Charity (played by Emma Atkins) is already the mother of four children so the last thing she was expecting was to find out she was pregnant with her fifth child in her late 40s on Emmerdale. This has happened around the same time Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) has fallen pregnant and at the moment, the viewers of the ITV soap seem to have no idea who the father is of either baby. However, in a cruel twist, it could be Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) has been betrayed in his relationship without even realising it.

The drama began in Wednesday night’s instalment as Amelia attended the appointment for her termination but she scared herself when the time came to it.

As she ran out of the abortion clinic, she was met by Charity, who was startled to discover her neighbour was pregnant.

At this point, the stalwart managed to convince Amelia she was there because she was a woman of a certain age who needed to have her fibroids removed.

These are non-cancerous growths which form in or around the womb and not wanting to ask too many questions, the youngster seemed to buy the story.

After getting Amelia back inside the clinic, Charity sat with her as the medical professional spoke about the options available.

Back in the village, Charity urged the youngster to consider whether she really wanted to go through with the abortion.

Amelia had no idea the stalwart was going through the same dilemma as her and at the end of the episode, the news was confirmed.

After ushering Mackenzie out of the house, Charity was seen rebooking her abortion as she was spotted by her neighbour outside the clinic and failed to turn up for her appointment.

On the phone, she seemed sure she was going to go through with the termination but the decision could be taken out of her hands once her secret is out.

However, it could dawn on Mackenzie when he hears his girlfriend is pregnant he is very likely not to be the father.

She keeps it top secret

This is because, with everything going on with her family including her son Noah Dingle (Jack Downham) going to prison, the couple hasn’t been intimate in a while.

It could very well be the baby’s father is actually Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley), who might have slept with Charity after discovering his mother Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) had terminal cancer.

With his wife, Moira Barton (Natalie J Robb), keeping him in the dark about the news for months, he could have been angry and wanted to get revenge.

As soon as it happened, he could have regretted it and he and Charity would have made a deal never to talk about it again.

Unfortunately, the fact she is expecting could see their affair secret come under threat but will Mackenzie discover the baby’s father’s true identity?

The actress who plays Charity, Emma, has spoken out about her character falling pregnant again and what the future holds for her.

Emma explained: “This is absolutely not [a planned pregnancy].

“She keeps it top secret and doesn’t want to discuss it with anyone yet, especially not Mackenzie as she’s not sure she even wants to keep it.

“I think once she opens that sort of cabinet of a dilemma of ‘What should she do?’ then it becomes a whole different ball game.

“I think it’s going to be interesting and she knows she’s got this secret and so there is a lot of worry and anxiety and guilt.”

“I think a lot of the time Charity thinks, ‘What’s the quickest way to solve a problem?'” the actress continued to explain.

“Make it invisible almost and she knows she’s in her late 40s and she’s not the greatest mother in the village so I don’t even think she can handle letting the whole village know she is pregnant

“I think there will be a lot of scepticism and judgement and I think she knows this. She’s not maternal. She’s not been with Mackenzie long enough.

“And because he’s younger, she thinks, ‘Maybe it will trap him in those societal constraints of being domestic,’ and she thinks he’s not going to be interested in that.

“When the audience eventually sees his face, it’s extremely different to the one she imagines and that makes for a really interesting watch.”

“My character is multifaceted and she’s a bit of a rebel,” the soap star added.

“I think when you’ve got a character who can’t help but walk into trouble, it’s more interesting than someone who is sensible.”

Could this be a huge hint Charity has fallen pregnant with another man’s child as she recently embraced her rebellious side?

This could set up some explosive drama ahead of the show celebrating its 50th anniversary later this year with what seems to be two births on the cards.

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7:30pm on ITV, with an hour-long episode airing on Thursdays.
