Mandy Dingle has long been a fan favorite on the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, and on Monday, observant viewers couldn’t help but notice a small error affecting her persona.
Fans of Emmerdale are aware that Paddy Kirk (played by Dominic Brunt) has been dealing with mental health issues ever since his marriage ended, and in Monday’s episode, he was coerced into going on two dates. Paddy’s date removed her coat to show she was donning a matching, multicolored sweater as friend Mandy (Lisa Riley) stared on from behind the bar. Despite how funny the incident was, viewers were perplexed as to why the ITV serial did not address the wardrobe gaffe and wondered if something had been “missed.”
To meet a mother and daughter, Paddy traveled to The Woolpack with his father Bear Wolf (Joshua Richards).
When it became clear that Paddy and his date were wearing the same bright jumper, nobody brought up the coincidence as Mandy watched from the bar as Paddy clumsily engaged with his date.
How do you feel about the group? Watching the group, Mandy questioned Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin).
It appears that Bear set up Paddy on a blind date, she continued.
“Do you think he’s ready to be thrown back into the dating pool so soon?” Charles questioned.
“No I do not,” Maddy replied. “Definitely not them sharks.”
Later, Paddy awkwardly remarked to his date and her mother: “So, you two look quite similar, are you sisters?”
“That’s my mum,” his date responded, adding: “Hang on, are you saying that I look as old as my mother?”
Paddy corrected himself, “No, I was simply saying that your mum looks as young and as wonderful as you,” and Mandy scowled as she overheard.
Paddy eventually came up with an explanation and got out of the awkward situation.
Before he did, it was obvious that Mandy and Paddy’s date were both sporting the same attire in the setting.
Despite the fact that the program appeared to make viewers aware of it, no character commented, leading some fans to believe they had “missed” a scene.
Many people pointed out the error on social media. Twitter user @maitra sulagna shared: “The fact that Mandy and the other woman shared a jumper could not have been more evident, yet they made NO ALLEGATION OF IT! #Emmerdale.”
“#Emmerdale Did I miss it or was the Mandy/Redhead jumper-snap mentioned at the bar?” questioned @fussyMcWhiskers
Mandy Definitely Won Jumper Gate!! #Emmerdale, said @11syoung in jest.
The same jumper as Mandy from #Emmerdale, according to @TwellyWatcher, is hilarious.
Added by @Flat l1ned: “I’ve just noticed that Lisa and the new woman talking to Paddy are both sporting the same sweater. #Emmerdale.”
“#Emmerdale Mandy wishing she wore her leopard-print tabard behind the bar,” said @fussyMcWhiskers.
Query from @maitra sulagna “So we don’t care that Mandy and that woman are both sporting the same sweater? #Emmerdale.”
The program didn’t mention the matching jumpers again, but Paddy and Mandy ended up laughing together at the bar about the unfortunate date.
