With Andrea being the only one to know Jamie's secret, she used this to her advantage and persuaded him to rekindle their marriage or she will go to the police.

To make matters worse, Jamie was going to leave his wife for Belle Dingle after their affair turned serious... meaning Belle now has no idea why Jamie is suddenly giving her the cold shoulder.
