Emmerdale fans are convinced they are seeing things...

Emmerdale tonight saw Belle Dingle almost kill Tracy Metcalfe as she started hallucinating  after not taking her schizophrenia medication.

Fans of the soap will know that Belle's mental health has been on a downward spiral recently after the pressure of what happened with Jamie Tate took its toll.

Since then Belle has stopped taking her medication, leaving her suffering from terrifying hallucinations and hearing her late mum's voice.

Tonight's Emmerdale saw Belle breaking into Home Farm, intent on killing Jamie while listening to Lisa's voice in her head.

While Belle initially thought Jamie was home, it turned out she was confused and she was actually talking to Mackenzie.

Later she got home to the Dingle house, only to come face to face with Jamie there.

As they talked, a confused Belle started threatening Jamie with a huge kitchen knife, only it wasn't actually Jamie she was with, it was Tracy.

As a terrified Tracy tried to talk Belle round, worried about her safety as well as the safety of her unborn baby, she struggled to get Belle to believe that she wasn't Jamie.

However, as the drama unfolded, fans were more concerned about the size of the knife that Belle had been carrying around the village.

Not only had no one seemed to notice that Belle had been brandishing a huge knife, but some fans were even convinced that the knife was getting bigger every time they saw it...

Thankfully Tracy managed to get Belle to see that she wasn't Jamie and soon she managed to call for help.

As the Dingles all rallied around Belle, she was taken to hospital to be checked out.
