Emmerdale double exit ‘sealed’ as viewers fear for Belle Dingle’s health

During the latest Emmerdale episode, Belle Dingle (played by Eden Taylor-Draper) decided to be open with her partner Tom King (James Chase) about accidentally killing Gemma Andrews (Tendai Rinomhota) in the past.

However, he struggled to take in the information and had to leave the conversation altogether which left her heartbroken.

She started worrying telling Tom the truth had ruined everything they have, despite hoping he would understand.

Later on, Tom clashed with Jimmy King (Nick Miles) in The Woolpack after the latter defended the infamous Carl King (Tom Lister).

Tom fumed at his uncle: “My mum hates [Carl] and every time I did something wrong she said I was taking after him.

“Just admit that your brother was a murderer and a rapist and we should all be glad he’s dead.”

Later on, Belle met up with Tom outside and he’d decided he did not want to move back to Leeds as he wanted to stay in Emmerdale for her.

He told Belle that Gemma’s death was “nothing like what Carl did”, but she felt she was being judged.

Belle then decided to break up with Tom, telling him: “I thought we would be good together… I don’t want to apologise for the person I am or turn myself into a girl I think you’d be happier with.
