Emmerdale fans have been left screaming at their TV screens as they believe Belle Dingle had made a 'rookie mistake' in trying to hide her pregnancy decision from Tom King. As viewers of the ITV soap know, Tom is abusing his new wife with controlling behaviour and some recent horrifying physical acts.

Tom, played by James Chase, returned to the Dales last year, after leaving in 2013 when he made it his mission to make Chas Dingle's life a living hell following the death of his father, Carl King.

Following his return to the village as the new vet, Tom quickly rekindled a romance with Belle Dingle. Things were seemingly going well between the pair but concerns were triggered back in October when Tom popped the question to Belle and didn't take her turning him down very well, resulting in a scuffle with Belle left bleeding.

Belle forgave Tom and later popped the question with the help of none other than Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. Then earlier this year, they tied the knot, Tom's coercive control over his new wife has only escalated with him tracking her phone, setting up a 'puppy cam' in the house and isolating her from her family and friends.

Belle recently discovered she was pregnant, despite her initial concerns at trying for a baby with her husband, particularly after he made her think she'd suffered a relapse with her mental health. But during Wednesday's episode (June 19) of Emmerdale, Belle snuck away from the village to have an abortion.

After discovering Tom was tracking her movements, Belle hastily hatched a plan. As she left the house, Belle thought on her feet as she spotted Amelia Spencer was heading for a walk with her young daughter Esther. Amelia quickly spoke to Belle about Esther's love for her dog, Piper and having found the spare key to Tom's car, she offered Piper onto Amelia for the afternoon, saying she had an appointment to get to, and slipped her phone into Esther's pushchair.

Belle was then seen attending her appointment and spoke to the nurse about why she didn't feel ready to become a mum and said she hadn't told her husband about her plans to have an abortion. On her way back home, she narrowly missed being spotted missing by Tom as she raced to the woods to stop him from realising she wasn't with Piper after he tracked her phone.

Amelia played along with Belle's reasoning for being out with her and Esther, before grabbing her phone out of the pram and heading off home with Tom, leaving Amelia slightly perplexed. But Emmerdale fans think they have spotted how Tom will discover Belle's lies as when she returned home, she put the car back exactly as it was but left a parking ticket inside the car but it wasn't just the ticket as they also fear Tom may find the pills she was given by the abortion clinic.
