COLLEEN King passed away off-screen, leaving her son Tom distraught in the Dales.
However, it becomes increasingly clear that the Emmerdale hunk is keeping a huge secret and his fiancée Belle Dingle is on to him.
Members of the Dingle clan have been rocked by the sudden death of Craig Reed, who was seemingly murdered before being left on the Home Farm estate.
Lydia Dingle decided to investigate and figure out who the killer was as she was convinced somebody close to her was responsible.
Her list of suspects included members of her own family, including Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper).
However, when she was interrogated, it was revealed that Belle had agreed to marry her partner, Thomas King (James Chase).
