However, an unexpected twist involving Tom's potential demise could halt her plans. If Belle reconsiders her decision, it could prompt Debbie to visit the village to check on her, or perhaps the mere mention of her name suggests that Debbie is poised for a return.

Debbie Dingle actress Charley Webb left the soap in 2021 but there is room for a potential return as her presence is still felt on the show, with her daughter Sarah Sugden living with Debbie's mother, Charity Dingle. Neither the soap nor actress Charley have confirmed a return, so it may just be a mention for now.

Elsewhere, Things are not looking good for Tom as he lashes out after discovering the truth about Belle's abortion.

The couple were planning to have a baby together but after thinking it through Belle decided to have an abortion but she lied to Tom and claimed that it was a miscarriage.
