MANDY Dingle rages at abusive Paul Ashdale’s coffin as she tries to get through to her son Vinny next week in Emmerdale.
Vinny – who received multiple violent beatings from Paul before his death – will remain in denial about the abuse in the coming weeks in the ITV soap.
Viewers will see Vinny brace himself to honour Paul’s memory next week as the hearse arrives outside the Dingles’ home.
Mandy disappears and struggles to control her emotions as she rages at Paul’s coffin, telling him he doesn’t deserve a funeral.
Vinny follows Mandy and, hearing her abuse towards his late dad, shouts at her that she should be ashamed of her actions.
Viewers will then see Vinny walking all alone through the village behind the hearse.
Liv is desperate to show Vinny her support, but he refuses to even look at her.
Inside the church, Vinny tries to read out his eulogy but struggles and ends up running off.
Speaking about why Vinny remains in denial about Paul’s abuse, Emmerdale star Bradley Johnson told Digital Spy: “Vinny’s reaction is one of confusion. He has had a year of this physical and mental abuse. He has ruined his relationship with Liv and I think he’s now lost himself completely.
“Vinny is finding it hard to comprehend how to deal with this situation. He is a broken man at the moment, with complete confusion over what to do next.
“People want to forget that it’s happened. They want to forget the bad things and just remember the good.
“Vinny is very much like that, as he has given his dad countless chances. Even after everything Paul has done, he just wants to forget all of that negative stuff and see his dad in a good light.”
