Scene from Emmerdale ITV

On last night's (November 30) episode of Emmerdale, Tom Waterhouse's (Ned Porteous) secret agenda was finally exposed. However, viewers were left surprised for a completely different reason.

Tom, the millionaire businessman, was revealed as the person behind the golf course project that will leave the Dingle family homeless.

Tom made the big announcement about his plans for the golf course to a room full of powerful councillors and businesspeople, confirming what the viewers of the soap had been suspecting all along.

Interestingly, Max Branning's (Jake Wood) revenge in Eastenders seemed very similar to that of Tom's storyline and viewers on Twitter were quick to draw parallels with the BBC soap.

In a previous episode of Eastenders, it was revealed that Max was in cahoots with millionaire James Willmott-Brown (William Boyde) to buy properties in Walford and then bring them down.

Here's how Twitter responded to this seeming plot theft:
