ITV Emmerdale fans predict Noah Dingle prison twist as they're left unhappy at sentence

Emmerdale fans finally found out Noah Dingle's fate as he was sentenced for stalking his ex Chloe Harris. Viewers of the ITV soap were horrified last month when the teen's shocking behaviour was finally exposed.

Noah found himself furious with his mum after he discovered she was the one who gave him up to the police after his stalking of Chloe was uncovered. Chloe Harris discovered that her former love interest had been tracking her every move.

Noah had been taking photos of her without her knowing and even took her keys and made his way into the house she shares with Amy and Kerry Wyatt, bugging her room and listening to their private conversation. Chloe only became suspicious when she found her keys down his sofa as they hung out at his mum, Charity's house.

She then checked his laptop where she found hundreds of photos of herself as well as audio recordings and a photo Noah had taken of himself in her room. Then, as she tried to get away with his laptop, Noah lost his cool and in her attempts to leave, Chloe fell onto the kitchen floor. Noah pounced and tried to get her to stop screaming by putting his hand over her mouth just as Charity came in.

Eventually, the police were involved after Charity wanted her son to be held responsible for his crimes, ruining their relationship in the process with Noah saying during Tuesday night's trip to the Dales that he 'doesn't' have a mum anymore' as Belle whisked him off to his sentencing.

While his lawyer was hopeful Noah would receive a suspended sentence for his crime, things didn't quite go his way and he still tried to defend his actions while in the dock in front of the judge. The character then ended up in tears as he was told he faced three months in prison and was sent down in front of his mum, her boyfriend Mack, and Belle.

Despite wanting him to get prison time, Emmerdale fans weren't impressed. @JamesDawson911 tweeted: "3 months lol should've been 3 years with parole after 5 years." @JordanPhelps21 commented: "3 months you have gotta be joking me!!! #Emmerdale."

@secretking19 wrote: "3 months is bloody lenient if you ask me, Noah. #emmerdale." @ACNHIsland2020 shared: "3 months? Probably the shortest prison sentence ever given #Emmerdale."

But fans also think there is a twist on the way and that Chloe's gangster father, who is currently serving time in prison, could be making an appearance.

@man18united said: "Chloe's Dad will be waiting for Noah then I guess?" @VanityPending tweeted: "Cya later Noah! I’m sure you’ll survive 3 months! Chloes dad or Bail’s incoming #emmerdale." @WilliamWillh predicted: "So, I take it Noah's cell mate will be Chloe's father? #Emmerdale."
