Aggravated damages would be appropriate in this case since the pub regular had wilfully and maliciously caused Emma distress. In Wilkinson v Downton [1897] 2 Q.B. 57, it was established that a claimant can recover aggravated damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress when the defendant's actions are particularly egregious. The court in Wilkinson v Downton awarded aggravated damages due to the defendant's malicious conduct that resulted in severe emotional and physical harm to the claimant. 

Key Point: The Wilkinson v Downton case is a foundational case in the area of intentional infliction of emotional distress. It highlights that when a defendant's malicious actions cause significant psychological harm, the court can award aggravated damages to compensate for the increased suffering caused by the defendant's conduct.
