Emmerdale spoilers follow.
Emmerdale has announced plans for Belle Dingle and Tom King to have a major Valentine's Day storyline.
The couple will set a date of February 14 for their wedding after a surprise proposal in the coming weeks.
News of Belle and Tom growing closer is sure to concern Emmerdale fans, after an upsetting flashback saw their relationship take a dark turn last month.
Speaking to Digital Spy and other media at an Emmerdale press event this week, show producer Laura Shaw explained: "Belle and Tom are going to move on in their relationship.
"I think we've already hinted a little bit that there may be more going on in their relationship, but what we will see is them building their relationship.
"Wedding bells come in on Valentine's Day, of course, because we're a soap so we have to do weddings on Valentine's Day.
"But is it going to be their happy ever after? We'll have to see."
Last month's flashback saw Tom become irrational and angry when Belle rejected his marriage proposal.
The scenes culminated in Tom shockingly pushing Belle to the ground, which left her bleeding as she hit her head.
When Tom apologised, Belle chose not to tell her family what had happened between them.
The couple agreed to move on and forget the nasty incident, although Emmerdale viewers have speculated that the scenes marked the beginning of an important issue-based storyline.
Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
