Wednesday night’s episode of Emmerdale saw Victoria lose her temper with Zak Dingle following her heartbreaking split with Adam Barton.
But at the start of the show, Victoria asked Lachlan White where his mother Chrissie White was, saying she “needed her advice”.
She said: “I need her advice. I’ve still got a million and one things to do for tomorrow’s vegan market. What I really need is another pair of hands.”
Viewers were not impressed though, with Chrissie being an enemy of the Sugdens after she framed Andy Sugden for a shooting which led to his exit from the soap.

Tonight, worried about their father and his money woes, Belle and Sam Dingle encouraged Victoria to hire him.
Victoria was prepping food on the kitchen ahead of the vegan festival.
She took on Zak to help her, only for the pair to come to blows and she told him to leave.
Speaking with Belle and her play Lachlan, she was encouraged to give Zak another go.
Lachlan gave her some money to give to Zak as wages.
But viewers were not sure why Victoria was even talking to Lachlan, let alone accepting his money.

With Lachlan involved in Andy’s exit, viewers were stunned Victoria was being so nice to him.
One viewer tweeted: “So Vic is suddenly taking money from Lachlan and wanting to work with Chrissie? Has she forgotten about ANDY?”
Another agreed: “Why is Vic so determined to be involved with the family that ruined her brother’s life?! Literally makes NO sense.”
A third wrote: “I find it odd Vic wants to work with Chrissie after the whole Andy thing but I guess time passes.”
