Charity takes Belle to a spa where she proceeds to get plastered while deciding what to do about her fake pregnancy in Emmerdale

*Hour-long episode*

Having won a pass for two to a spa, Charity has taken Belle, and she’s on a mission to get the teen to go through with a fake miscarriage to put an end to her fake pregnancy. But Belle has other ideas and knocks back drink after drink. When Lisa arrives at the spa as a surprise, Belle manages to get away without her mum finding out she’s drunk (when she’s supposedly ‘expecting’). By chance, Belle then bumps into her old friend from prison, Ellie, and offloads her problems. Ellie then admits she’s pregnant with a child she doesn’t want, and pushes Belle to take her baby! It turns out the crazy offer is an imagined one as Ellie isn’t there at all. Belle’s imagined her – her psychosis is back.

Once again, the path of true love doesn’t run smoothly for David and Tracy. Worried that David has proposed for the wrong reasons, Tracy knocks him back. Much to everyone’s surprise, David takes it well and vows he’ll get Tracy to accept his proposal at a later date!

In a bid to get revenge on Lawrence, Lachlan takes one of grandad’s classic cars out for a spin. But the prank causes yet more angst between him and Lawrence.
