Joanie and Belle will come to blows again in the coming weeks, mere months after their last set-to. But this time it’s Joanie who gets the upper hand with a well-placed slap.
Belle has made no secret of her loathing for Joanie, ever since it was revealed at Christmas that she’d been having a secret affair with Belle’s dad Zak.
Now, upcoming scenes will see Joanie realising that Lisa has something to do with a ring of hers that has gone missing – all of which sees Belle leaping in to defend her mum.
But Belle’s badmouthing of Joanie goes too far and the latter ends up resorting to violence. As Zak walks into the factory, he witnesses Joanie launching a physical attack on Belle – but what will make of the fight that’s unfolding before his eyes?
