Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) is to land herself in hospital in a forthcoming episode (Tuesday 25 June) after drinking some of Debbie Dingle’s dodgy vodka.
After being given short shrift by Debbie (Charley Webb), who is trying to hide her haul, Belle will be seen helping herself to a box of the booze. Later, Debbie finds Belle drunk and tells her to go back to Tug Ghyll where she will meet her and help her to sober up.
However, when Debbie arrives home, she finds Belle unconscious and lying in a pool of her own vomit. Worryingly, she can’t get her to wake up and a scared Debbie calls for an ambulance while sending Sarah to get help. Sarah finds Cameron (Dominic Power), who clocks the vodka bottle and recognises it to be one of Debbie’s.
But it seems there’s little time at the present to dwell on this as Belle is rushed to the treatment room at the hospital. As the family wills Belle to wake up, the doctor informs the Dingles that they are looking at the risk of brain damage as the vodka was contaminated…
