On tonight’s episode of the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, Jacob Gallagher revealed his true feelings for Victoria Sugden, and viewers were not pleased.
The hour-long episode of Emmerdale on Thursday left viewers “cringing” as Jacob, played by Joe Warren-Plant, revealed his true feelings for Victoria Sudgen, played by Isabel Hodgins.
Fans have been speculating for weeks that the two are in a relationship, and they were right to be suspicious.
In the most recent episode, when Jacob acknowledged his feelings for Victoria and praised her beauty, the two almost kissed.
The problem is that Jacob’s father David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) and Victoria once dated.
Although David is not Jacob’s biological father, he has always referred to Victoria as his stepmother and has always called the shopkeeper Jacob’s dad.
The situation is made more complicated by David’s apparent desire to win Victoria back from the ITV soap opera after she dumped him the previous year after discovering his deceitful lies.
On the most recent episode of the soap opera, David entered the room as Jacob was joining Victoria for dinner, preventing them from sharing a kiss.
Fans of the soap opera Emmerdale flocked to social media to discuss the “sick” plotline, which they believe is connected to David’s departure from the show.
After almost two decades on screen, David actor Matthew announced earlier this year that he would be leaving the soap opera.
Joe posted a picture of a happy person dancing on X, formerly known as Twitter, with the caption “Me when this story ends and the pair of them are axed.”
This made Michelle cringe, she said. Jacob has liked Victoria ever since when? It’s arbitrary. (sic)
It seems like they’d make a cute couple, but Catherine wrote: “I’m also cringing for all the reasons she just said.”
“This seems a little off to me, as Victoria wasn’t far from being his stepmum,” Mitchell Hurd continued.
“This is seriously making me ill,” Sinead said. When I watch this, I get sick! #Emmerdale.”
As Reece put it, “#Emmerdale really are trying to make the viewers sick.”
Will Victoria keep her relationship with Jacob going or will she break it off for David’s sake?
