Emmerdale spoilers: Is Victoria Sugden PREGNANT?

Emmerdale, Victoria Sugden

Victoria has been hiding a secret from her boyfriend Ellis...a pregnancy test! Is there a chance the village chef could be preggers?

Double-bill. Victoria Sugden gave Ellis Chapman the runaround when he first arrived in the village and made a play for her. But now the loved-up couple are definitely official...and maybe more than they know!

Unknown to boyfriend Ellis, Victoria has a pregnancy test kit and is in a panic about the test results! But when she tries to reach her fella on the phone, little does she know he's been having a medical emergency of his own after his brother Billy Fletcher began having a panic attack - after Victoria locked the pair of them in the Portakabin hoping they would settle their differences!
