Emmerdale fans left confused by plot hole in major storyline

Emmerdale took a rather strange turn on Wednesday night when Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) pretended to be Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson) while texting his ex-fiancée Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland), who fled the Dales with their son Reuben.

Mack and Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) followed Amy as she departed the village to visit to her sister and nephew, but this ended in a row when Amy spotted them driving a couple of cars behind.

Mack stole Amy's phone during the brief altercation, before driving off with Charity as he attempted to discover Chloe's location.

He then opted to continue Amy and Chloe's text thread, pretending to be Amy, telling Charity that he had "put in a big X like she normally does, I've also typed whey eyyy a lot."

Fans were quick to point out that it was perhaps not the best strategy.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, one wrote: "i love the idea of Chloe reading a text from Amy but really mack and a massive wheeeeyyyyyayyyyyyyeee just in The middle of the text and Chloe not batting an eye [thumbs up emoji] sisterly bond [laughing emoji] #emmerdale

And a another quipped: "Mack’s text from Amy: ‘Aye wheyaye pet I’m on me way like champion see ya in a bit like gadgiessss wheyaye radgie’ Chloe after reading: legit. #emmerdale"

Others pointed out that Mack's entire plan was rather flawed from the beginning, as one asked: "What exactly did idiot Mack plan to do? Snatch the baby and run? #Emmerdale"

While Mack's fake texts did get Chloe and Reuben to the park she was meant to meet Amy at, she quickly became suspicious after a text called her "babe."

Hiding behind a tree she then spotted Mack and Charity and fled the park, texting Mack that he will never see Reuben again.

And it seems that there aren't too many fans of this storyline, with some viewers calling for Mack to be killed off, while others shared hopes that Amy would be the next character axed from the show.

If either Mack or Amy are killed off, they wouldn't be only exits in recent weeks, with David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) having just left the village.

The character's dramatic exit came after he was left heartbroken upon discovering that his son Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) had been secretly sleeping with his ex-girlfriend Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins).

This exit was preceded by the departure of executive producer Jane Hudson who left the soap just days after this year's Super Soap week.
