Emmerdale’s Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) has developed quite the connection with Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) since crossing paths with the young man last year.
The newcomer for lack of a better expression, gets Aaron, and vice versa, and therefore they’ve been spending quite a lot of time in one another’s company.
The duo, however, have been somewhat divided in recent weeks, after Aaron was accused of stealing Brenda Walker’s (Lesley Dunlop) brooch – a crime which Mack commited himself.
Aaron is now facing jail time, and Mack is riddled with guilt as a result, and this week will see him set in motion a plan to try and convince Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) to drop the charges.
It’s clear that Mack cares deeply for Aaron, but could the two be more than just friends?
‘The way I’ve been playing it thus far, is that Mack would flirt with a lamppost to get to the next point!,’ actor Lawrence Robb told Inside Soap.
‘I think Aaron does fancy Mack in an: “Oh I shouldn’t… but I do” kind of way, and I think Mack knows that and enjoys the attention.’
Discussing Mack’s sexuality, Lawrence added: ‘It’s interesting, as Sam asked him recently: “Are you gay?” and Mack said “I can be whatever I want to be”, so he’s not really anything at the moment.
‘I don’t think the writers are going down a route of Mack’s straight, bisexual or gay, as I think he’s just free. And I don’t think that Mack’s really interested in anything romantic as of yet. ‘
‘He’s just very in-the-moment, like what happened with Charity.’
Lawrence previously addressed Mackenzie’s relationship with Aaron in an exclusive chat with Metro.co.uk.
‘His relationship with Aaron builds more,’ The 29-year-old told us at the time. ‘I think a lot of people are rooting for Aaron and Mackenzie to be together… I’m not going to divulge any more into that!’
