EMMERDALE viewers fear Robert Sugden will get years added to his prison sentence after he drunkenly lashed out at Al Chapman in tonight’s episode.
Having already been rejected by Al when he declined his offer to import a car from France for him, Robert sulkily returned to the scrapyard where Victoria found him chugging cans of beer.
His mood was made worse when Kim Tate and Al antagonistically trespassed on their property.
When Vic told them to leave, Al said: “You’re that lass that Billy was trying to help, aren’t you?
“You need to work on your people skills.”
Robert rose to his feet threateningly, while Victoria suggested she’d call the police if they returned uninvited again.
Kim coolly said: “She’s feisty, I quite like her though. I heard she went out with Ellis (Al’s son) for a while. Just think, you could have ended up related.”
Al, unaware that Victoria is carrying her rapist Lee Posner’s baby, replied: “Yeah well, thank God for small mercies. As long as that kid she’s expecting isn’t his.”
Robert rugby tackled him to the ground as Aaron Dingle sprinted in to split up the fight.
As he got up, Robert screamed: “She was raped. Is that funny enough for you?
“In her own home by someone who seemed like he was alright.”
An apologetic Kim and Al left before any more damage could be done.
