Next week sees Mandy and Vinny Dingle in grave danger as Terry arrives in the village.

The pair are clearly desperate to pay Terry back his money, and are continuing with the plan to get their hands on Lydia's money.

But as the pair try and hack into her online banking they're caught in the act by Lydia herself and they desperately try and explain themselves being forced to flee from a Dingle Court hearing.

After a botched attempt at escaping Mandy confesses that they were running a card counting scam at various casinos, all run by Terry.

And while the news that Mandy's dealings were dodgy comes as no surprise to anyone, it is then revealed to viewers that Charity was also involved in the scam.

As the Dingles deliberate their verdict, Mandy is sure that the court will vote in their favour... but Vinny's more worried that they will work out his dark secret that he's been hiding since he arrived - that he's not Mandy's son.
