He may regret his choice of words as he soon gets kidnapped and finds himself held captive in an abandoned factory. As Charity is convinced that Mack is still angry with her, there is a chance that she may not realise anything is wrong before it's too late.

A teaser synopsis released reads: "Inside the dark, gloomy factory, there's no sign of Mackenzie, just the chair he was once bound to". Mackenzie's love triangle with Charity and Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) has gripped viewers for the best part of 2023 but actor Lawrence is ready to enjoy some down time after a hectic filming schedule.

Speaking to Daily Star and other press, Lawrence said: "It's been pretty relentless for about eight months. It's great to be working and all three of us are counting our lucky stars to be involved in such a dramatic and dynamic trio of love and emotion but put it this way, I'm looking forward to having a little break. We've had the best time filming over the past eight months, it's been great fun."

Emmerdale producer Laura Shaw recently said: "The Charity/Mackenzie/Chloe love triangle has been bubbling away for 18 months or so now. At Christmas, we'll see that reach a bit more of a crescendo, where Mackenzie pushes Chloe to her absolute limit.

"What we'll see is Chloe reach out to her father for help. Obviously we know from previous stories that Chloe's dad is not someone to be messed about with – he's quite a dark character. We know that he was quite controlling with Chloe and that people are afraid of him. So obviously, when she reaches out to him, what we will see is him helping Chloe in his own unique way."
