Murdering Emmerdale teen Lachlan White could be pushed to kill again if girlfriend Belle Dingle is forced to leave him and the village behind for a job opportunity in London.
In a scene from the episode airing in hour-long edition on Friday 22 June, Lachlan has that all-too-familiar look in his eye as Belle tries and fails to blag him a place on a trainee scheme with potential investor Freddy at a top London firm.
Bright Belle has already been scouted by Freddy as having a big future in business thanks to her Whingles drink brand and offered her a year-long contract down south. Not wanting to leave her boyfriend, Belle begs Freddy to let her fella tag along and be an apprentice too – but Freddy is less than keen.
Belle eventually decides to go alone, which leads to jealous Lachlan later following Freddy and plotting to launch a surprise attack in a car park with a rock to the back of his head – is the thought of losing Belle enough to make him claim another victim so soon after killing Gerry Roberts?
Emmerdale airs this scene on Friday 22 June at 7pm on ITV.
