An Emmerdale star has been given the boot for gross misconduct on the ITV soap. In a dramatic turn of events, Victoria Sugden found herself jobless after a mishap in the kitchen.

Following her break up with Jacob Gallagher, she accidentally shattered a glass while making a pizza. Despite believing she had cleaned up all the shards, Jai Sharma discovered a piece under the pepperoni - which he had sneakily placed there - and promptly dismissed Victoria.

Despite her protests, Jai insisted she leave but offered two months' wages and a reference for her future employer. He was under pressure to sack her or face Pollard revealing his theft of his brother's inheritance.

This follows Victoria's difficult decision to end her relationship with Jacob, spurred by his mother Leyla's stern warning that she was holding him back. Jacob had previously declined a study placement in Berlin to stay with Victoria.

Feeling obligated, Victoria ended their relationship to allow Jacob to pursue his own life. Her decision left him heartbroken, begging her to reconsider, reports the Mirror.

The past few months have seen a whirlwind of emotions for Jacob and Victoria, who kept their budding romance a secret for some time due to concerns about David's reaction, as he had previously dated her. Emmerdale fans were left reeling after the shock exits of David Metcalfe and his son Jacob, played by Matthew Wolfenden and Joe-Warren Plant respectively.

David's departure followed the revelation of his son's secret relationship with Victoria. Joe-Warren Plant, who has been mentored by Matthew Wolfenden since his arrival on the soap, expressed his sadness at his co-star's exit. "I'm gutted! I've learnt everything from him. I had no previous acting experience, so everything came directly from Matthew. It's sad, but we'll keep in touch - he's my best friend! ".

Discussing Jacob's future without his father figure, Plant commented: "It's nice to see the change in conversations everything's a bit more grown-up and they talk more on a mature level. They've always got on, David's a great father, but Jacob's enjoying spending more time with David as a single dad ... It's going to be strange not having him around!

"I think he'll have to spend more time with Leyla and get used to not having a father figure in his vicinity. Jacob loves David to pieces and there's good energy between them. Jacob will struggle without him! "
