Fans of EMMERDALE believe Belle Dingle will become pregnant with Ellis Chapman’s child.
The ITV’s 50th anniversary is approaching, and bosses have confirmed that one of the characters will have a new baby just in time for the festivities.
It’s left fans guessing who the expectant mother is, and some believe it’ll be Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper).
The character just began seeing Ellis (Aaron Anthony), however, with the news that Aaron has left the show, Emmerdale watchers believe Belle will find out she is pregnant right before he departs the village.
“If Belle gets pregnant, I hope they don’t neglect her mental health difficulties,” one fan remarked on Twitter.
“Belle?” said another. Ellis is about to go. They appear to be reigniting the flames. Is Ellis likely to die because Belle is expecting a child?!”
“Yes, I’m here for Belle getting pregnant, she needs another narrative, and she will make a fantastic mother,” a third tweeted.
Emmerdale will celebrate its 50th anniversary in October, and executive producer Jane Hudson revealed at a recent press event that “a new baby will be arriving in Emmerdale before the end of the year.”
“I think that’s not giving anything away as there are so many female characters in the show, but there will be a new arrival before the year is out.
“There’s probably going to be a birth in the anniversary month perhaps!
“Babies in soaps are either born during program celebrations or during Christmas, therefore one of those will happen.”
After a racial inquiry was initiated against two of the soap’s top stars, The Sun reported last month that Aaron was leaving his role as Ellis.
“Aaron is deeply furious about this scenario,” a source said, “and he had to be persuaded to return to Leeds to film his parts in recent months.”
“He has done some filming over the last couple of weeks, but the understanding is that those scenes will be his last.
“He has been very vocal in his opinions about the allegations and about the way in which the inquiries have been handled by the bosses. He now feels his position on the show is untenable.”
