Charlotte Bellamy teases trouble for Laurel

"Emmerdale's Charlotte Bellamy has teased there could be danger ahead for her character Laurel Thomas.

Months ago, shocked viewers watched on as Emma Barton (Gillian Kearney) pushed her husband James (Bill Ward) off a bridge and to his death but has been able to live her life without any worries after managing to convince Ashley Thomas (John Middleton), who was suffering from dementia, that he was confused when he saw her standing on the bridge that fateful day.

However, there is a video of Emma trying to confuse Ashley and with the camera having been damaged and Ashley tragically passing away, Emma's secret has been kept so - for now.

Meanwhile, Charlotte has teased the reveal of Emma's secret could have big consequences for Laurel and her son Arthur.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk at the British Soap Awards, Charlotte said: "I don't think the audience will have the appetite for Laurel to find love again, but my story and Alfie's [Clarke] - the little boy who plays my son - our story sort of moves into Emma Barton's comeuppance. Remember we still have the video. So without giving anything away there's a lot more to come there."

Meanwhile, soap boss Iain MacLeod previously revealed there would be a big storyline in store for Laurel in the coming months.

He said: "We were quite aware that after Ashley's death we didn't end up with Charlotte just drumming her fingers wondering where her next big story is coming from, so I'm pleased to report she'll be busy.

"Basically we didn't want the whole family to just sit around and miss Ashley, and we needed to make sure Laurel had a houseful so we added a new ingredient into the house that would be fun. There is also another different kind of story playing for Laurel over the summer which is tied into the resurfacing of the Ashley/Emma Barton home video."
