Emmerdale’s Paddy Kirk is left shocked next week when his biological father, wrestler Bear Wolf, arrives in the village. But his arrival certainly isn’t a quiet affair…
Soap fans will know that Paddy has been left torn over his feelings for Bear Wolf ever since his trip to see him in Belfast.
While the pair managed to do some catching up over in Ireland, their time together was short-lived, and Paddy came back to Emmerdale wishing he could have said more to his dad.
But it looks like his prayers are about to be answered next week when Bear Wolf comes looking for Paddy in Emmerdale – much to the vet’s shock.
As Paddy and Chas gear themselves up for their baby scan, the pair are terrified after what happened to them last time.
Struggling to cope with his feelings, Paddy puts his fears from his mind by building a beautiful garden in memory for daughter Gracie… but before he has a chance to finish it, it’s time for their hospital appointment.
Thankfully for Chas and Paddy the scan goes well and they return to the village with good news… their baby is fit and healthy.
Everyone is thrilled for the couple that things seem to be going well for them this time, and as Chas and Paddy spread the news, they’re overwhelmed to find their friends have finished the memorial garden for Gracie.
Knowing that things are going to be different for them this time, Paddy tells Chas how he believes that her pregnancy is going to be peaceful…
But just as he announces that he’s going to make sure the next few months are stress-free, there’s an almighty crash outside the bar.
As everyone comes running out of the pub, they’re stunned to find Bear Wolf has crashed into the village and come off his motorbike.
But that’s not all – Bear has managed to crash into the new memorial garden for Gracie, and it is now in tatters.
How will Paddy feel about seeing his new-found dad once again?
And what has bought Bear to Emmerdale?
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
