Emmerdale spoilers: Pregnant Victoria Barton reels as her rapist's mum hints at a custody battle

Victoria Barton revealing that she wants to leave Emmerdale

Victoria is determined to leave Emmerdale when rapist Lee's mum Wendy hints at a custody battle… (second part of our preview of tonight's episode)

As the nightmare at Keepers continues, Emmerdale's Robert (Ryan Hawley) tries to distract the estate agent while Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins) and Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) get rid of bad penny Wendy (Susan Cookson).

But Wendy's not going without saying her piece. She wants to be a part of the baby's life and worse still, she goes on to mention that her son Lee - who raped Victoria but is denying it - might want a share in the child's custody.

It's a terrible blow to Victoria who has made such progress in the dark months following the horrible attack. With that, the pub cook is more determined than ever to move away from the village - and Diane decides she's going to help her.
