    Mandy Dingle

    Lisa Riley could return to Emmerdale following her success on Strictly Come Dancing.

    The actress, who left the dancing competition in last night's (December 16) semi-final, played Mandy Dingle in the ITV1 soap from 1995 to 2001.

    New Emmerdale producer Kate Oates could offer Riley a deal to rejoin the cast, the Daily Star Sunday reports.

    "Lisa has been a huge hit on Strictly so it's no great surprise Emmerdale bosses want her back," a source said.

    "Mandy's ex-husband *Paddy Kirk is having marriage *problems so it makes sense to bring back Lisa."

    A friend of Riley's admitted that the 36-year-old would have to think hard about making a comeback to Emmerdale.

    "Lisa loved her time on Emmerdale but she's finally known for being Lisa Riley rather than Mandy Dingle," the source said.

    "She wants to use her Strictly success to open new doors. Having said all that, she isn't stupid enough to rule out a return without at least discussing it."

    Please no. There are far too many Dingles in Emmerdale as it is.

    Emmerdale star Dominic Brunt has addressed rumours that Lisa Riley might rejoin the soap.

    The Dales actor, whose alter ego Paddy Kirk was married to Riley's character Mandy Dingle, believes a surprise comeback would be "very, very interesting".

    "I'm in touch with Lisa and I'm dying to ask her, but I don't think she'd tell me," he told Soaplife magazine.

    "Her return would be very, very interesting. She was Paddy's first love and his first wife and she'd certainly shake things up."

    New Emmerdale producer Kate Oates was said to be interested in approaching Riley, who played Mandy from 1995 to 2001.

    Riley's profile soared after reaching the semi-finals of last year's Strictly Come Dancing.

    So the show gets renamed, has a set of the village built and a plane crash to make the show not center around the Sugdens, but now it's just about centering around the Dingles...
