Victoria will be left questioning the state of her marriage in next week’s episodes of Emmerdale when she discovers all about husband Adam’s recent kiss with Vanessa.
Show bosses are keeping the exact details of how Victoria finds out under wraps, but suffice it to say that once Emma gets hold of the incendiary gossip, it isn’t long before word has reached Victoria’s ears.
“There’s a massive sense of betrayal,” says actress Isabel Hodgins, “and it will make Victoria take stock of their relationship.”
Fans of the ITV soap have already seen the pair dealt a blow after finding out that they can’t have children together thanks to Adam’s low sperm count. But the possibility that they’d be able to work through the problems look set to be thrown into doubt when Victoria learns that Adam turned to Vanessa in their time of crisis.
“Her reaction isn’t great! I think if your boyfriend or husband has got form with someone else, you’re always going to have a bit of a bee in your bonnet about it,” added the actress. “So I just think that it’s going to bring up everything that they went through the last time, with all the Johnny mess.”
As long-time viewers know, Adam’s past dalliance with Vanessa left him thinking that he was the father of her baby Johnny. And it seems that old emotional wounds will come to the surface in the wake of this latest revelation – all of which leads to a showdown between Victoria and Vanessa:
‘Words get exchanged with Vanessa. Victoria’s very good at being mouthy when she’s not happy, so she gets a good talking to,” says the actress, “but Victoria’s reaction is more to be heartbroken than be out seeking revenge. She’s just thinking, ‘how could Adam have done this to us?'”
