Emmerdale’s Arthur Thomas (played by Alfie Clarke) might only be 12-years-old but over the last year, he has got himself into a lot more trouble than most kids. At an upcoming camping trip, Dotty Thomas’ (Tilly-Rue Foster) life will be put in danger by her brother and Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) will blame Arthur. After a shocking revelation, it seems Arthur could be a lot more dangerous than anyone could have originally believed putting Laurel’s life in jeopardy.

As Emmerdale fans know, Arthur is Laurel and Ashley Thomas’ (John Middleton) son, and of course, the two also share their daughter Dotty.
Over the last few years, Laurel, Dotty, and Arthur were forced to face up to a life without Ashley after a devastating battle with dementia.
His condition deteriorated quickly, but after being hospitalised, the doctors revealed Ashley had contracted pneumonia.
Ashley wasn’t strong enough to fight the affliction and the vicar died shortly after, devastating the Emmerdale residents.

Losing a father would be hard enough for anyone, let alone a young boy, and Arthur quickly started acting out in the wake of his father’s death.
In upcoming scenes though, after months of bullying Archie Brekle (Kai Assi) due to his mother and Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) getting together, Laurel is going to make a devastating admission.
During a birthday celebration for Rishi Sharma (Bhasker Patel), Dotty will be left in terrible danger as she sleeps in a tent next to the campfire slowly growing out of control.
Laurel’s first reaction will be to blame Arthur being the eldest of the children and in a shocking turn of events, she will admit to Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) she is scared of her son.
Actress Charlotte, who plays Laurel, has revealed what is coming up in the ITV soap for the mother and son hinting Arthur could take his revenge on her too far.
Charlotte explained: “Arthur’s told Laurel he wouldn’t ever do anything like this again.
“She doesn’t trust him anymore, not that she would ever admit that to anyone but she knows what he is capable of.
“If she thought about it, she knows he wouldn’t deliberately hurt his sister but deep down I think she thinks Arthur would deliberately hurt Archie.
“So, she is totally exasperated by this because really she is on her own and she feels suddenly that she is sinking.

“This is maybe bigger than she can handle and she admits to Manpreet that she is scared of her son and he is only 12 so the story takes on a different turn.”
Charlotte added her newest issue is that counselling obviously hasn’t worked on Arthur and in upcoming scenes, she will go to the police about Arthur.
Could this be the start of a more sinister storyline as Arthur plots his revenge on his own mother?

Of course, viewers will remember the harrowing bullying storyline Arthur got himself caught up in at the end of last year.
After months of unexplained cuts and bruises, Arthur was exposed for his abusive actions towards Archie.
Jai and Laurel were horrified when the abuse was finally uncovered, but if Arthur was able to abuse someone younger than him surely he could cause a lot more upset at home.
Is Laurel safe in her own home or is it time for her to send her son away for good?
