The men of the village organise a late-night lock-in to talk in Emmerdale

Will Paddy have the courage to join them and seek the support he needs?

The constant worry over Paddy is taking its toll on Chas, Marlon and Bear who are all aware it’s a long road for Paddy’s recovery. However, they're bolstered when Paddy arrives home and divulges he’s arranged to see a therapist.

The next day, Marlon does his best not to convey his desperation for Paddy to seek further professional help and is relieved to hear Paddy calling another counselling service. But when he hears that Paddy has a two-week wait to see someone, Marlon is concerned.

When Marlon can't give him the space he's asked for, Paddy is irritated and the following day, Marlon’s gutted that he can’t get through to his best friend. Confiding in Nate and Jimmy, Marlon fears that he'll never get through.

When Chas informs Marlon that women are generally better at dealing with their emotions than men, because they speak to friends, Jimmy admits the community of the pub is his therapy.

As Marlon acts on this information (and in a first for Emmerdale), Friday's episode will only include the male cast as the front doors of the Woolpack are locked so that the men of the village can stay behind for a late night lock-in, hoping to use the excuse as a forum to talk.

Cain, Jimmy, Liam, Bob, Charles, Sam, Nate, Marlon and Bear start their evening with the hope Paddy will join them and as the men begin to talk, starting with their childhood nicknames and life moments that have troubled them or need to get off their chests, they begin to play a friendly game of darts.

Will Paddy have the courage to join them and seek the support he needs?

Emmerdale continues Mondays to Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV1
