Emmerdale SPOILERS: Jimmy’s accused of abusing Archie

Is all as it seems?

Poor Jimmy King finds himself in serious trouble in next week’s Emmerdale when he is accused of child abuse.

But while Jimmy is being blamed for all sorts of horrific crimes, it seems that perhaps not all is as it seems when the trouble between Arthur Thomas and Archie Breckle takes a new twist.

Emmerdale fans have seen Arthur take a dislike to Archie since he arrived in the village, jealous of the fact he is getting all the attention after his mum Rachel died.

But it seems Arthur’s bullying of Archie isn’t letting up any time soon when things turn nasty at a memorial picnic for Ashley Thomas.

Arthur is annoyed when Jai brings Archie along to a picnic that has been organised to remember his dad on what would have been his birthday.

After the picnic Arthur is annoyed when Laurel suggests that perhaps he could entertain Archie, hoping the boys will play together nicely.

But the friendship that Laurel is convinced the pair are forming is nowhere to be seen when Arthur unleashes his anger at Archie.

Arthur rants at his nemesis for ruining his dad’s birthday, he lashes out at Archie and knocks him unconscious.

But somehow Arthur manages to get away with his bullying once again when everyone assumes that Archie fell and knocked himself out.

As everyone is tending to the youngest of the boys, Laurel and Jai are horrified to find other bruises on Archie and wonder where he could have got them from.
