An increasingly volatile Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) will become even more of a concern for her loved ones in the coming weeks when she steals a bottle of vodka and trashes David Metcalfe’s (Matthew Wolfenden) shop.
Scenes to be shown on Tuesday 9 December will see Belle rebel when she first dials the number to her new school and starts shouting abuse down the line, telling the person at the other end that she is never going back there. And then later in the day, she ends up stealing a bottle of booze and going on a rampage at the village’s local store.
Belle has been raising eyebrows ever since her release from a juvenile detention centre. She dyed her hair black and seems to have been the target of a campaign of persecution, leaving parents Zak and Lisa frantic with worry. But are there more revelations to come about Belle’s behaviour?
