Key Events
Mrs Kirk, Paddy's mum, is determined to break Mandy Dingle & Paddy up.
First she offers to set Mandy up with her own business in Harrogate, providing that she never sees Paddy again, Mandy tells her where to go as she's far richer with her family than Mrs Kirk will ever be. In despair, she turns to her new friend Viv, who suggests that she could buy Mandy off. Mrs Kirk then offers to give money to the Dingle's if she marries anyone but Paddy. Again Mandy tells her no-way, but later changes her mind when she sees how happy her family are. Mrs Kirk lays down the law - Mandy has to find a fiance within a month, she has to stay married to him for 2 years, and she must never tell Paddy about the arrangement.

Eventually, she accepts Butch's offer of marriage, but only for money, not love (Butch is disappointed).
