Ofcom are considering whether or not to investigate "Emmerdale" after 39 viewers complained about Victoria Barton's sexual assault scene on last night's (08.05.19) episode.
The UK communication's regulator are looking into the complaints after Isabel Hodgins" alter-ego had her hair violently pulled by evil Lee - played by Kris Mochrie - before being pushed onto her bed.
Viewers then saw Victoria's bedroom door from outside and heard her scream, before the camera returned to footage of her lying on her bed after the horrific act.
An Ofcom spokesperson told The Sun Online: "We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate."
Victoria had only met menacing Lee just hours earlier in a nightclub, and he persuaded her to let him walk her home after they got chucked out of their taxi.
He soon turned when inside her house, despite her constantly telling him to leave, becoming aggressive.
Some viewers also took to social media to express their concern at the scenes.
One tweeted: "this is honestly f***ing disgusting #Emmerdale (sic)"
Another posted: "#emmerdale dear lord bit early for this"
And one wrote: "That was so scary wtf #Emmerdale"
This comes just weeks after Ofcom received 84 complaints over Emmerdale's teacher-pupil grooming storyline involving Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) and Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant).
A spokesperson said: "We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate."
