Emmerdale: Fan theory suggests Paul is working with Jamie to set up Belle

Paul has a gambling addiction

Emmerdale fans have suggested that Paul is working with Jamie Tate to set up Belle.

A couple of weeks ago, the police questioned Belle and revealed a new witness had come forward saying they saw her run over Moira.

However viewers know that it was Jamie who is responsible for the hit and run.

The Dingles figured out Jamie most-likely hired someone to lie about witnessing the crime.

Meanwhile  after hearing about Belle’s struggles with mental health, Nate decided he would take the blame to save his aunt from going to prison.

However viewers think they’ve figured out who Jamie hired to be a witness to the hit and run – Vinny’s dad Paul.
