Emmerdale fans were left furious that nice character Belle Dingle has turned nasty as she was rude to Tracy in last night’s episode (Wednesday August 26).
Currently Belle is keeping Jamie’s secret – that he is the one responsible for Moira’s hit and run.
Recently, Belle’s nephew Nate was fired from Wiley’s farm, but when he found out what Jamie did, Jamie bribed him into keeping quiet.
In last night’s visit to the Dales, Nate and Tracy ran into Belle and Jamie outside the HOP restaurant and Tracy mentioned they were getting a takeaway to celebrate.
But Jamie responded saying: “Why do we need to know that?”
As Tracy asked if it was ‘be rude to Tracy day’, Jamie said: “Honestly you couldn’t be further from my mind.”
Jamie walked off leaving Tracy baffled. As Tracy asked Belle what his problem was, she replied saying: “He’s just quite fussy who he speaks to. So am I.”
As she followed Jamie, Tracy was left confused by their encounter. But Nate told Tracy he couldn’t afford to fall out with Jamie as he couldn’t risk losing his job again.
However viewers were furious that Belle has suddenly turned into a rude character.
What’s with Belle being rude to Tracey? That is NOT on! #Emmerdale
