As part of Paddy Dingle’s ongoing depression storyline, the men of Emmerdale lock themselves in the Woolpack for one night only to demonstrate the value of communication.
Fans of Emmerdale have watched helplessly in recent weeks as Dominic Brunt’s portrayal of fan favorite Paddy Dingle has battled worsening depression. His mental state has gradually gotten worse ever since he learned that his estranged wife Chas (Lucy Pargeter) had an affair with the late Al Chapman (Michael Wildman). In the ensuing weeks, his plot culminates as he considers suicide.
The startling scenes, which are scheduled to air next month, pave the way for a pivotal moment in the soap opera.
It will air an episode with only male actors for the first time in its 50-year history.
When Marlon (Mark Charnock) learns that his dear friend attempted suicide, he organizes a late-night lock-in at the Emmerdale Woolpack.
It’s not a drunken session like most pub lock-ins, and the only thing on the agenda is men talking to each other.
This plot has been developing slowly over the past few months as Paddy gradually sank deeper and deeper into despair, leading to the upcoming shocking scenes.
Marlon wants to do everything he can to help his friend, whose mental health is still precarious, after returning him safely home.
In spite of Paddy being at home and secure in the center of the village, Marlon is having a difficult time connecting with him and is concerned that Paddy will never have the courage to open up and talk.
“It doesn’t take long for Marlon to act on their information and organize this lock-in after Chas and Jimmy unintentionally give him this idea. Just hoping it will be beneficial.
Three out of every four suicides in the UK today are men, according to statistics.
With the goal of preventing male suicide, Andy’s Man Club and Samaritans have collaborated closely on this gritty storyline.
The long-running soap opera has dealt with controversial subjects before.
When Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter), who had terminal cancer, chose to end her own life rather than let it take her, they had to deal with the touchy subject of euthanasia in December.
Dominic, who has played Paddy for 26 years, lives a much happier life in real life than he does on screen.
He is married to Joanne Mitchell, an Emmerdale co-star, and the couple has two sons.
He is also a skilled director who co-wrote, co-directed, and starred in the zombie movie Before Dawn in 2012. He then went on to direct Bait in 2014 and Attack of the Adult Babies in 2017.
Wolf Manor, which he directed last year, was his most recent effort.
