As Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) plans to take revenge on Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) in tonight’s episode (October 15) after he framed her for a hit-and-run, something unusual happens.
Belle starts to hear the voice of her dead mother Lisa Dingle (Jane Cox).
At first, viewers may presume that Lisa is somehow back from the dead, but they will soon realise that something much darker is occurring.
But just what is wrong with Belle, and why is she hearing voices?
What is wrong with Emmerdale’s Belle Dingle?
Newer viewers may not know, but it has been previously revealed that Belle suffers from schizophrenia.
After accidentally killing schoolmate Gemma Andrews (Tendai Rinomhota) by pushing her to the ground in 2014, Belle was wracked with guilt and was convinced that she could hear Gemma talking to her.
Belle started acting reckless and later revealed that Gemma was forcing her into destructive behaviour including self-harm.
Later that year, Belle later tried to take her own life because she was being tormented by the voice of Gemma, but was saved from jumping off the top of a barn by big brother Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).
Things came to a head when Belle almost killed her dad Zak Dingle (Steve Halliwell) by running him over in early 2015.
Belle also lashed out at mum Lisa in 2016 when the voices in her head made her think that her mum was going to kill her.
After the incident, Belle was assessed and sent to a hospital in Surrey.
When she came out of the hospital six weeks later, she appeared to be better.
However, tonight’s episode seems to indicate she is having a relapse.
Will she be okay?
Emmerdale continues tonight, October 15 at 7pm and 8pm on ITV.
