But viewers watched Mandy soften towards Paul earlier this month after he faked his own kidnapping to scam Mandy into paying his debts – and worm his way back into her life.

And the schemer continues to pool the wool over Mandy’s eyes next week as she suggests to Vinny that he may have PTSD after the kidnapping.

Paul jumps on Mandy’s suggestion as a lifeline and beams as Mandy and Vinny promise to support him. 

The following day, Paul tells Vinny they’ve got the day off to give Mandy something special for her birthday. 

Mandy is touched when Paul organises a family cycling trip at HOP.

Paul defends Mandy when she cycles past Al and splashes him with mud and later, when they’re back at home, Mandy tells Paul she’d be lost without him and invites him upstairs. 

As they emerge from the bedroom, Mandy tells Paul that they should get married sooner rather than later. 

But when Mandy asks Lydia to be her bridesmaid the next day, Lydia is wary.

Will Mandy listen to Lydia’s advice?

Fans knew something fishy was going on when Mandy arrived at the kidnapping just in time to see Connor dragging Paul into a van.

And their suspicions were confirmed when Paul later revealed the whole thing had been an act – and that he’d actually spent a couple of nights in a hotel while Mandy scrambled around to find the money.
