Emmerdale fans are set to see Robert Sugden (played by Ryan Hawley) head after Victoria’s (Isabel Hodgins) rapist Lee and get his revenge after attacking his sister and getting her pregnant.
And Robert has not exactly been understanding after his sister announced her plans to keep her baby.
Now, it seems Robert will turn his anger away from Victoria and focus it on rapist Lee, aiming to get revenge.
The actress, Isabel Hodgins spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk during The British Soap Awards 2019 and revealed Lee might not be safe from Robert’s wrath.
Speaking about the rape and what it means for Robert, Victoria said: “I think she’s dealing with it!
“If she’s left to her own devices; [her thought process is] it’s happened, there’s nothing she can do about it and she just wants to get on with her life.
“She doesn’t want to let it define her or ruin her life, but Robert isn’t for that. Robert wants revenge and [Lee to get] comeuppance for what he did, so unfortunately she can’t just get on with it because she’s got to deal with him. And being pregnant!
“I think he wants to teach him a lesson and then I think when it doesn’t work he just gets more and more desperate. How it ends, I’m assuming it will be a bit of a mess because it’s desperation.”
Could Lee end up dead after Robert finds him and takes out his anger?
He was evidently angered by the fact she was planning to keep the baby and raise the little one.
The maternal Victoria has chosen to keep the baby as she is single and unaware when her next chance to raise a baby would be.
She also revealed to the Express.co.uk Ellis’ (Asan N’Jie) potential role in bringing up the baby.
Victoria’s ex Ellis could be set to support her as she welcomes the baby into the world.
Whether the pair get back together as a couple is unknown, but he could be set to play a more important role in Victoria’s baby’s life than her brother Robert.
In the interview, she also revealed what having a baby means to her character.
EMMERDALE SPOILERS: WILL ADAM BARTON RETURN AND BE WITH VICTORIA?
She said: “She’s obviously got a very maternal instinct.
“She’s been very vocal about wanting a baby and I think as soon as that test came up pregnant, she knew what she was going to do; she was having that baby. That’s all she wants, she’s got no Adam but she can have a baby.”
As for what Isabel hopes her character’s future will play out to be, she revealed: “I want her to be happy, and be the best mum she can be. I want her to get over this and life her best life.”
Fans can expect a lot of twists and turns as Victoria deals with the effects of her rape, whilst bring pregnant.
