VICTORIA Sugden is dealt another blow in Emmerdale next week when rapist Lee Posner’s mum Wendy writes to her demanding a DNA test.
The unexpected correspondence leaves the chef – who’s played by Isabel Hodgins – feeling upset after her plans to escape the village start to take shape.
She’s delighted when she finds out that her offer on a rental has been accepted as she plans to sell Keepers Cottage, but when she gets the letter from Wendy, she’s knocked for six again.
But Emmerdale fans are convinced the DNA test will hold some surprising results for Victoria and reveal the baby is her ex-lover Ellis Chapman’s child and rapist Lee.
Victoria had a 12-week scan last week and learned her baby is due in January. Vic’s rape was shown on the episode which aired on April 25th and viewers pointed out that the character would therefore only be 10 weeks pregnant now.
Victoria was casually dating Ellis [Asan N’Jie] before the attack occurred, and attentive fans believe that the due date is a clue that he is the true father of the baby.

Flocking to social media, one viewer asked: “Can someone please explain to me how Victoria is already 12 weeks pregnant on Emmerdale?”
It just doesn’t add up – didn’t she have a drunken night with Ellis?”
Another added: “The big night out was 25th April. 10 weeks ago. So if she is 12 weeks pregnant is Ellis the father?”
A third said: “If Emmerdale is running completely up to date, Victoria would be 10 weeks pregnant not 12.
“She’s gonna go into ‘early labour’ over Christmas and give birth to a baby that looks suspiciously like Ellis. Calling it now.”
Wendy – played by Susan Cookson – arrived in the village last week, confronting Victoria over her ‘lies’ about her son.
And this week, fans will see her continue to harass Vic as she insists she wants to play a role in her grandchild’s life.
She leaves Victoria feeling desperate to get away from the Dales when she tells her that Lee is thinking about going for custody of the baby when it’s born.
