Emmerdale fans were left confused as Vinny Dingle splashed out an expensive funeral for his dad Paul, despite the Dingles’ huge debts.
A couple of weeks ago, Paul died in the wedding barn explosion. Although Mandy was devastated by his death, she soon learnt he had been beating their son.
She refused to pay for his funeral, however Vinny was adamant that his dad never hurt him and he would do his funeral for him.
Although Sam and Lydia tried help pay for the funeral, they discovered Paul had taken a credit card out in Lydia’s name and left her in debt.
In last night’s episodes (Thursday, April 16) it was the day of Paul’s funeral. A hearse took Paul’s coffin to the church for the service, which was only attended by Vinny.
Later, Vinny went to the graveyard for his burial and soon the rest of the Dingle family showed up to support him.
However fans were left questioning how the Dingle family were able to pay for the funeral, as they’re in debt.
#Emmerdale Can anybody tell me where Vinny got the money to pay for the funeral? Also, where did Vinny get the money for the burial plot? These things are not cheap! I wonder if Vinny has been gambling? Like father, like son!

Emmerdale Paul: Mandy tries to get money to pay for the funeral
In next week’s scenes Lydia and Sam talk to the bank about Paul’s credit card fraud, but it doesn’t go well.
Meanwhile, Mandy asks Charity for a loan to pay for Paul’s funeral. But Charity plays hardball and instead offers to buy the salon off her.
Later Vinny finds a notebook with all of Paul’s betting wins and losses. There are also future tips in the notebook, which give Vinny an idea.
Soon he secretly visits a betting site, but Mandy is horrified when she later finds Vinny watching the end of a race.

Desperate to take the financial pressure off Vinny’s shoulders, she does a deal with Mack.
