Emmerdale’s Thomas Atkinson has revealed he was subjected to a terrifying attack while on holiday in Paris.

The actor, who plays the soap’s serial killer Lachlan White, opened up about his ordeal on Instagram.

Sharing a stunning picture of the city of light, he then shocked followers with the accompanying caption.

“Last shot before I had a knife pulled on me and phone stolen,” it read. “Thank you, Paris. Nice to know I was welcome.”

Fans were understandably worried for the 19-year-old but he assured them he was doing okay.

Tom wrote: “For anyone asking, I’m fine. found it quite amusing tbh. Being stuck in a foreign country with no phone was an experience to say the least. (sic)”

Glad to hear he’s not been traumatised by the incident.

It looked like the teen had been having a terrific time beforehand; and he’s clearly a very talented photographer, judging by some of his other images.

Tom is currently at the centre of the most talked-about storyline in Emmerdale. Having killed his mother and grandfather, best mate Gerry and his fake uncle Terry (very probably), it now looks as though he has also done away with his aunt, Rebecca.

And, if that’s not enough, he may well be adding Priya and the love of his life, Belle, to the list.

Most soap villains tend to get a bit of stick from viewers when they’re out and about even though, y’know, IT’S NOT REAL.

But Tom has received some LOL reactions, he revealed last week.

“It’s normally old women calling me a ‘naughty boy’. I had an old woman smack my bum in the Trafford Centre, which was really weird.

“But it was great – I loved it.”
