As the saying goes: First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby. And for Vinny (Bradley Johnson) and Liv Dingle (Isobel Steele) that topic comes up next week.

With a seaside party for Faith bringing everyone together an offhand comment from Zak gives Liv thoughts of the future when he mentions how good Vinny is with kids and says about them having a child of their own.

There’s clearly a massive obstacle in the way, the couple haven’t even slept together before.

The pair are both in agreement and decide to start with a dog, for now.

With Isobel Steele leaving Emmerdale soon any hope of a happy future is doomed before it starts.

ITV airs these scenes from Monday October 10 on ITV.
