Emmerdale's Robert Sugden is left crushed when his sister Victoria Barton reveals she’s keeping her rapist's baby.
The chef – who’s played by Isabel Hodgins in the ITV soap – will make the brave decision to tell her friends about her traumatic rape ordeal in Emmerdale next week.
Her shock confession leaves pals struggling to take in the news after Marlon Dingle pushed for answers.
As he grills her, Marlon – played Mark Charnock – is left shocked when Victoria tells him that she was raped back in April following a night out in Hotten with some of the other villagers.
After telling Marlon the truth, Victoria decides to tell her other friends at the pub what happened.
Struggling to find the words to explain what happened with rapist Lee, Victoria tells Matty Barton, Ellis Chapman and Chas and Charity Dingle the events of that fateful night.
After her devastating reveal, Victoria’s friends struggle to take in the news. Victoria also tells them that she’s pregnant as a result of the rape and is planning on keeping the baby.
When she finally tells her brother Robert Sugden – Ryan Hawley – that she is not going to have a
termination, he is furious.
Victoria is left heartbroken when Robert tells her that there is no way he’ll be able to support her decision, even though he can see how much pain his words cause her.
Fans were left shaken by hard to watch scenes earlier this month that showed Victoria being raped in her own home by Lee.
They were even more horrified when the sicko sent her a text the next morning, telling her he’d "had fun."
Victoria revealed her ordeal during a special flashback episode where she confided in mother-in-law Moira Barton – Natalie J. Robb.
She reported Lee to the police but with no evidence of the crime, it doesn’t look like he’ll face justice for his actions.
