Emmerdale star reveals if Jamie and Belle will have a happy ending
Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) and Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) have been having an affair behind Andrea’s (Anna Nightingale) back in Emmerdale, but — with the truth set to out in an explosive fashion in upcoming scenes — is the lovers’ romance doomed forever?
Andrea discovered the truth several weeks back when she stumbled upon Jamie and Belle kissing in the woods, and — in spite of her attempts to win her husband back — he’s simply smitten with his colleague, and therefore she decided that revenge was the only option.
In the coming episodes, Andrea exacts this revenge, as she displays intimate texts between Jamie and Belle on a large screen in the Woolpack during the pub quiz — and pretends that this is the first she’s heard of their dalliance.
Speaking about the upcoming scenes, actress Eden — who portrays Belle — said: ‘It’s a few hours into the quiz I think. The picture round that the vets are in charge of pops up on the projector screen and all of a sudden instead it’s Belle and Jamie’s private messages.
‘A few seconds after it sinks in what is going on and they both feel sick. Andrea starts crying and screaming at Jamie and Belle is left feeling like a disgusting person in complete shock.
‘The pub are just in shock. Obviously Ellis is there and feels so betrayed. She’s trying to deal with him. Whilst Charity, Andrea, Jamie and everyone else are judging the situation.
‘Everyone is giving them both grief – which I understand. Charity backs her corner but most of the family are at home at the Dingles, so she’s yet to deal with them.
‘Lydia is disappointed which hurts Belle I think, whilst Sam is just saying the most unhelpful things and Zak is trying to help his daughter yet can’t understand why she is going for a married man. And a Tate.’
However, with Andrea pretending this is the first time she’s learned of Jamie’s affair, it’s Belle who becomes Jamie’s target — as he believes it was she who outed their relationship in front of the whole pub.
Eden said: ‘Jamie assumes Belle has done this because who else would go on her phone and leak them. After it all comes out Belle wants Jamie to protect her and be on her side but he does the opposite and says no one else would be this crazy. Belle is so hurt.
‘Obviously he knows about her mental health problems and for him to throw them back in her face really makes her question the person he is. He shouts at her in front of everyone and Belle is left totally alone feeling she is to blame for everything.
But after what transpires, is there any chance of a happy ending for Jamie and Belle?
Eden said: ‘I think it’s hard, he has a wife and child and a mother who sticks her nose in and hates Belle and Belle wants commitment and a happy healthy relationship.
‘I don’t know if these two will ever balance out, with everyone happy and getting along! So goodness knows!
