Lee raped Victoria

Emmerdale viewers cheered on Robert Sugden as he hit rapist Lee Posner over the head with a shovel.

In last night's episodes of Emmerdale (July 30 2019), Victoria agreed to give her attacker the money he was demanding in return for him giving up rights to the baby, but Vic refused to give him a public apology.

Vic offered Lee £10,000 but he demanded double.

Victoria's brother gave him the £10k and would give him the other half when Lee told his mum he was giving up rights to the baby.

Vic begged Lee to admit what he did just once however, Lee said: "You know what's scary? I actually think you believe it.

To be fair it's nothing short of what Lee deserves.

"I feel sorry for the next bloke you do this to. I mean, really I should hang on for that apology."

As Vic went to lunge at Lee, Robert stopped her and told Lee to get out of his house.

As they stood in the doorway, Lee said to Robert: "Well that was fun wasn't it?"

But as Robert replied: "No, no it really wasn't," Lee responded with: "Well sometimes no doesn't mean no does it? Just adds to it."

Lee then continued to make disgusting comments about what he did to Victoria: "I mean is it really rape when they love it as much as your sister did?

"And I even gave her a nice little souvenir to remember me by. Bye. Uncle Robert."

Robert followed Lee out of his house with a murderous look in his eyes and the pair soon started fighting

Lee continued to wind Robert up by saying things like "your sister fought harder than this."

When Robert told Lee he wasn't walking away from this, Lee replied: "Oh but I am, and twenty grand richer. Baby maker, money maker, I wonder who the next lucky lady is going to be?"

As he walked away, Robert came up behind him and smacked him over the head with a shovel, knocking him unconscious.
