The highly-charged episode also saw Victoria revealing her pain after a difficult birth with their latest heir, Albert.
She told her husband: 'You don’t know what it’s like to look at a child and feel as though you have nothing to offer it. That’s how worthless I felt.'
Coleman, who began her career in Emmerdale, has showcased her vocal abilities before, once singing Happy Birthday in accomplished style to a fan in Toronto in 2015.
Last month, the actress sparked rumours she had become engaged to her Victoria co-star after she was spotted wearing a sparkling ring on her wedding finger.
