Paddy was heartbroken recently when he found out his wife Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) had been cheating on him with Al Chapman (Michael Wildman).

He spent the night with former flame Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) last week and he then left to run an errand and never returned.

PC Swirling revealed there had been a sighting of Paddy and the family watched the CCTV.

After confirming it was Paddy in the video, the copper revealed the force were scaling back their search.

However, the announcement left viewers wondering why the family aren't out and about looking for him.

"Why don't they go out and look for him! They've got cars,:" one person said.

"What I don't get is, why none of his family are out searching for him?", another added.

It has been revealed that Paddy's story is set to take a heartbreaking turn after he considers taking his own life.

Although he and Chas have both continued to cohabit above the Woolpack Pub as they parent their young daughter Eve, their daily arguments have begun to escalate.

As Paddy continues to struggle with the breakdown of his marriage, constant reminders of her infidelity and their shared grief over the death of their daughter Grace, it has all taken a toll on his mental health.

Speaking ahead of the upcoming episode, Paddy actor Dominic Brunt said it was a "huge honour and great responsibility" to be portraying the storyline.

"It’s an inherent problem in today’s society that most men don’t talk enough about their problems," said Dominic.

"We bottle them up, we don’t want to bother anyone, we become embarrassed, we feel we should be strong and not show weakness. If this story can shine a light on the issue or make even a small change to someone’s outlook or viewpoint, then it will have been worth it.

"It’s also a privilege to be working alongside The Samaritans and Andy’s Man Club in highlighting this issue."

In March, the story will take a heartbreaking turn as Paddy makes a return to the village to say goodbyes to his friends and family, before leaving again as he considers taking his own life.
