Emmerdale fans took to social media after last night's hour-long episode to share their theories about the true identity of the father of Chloe Harris' unborn child.

The episode saw Chloe have a heart-to-heart with Mackenzie Boyd, who is currently believed to be the baby's father, that she him express guilt at keeping this a secret but that he's focused on saving his relationship with Charity Dingle.

Meanwhile elsewhere in the Dales, Paddy Kirk kicked his cheating wife Chas Dingle out of their home after he discovered her affair with Al Chapman.

The ending of the episode saw Chloe depart the village in a taxi, telling her pal Sarah: "I'm gonna be full on with Christmas stuff so you know don't worry if I'm not texting every five seconds.

"I need to get one with my life…well make one." She then asked the taxi driver to take her as far as £15 could get.

As the taxi began to drive off, Paddy, who was sat on a nearby bench shared a moment of eye contact with the youngster, before waving as she left.

This scene left fans somewhat confused, with some taking it to be a clue that perhaps Mackenzie isn't the father of the baby and that it may actually be Paddy's child.

Taking to Twitter one fan asked: "Am I missing something between Chloe and Paddy, is he the baby's father?"

And a second wrote: "Why did Chloe stare at Paddy?" to which another viewer replied: "Think Paddys the real father of her baby."

Others commented that, while shocking, this would also make for a rather off match, with one commenting: "Gorgeous girl sleeps with grumpy vet old enough to be her grandfather, #Emmerdale may be far fetched but really!"

While another simply responded to the theory with laughing emojis.

Other fans took to Twitter to reveal they had be left feeling somewhat emotional when it was revealed that Dolores, the Dingle family pig, would have to be put down.

One viewer said: "That's it – I'm upset. Not about Paddy, Chloe or anyone. THE PIG HAS DIED! #emmerdale."

While another wrote: "Aww the Dingle family’s pig isn’t well. #Emmerdale" with crying emojis.

Emmerdale's official Twitter page also tweeted the emotional moment, writing: "Goodbye, Dolores the pig!" To which a collection of viewers replied with sobbing emojis.
