Luke Salter was a teenage boy who Belle Dingle met at a New Year's Eve Party. Her bestfriend Gemma Andrews advised Belle not to go out with Luke, as he was her ex, but after a talk Charity Sharma, Belle decided to out with Luke anyway. Belle soon felt guilty when Gemma caught her and Luke hanging out together. Belle's older brother Cain Dingle warned Luke to keep his hands to himself and not try anything on with Belle but Belle's mother Lisa Dingle insisted that she invite Luke of to their house so that she and Zak could get to know him. Belle felt pressured to sleep with Luke so she told him that she had an empty house the following day, but Debbie Dingle sees them together and warned Lisa who charged round to the house and threw him out. Luke later dumped Belle.
