Victoria reveals she's keeping her baby

Victoria’s trip away with Robert in Emmerdale hasn’t been the cure-all for the terrifying attack that left her pregnant and broken, but it has given her some thinking time.

And Diane and Robert (Ryan Hawley) are left reeling tonight when Victoria – who’s started suffering from morning sickness – tells them that she’s decided to keep the baby.

The bombshell doesn’t sit well with fiery Robert, who’s struggled to control his rage about the attack since the moment he found out.

It falls to Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) to try to keep the peace between the siblings. But she’s wrong to give Victoria (Isabel Hodgins) hope that Robert might change his mind. When Victoria runs into him, he’s upset to see her so distressed, but he’s unable to support her decision not to have a termination.
