Emmerdale spoilers: Kiss me! Victoria Sugden makes a move on Matty Barton

Emmerdale, Matty Barton, Victoria Sugden

Having both been keeping quiet about their secret feelings for each other, will romance be on the cards when Victoria tries to kiss Matty?

Having both now ruined each other's chance of romance with other people, maybe Victoria and Matty should come clean and admit they both want to be more than just good friends?

Of course, the situation is a bit complicated, considering Victoria is still technically still married to Matty's brother Adam, who is on the run as a fugitive. Plus Matty is transgender and was previously Victoria's frenemy Hannah Barton.

But with the friends now living under the same roof, the pair find themselves getting cosy together on the sofa, and Victoria decides the time is right to make a move on Matty! But how will he react when she tries to kiss him?

Meanwhile, it's not looking good for Belle. After her killer boyfriend Lachlan forced her to flee the village with him, Belle has ended up hurt and lying in the road...

And Marlon is still dealing with the unexpected arrival of girlfriend Jessie's son Ellis. Jessie is disappointed when she hears Ellis has dropped out of university and doesn't want to go back. But she's pleased her son will be sticking around in the village when Marlon offers to let the lad move into his spare room.
