EMMERDALE’S unlikely lothario Bob Hope grows closer to rapist Lee’s mum Wendy Posner in an upcoming episode after she moves into the village.
Wendy’s threatened by a mystery figure after she moves into the village but she’s offered a pillar of support by Bob in upcoming scenes.
Emmerdale viewers have watched in horror as Victoria’s rapist Lee has continued to haunt their family long after his death.
Lee’s mum Wendy accused Victoria of lying about the rape and played a large part in getting Robert sent down for 14 years.
In upcoming scenes, mum Wendy is set to move into the village and make life unbearable for Victoria.
With an inability to see that her son Lee was anything other than an angel, she’s also been making steps to try and get custody of Victoria’s unborn baby.
In scenes yet to be aired, Wendy will get clear messages that she’s unwelcome in the village when her windows are smashed by a mysterious figure in the night.
The rapist’s mum has few allies in the village, but after her ordeal Bob shows her some neighbourly concern – could it be something more?
Emmerdale viewers know that unlucky-in-love Bob hasn’t always made the wisest choices when it comes to romance.
He’s had a string of marriages – seven with five different wives – as well as an affair with Laurel Thomas on the side.
Could a new romance be on the cards for Wendy or is Bob stirring the pot in the wake of the Sugden family turmoil?
