MONTHS have gone by since Chas Dingle and Paddy Kirk separated following her affair with the late Al Chapman.
But the Emmerdale favourite played by Lucy Pargeter deals with another blow next week as she loses her daughter Eve.
Chas was once keen to fix her marriage with Paddy (Dominic Brunt) but the village vet decided otherwise.
He even embarked on a new romance with former flame Mandy Dingle while Chas has remained single since their split.
Next week on ITV, Chas struggles on the anniversary of her daughter Grace's death and she's frustrated when Eve insists on going to the swings instead of visiting her late sister's grave.
As Paddy reflects on how life has moved on at the graveyard, Chas is quietly in torment, feeling stuck in the past.

Chas’ offer of a drink with Paddy is rejected as he goes for lunch with Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley), and she is left feeling completely alone.
Later that day, Harry introduces himself to Chas as "Simon", and buys her a drink himself.
They easily settle into each other’s company while his intentions remain unclear.
Bonding over their late children, Chas admits bringing "Simon" home was a mistake and he kindly agrees to sleep on the sofa.

In later scenes, rebuffed by Chas’ earlier defiance, Paddy tells Chas that Eve wants to live with him from now on.
Chas puts her foot in it with a comment about Mandy’s motherhood and is forced to leave Eve in Tenants with a worried Paddy.
Outside the house, with tears streaming down her face, Chas calls "Simon."
