Emmerdale spoilers follow.
The following article contains discussion of rape and sexual misconduct that some readers may find upsetting.
Emmerdale has hinted that Victoria Barton's relationship with Luke Posner may not be over, despite their split last night.
Victoria (Isabel Hodgins) decided to end things with Luke yesterday after they'd spent the night together for the first time.
Although Luke was on cloud nine after sleeping with Victoria, she confided in her friend Amy Wyatt about how it didn't feel right for her.
Victoria later told Luke that she wasn't ready for another relationship so soon after her rape ordeal with his brother Lee, who has since died.
Despite this, spoilers for next week have suggested that it may not really be the end for Victoria and Luke.
Luke's mother Wendy (Susan Cookson) is particularly keen to see the pair back together, convinced that their relationship is worth fighting for.
Wendy speaks to Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) about the situation, setting him the challenge of finding a way to bring Luke and Victoria back together again.
Bob has feelings for Wendy, so will he go all-out to impress her? And is there any way forward for Luke and Victoria?
Max Parker, who plays Luke, recently told Digital Spy and other media that he thinks there's more to explore with his character in the future.
Speaking at an Emmerdale press day, he said: "I relate Luke a lot to myself. He's very assured, he's very cheeky and a showman, but there's definitely some cogs broken inside.
"It doesn't necessarily mean he's going to be a bad guy, but it means that he needs something. He needs someone like Victoria. He needs purpose, or maybe he needs to be fighting to be the favourite child. I don't think you've seen all sides of Luke just yet."
The actor has also revealed that he originally auditioned for the role of Jamie Tate before landing the part of Luke.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
