Emmerdale viewers ‘work out’ Victoria’s mystery lover causes character’s exit

Lorraine: Emmerdale's Jacob fights for his life

Emmerdale fans have been theorising about David Metcalfe’s (played by Matthew Wolfenden) exit from the beloved soap after almost two decades.

They believe his ex Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins) drives him out of the Yorkshire Dales when her secret lover is exposed.

Victoria has been getting messages from a mystery person, leading some fans to believe they are from Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant).

While David is not Jacob’s biological father, the latter has always referred to his former stepdad as his dad.

Victoria and David may no longer be an item, he might be left feeling hurt if Jacob and his ex are getting cosy.

One Twitter user penned: “It’s probably Jacob who’s texting Victoria.”

Another wrote: “I think someone has a crush on Victoria….his Dad’s ex……#emmerdale.” (sic)

It comes after Jacob actor Joe teased a romance storyline for his character.

He told The Sun: “I think there’s possibly going to be a romance on the cards. It’s been a while since he’s had a girlfriend so it’s due.

“He’ll be sticking with his university work and wants to become that doctor, so he’s focusing on that.

“He’s just trying to enjoy life, he’s been cooped up for too long playing video games so he’s going to get out and explore some relationships.”

Is Victoria the person who has fallen for on the ITV soap or is it another woman entirely?

Victoria was left mortified when she realised she was responsible for Jacob’s allergic reaction on Monday evening.

She rushed to the hospital to apologise to his mother and David and hoped he would pull through with medical support.

David is set to leave the soap in upcoming scenes and has teased it is linked to Victoria – so have fans rumbled the truth already?

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV and ITVX.
