Emmerdale fans couldn’t stop laughing as they tuned into Wednesday’s episode after witnessing a kiss between Jimmy King and Mandy Dingle.
Due to current social distancing rules, actors Nick Miles and Lisa Riley had to sit apart on separate benches to film a scene where they had a heartfelt conversation.
Ahead of Jimmy’s appearance in court, he confided in Mandy who told him she wants to read out a statement to the judge supporting him.
After reading it out to him, Jimmy leaned in for a kiss with Mandy – but the ITV soap quickly cut to an advert break.
A third added: “Jimmy launching on Mandy is the funniest thing I’ve seen in ages! #emmerdale.”
And a fourth tweeted: “Socially distant attempts at kisses are horrendous #emmerdale.”
Other viewers were shocked by the kiss but were keen to see Jimmy and Mandy couple up and enjoy a romance.
One wrote: “Jimmy & Mandy = POWER COUPLE make it happen.”
A second tweeted: “Jimmy launching on Mandy is the funniest thing I’ve seen in ages!”
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
