However actor Lawrence has poured cold water on the theory by insisting bosses still don’t know what they want for Mackenzie.
He told Inside Soap: "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 added: “The way I've been playing it thus far, is that Mack would flirt with a lamppost to get to the next point!"
"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."
However, the lack of clarity on Mackenzie’s sexual orientation and his repeated flirting with Aaron has seen some viewers brand it “queer-baiting”.
One wrote: “@emmerdale This is just queerbaiting now.”
A second said: “Honestly Mack & Aaron couldn't stop looking, smiling & Flirting with each other. Can't trust you to keep your clothes on.
“Either @emmerdale are queerbaiting or #Macron are seriously getting it on.”
However, another added: “I really love this banter and chemistry between Aaron and Mackenzie. It's a slow development but it's working really well in my opinion. Can't wait to see where this go. #Emmerdale”
