Emmerdale fans confused by Aaron and Ben sudden romance after Mack flirtation

Emmerdale viewers were confused during Thursday's trip to the dales, as they wondered whether Aaron Dingle and his ex Ben Tucker had reunited romantically.

Many pointed out they expected Aaron (Danny Miller) and Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) to get together, as the two had shown signs of a connection in previous scenes.

Knowing each other since they were teens, Aaron bullied Ben (Simon Lennon) for his sexuality when they were young, lashing out in a bid to deal with the abuse he was suffering at home.

Reconnecting in adulthood, Ben forgave Aaron for bullying him, and they eventually struck up a relationship earlier this year.

Despite giving things a shot, Ben eventually dumped Aaron over his temper, instructing him to sort out his life "before it's too late".

Ben, who works at Hawksford Outdoor Pursuits Centre, then disappeared for a few months, before unexpectedly reappearing in Aaron's life in May.

Recent scenes have seen Ben pop around to Aaron's house with increasing frequency, hinting things are back on track for their relationship.

Ben has offered Aaron support after his sister Liv Flaherty ran away to stay with her mum, her alcoholism having spiralled out of control.

Taking to Twitter, viewers were convinced the pair were an item, but didn't understand when their romance had blossomed, as it hadn't featured in the soap.

One said: "When did Aaron and Ben officially get together? I'm so lost."

"Wait are they together I'm lost I thought he was gonna get with Mack not Ben," a second added.

And a third replied: "I've no idea but they seem to act like they're in a relationship. He's not with Mackenzie but I think there's chemistry there."

"When did Aaron and Ben become official I'm so confused," a fourth penned.

"#Emmerdale I don't understand how Ben's got his feet firmly in the Dingle house," wrote a fifth viewer.

Is Aaron destined to be with Ben, or could a surprise romance with local conman Mackenzie blossom?
