Amy and Matty are taken aback by Mack’s dejection. Is there any hope for them going forward?
Fans of Emmerdale are aware that Chloe is still around because the show’s executives recently revealed she will be appearing in a significant Christmas storyline.
Laura Shaw, the show’s producer, stated to Digital Spy and other media outlets: “The Charity, Mackenzie, and Chloe love triangle has been brewing for about eighteen months.” That will reach a bit more of a crescendo around Christmas, when Mackenzie pushes Chloe to the brink.
“What will happen is that Chloe will ask her father for assistance. We already know from earlier tales that Chloe’s father is a dangerous man and should not be trifled with.
“We are aware of his controlling behavior towards Chloe and the fear he inspires in others. Thus, it stands to reason that when she gets in touch with him, we’ll witness him lending Chloe a hand in a special way.”
Weeknights at 7.30 p.m., ITV1 and ITVX stream Emmerdale.
