in the coming weeks.
Speaking about the storyline, producer Laura Shaw previously told The Sun: “We’ve made no secret that our big Mandy/Vinny/Paul storyline will feature heavily in 2021.”
“As Paul becomes better at hiding what’s really going on, Mandy falls more in love with him, which ultimately leads to a marriage proposal and a big old Dingle wedding is planned,” she continued.
“But will Mandy and Paul really get their happily ever after, or will Vinny find the courage to be honest about the abuse Paul is subjecting him to?”
The producer also teased a huge spectacle for the scenes and called it “undoubtedly our most ambitious work since the dreaded COVID hit us”.
She also revealed that the storyline climax will be “absolutely epic and truly rewarding for our fans, who love it when we go big”.
“I can’t say much more about that, but what I can tell you is that ultimately this story will end in tragedy for at least one of our characters – but the question is who?”
