As fans continue to grieve the loss of matriarch Faith Dingle who took her life following her battle with breast cancer, viewers are desperate to find out if Mandy and Paddy will get back together again.
Now, in an exclusive interview with Daily Star, the brunette beauty, 46, admitted that “the world needs Paddy and Mandy back together again” as residents slowly discover her sister’s affair.
She hinted: “The world needs Mandy and Paddy together, but I can’t tell you anything. Me and Dom are the best of friends and have been since we were teenagers, we're like brother and sister at work.
“We love working together, that’s all I can say, but we wouldn’t want to do it so quickly, we want to keep the audience guessing because it’s what the audience want.”
“There's so much exciting stuff coming for Mandy in the new year,” she hinted. “It’s great, I mean what a character, every day is a fun day in Mandy land”.
She went on to admit she can’t go anywhere without fans asking her when Mandy and Paddy will get back together on the ITV show.
Lisa added: “The show’s just going from strength to strength and I’m so proud to be in the show, but everywhere I go – and I mean I can’t go anywhere without someone saying what’s happening with Mandy and Paddy.”
