Emmerdale viewers are convinced that Tom King remembers everything after being electrocuted in a shock twist.

As fans know, Tom has been abusing wife Belle since they got together and she has lost her spark after being isolated and manipulated by her partner.

Tom had put pressure on her to start a family and after she fell pregnant he was over the moon however Belle wasn’t so excited as she felt she couldn’t raise a baby in her current abusive environment.

Last week, Belle made a difficult decision to terminate her pregnancy but told Tom that she had a miscarriage. During tonight’s episode of the ITV hit soap, things took a dramatic turn. Belle decided to confess to her mental health care coordinator Rachel, that she told Tom she had a miscarriage instead of an abortion.


Rachel started to get suspicious about Belle and Tom's relationship after finding out that he put cameras inside and outside the house to keep an eye on Belle’s every move. Belle started to panic, so Rachel encouraged her to take a break so Belle quickly made arrangements to go to Scotland and see sister Debbie Dingle.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the village, Tom was up at the farm doing some work but was left raging after Noah accidentally let slip that Belle was in town for an appointment instead of walking Piper.

Tom later found out that Belle went to the abortion clinic. He was unable to contain his rage so he started smashing things in the barn - however things took a turn when he accidentally hit against the barn's rotary isolator and electrocuted himself.
