The doomed pair Paddy and Chas are hit with a string of bad luck as they attempt to pursue romance in Emmerdale...
Are Paddy and Chas meant to be together in Emmerdale or aren’t they? Well if the coming week is anything to go by, the answer is no!
Every time they get together, disaster seems to strike. When the pair arrange a date to see if there’s still a spark and some chemistry between them, calamity awaits…
Paddy ends up with a smack in the mouth thanks to a minor mishap!
When Chas pops into the vets to see Paddy, he ends up getting a wallop.
Chas is just about to give Paddy a peck on the mouth when a gerbil escapes from a cage.
A terrified Chas spies the furry friend and screeches with horror.
As she recoils in shock she manages to whack Paddy in the mouth, giving him a bleeding lip.
Later on, and trying to put the accident behind them, Paddy and Chas go on a date at Pollard's B&B...
But when Paddy tries to impress Chas with a line he heard Ross use to chat up Rebecca, he's mortified and left red-faced, when Chas is less than impressed.
Worse is to come when he later tries to open a bottle of fiz and the cork goes flying... into Chas's eye! Seriously, could things get any more painful? Will these two persist with their dating efforts or will they knock things on the head?
