Emmerdale viewers saw DI Malone (played by Mark Womack) land on the ITV soap earlier this year as a man on a mission as it soon emerged he had a past connection with both Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) and her boyfriend Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) but for two very different reasons. Now, with Harriet and Malone rekindling their past romance in secret, will there be danger ahead for the vicar if the truth comes out?

Since his arrival in the Dales, ITV viewers have been questioning the truth surrounding Malone and Harriet’s past. 

Although it was soon obvious Malone and Will had a chequered history, his relationship with Harriet seemed much warmer. 

The dodgy copper was drafted in after Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) accidentally shot his long-lost son Nate (Jurrell Carter).

However, there was another purpose to his appearance after he turned up on Harriet and Will’s doorstep.

The pair had mixed reactions to seeing the blast from the past and Will has secretly been repaying his wrongdoings to the copper in a series of risky jobs.

In recent episodes, Harriet has been enjoying Malone’s company as it emerged the pair used to be lovers when they were in the police force together. 

Despite her romance with Will, she has willingly gone behind his back to reignite things with Malone – but will there be huge consequences?

Today, Katherine who plays Harriet appeared on This Morning with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes to discuss what was ahead for her character. 

Wednesday night’s episode saw Harriet arrive at a hotel where Malone was waiting for her but viewers were left on a cliffhanger.

It seems the affair is set to continue after Katherine hinted there was trouble in store but could it end up leaving her without a job?

Asked whether Harriet’s morality was accentuated due to her position at the church, Katherine said: “Well, I always say she’s a vicar, not a saint.

“The thing I like about Harriet is she is flawed. Just a normal woman in so many ways and does give into temptation now and then… she’s got a big taste of bad boys!”

Speaking about her affair with Malone, she explained how Harriet’s feelings over the truth about her lover’s past, adding: “When they worked together in police they had a fling but she didn’t know he was a bent cop then.

“She’s only just discovered that since all this stuff’s come out with Will – there’s some sort of deep feeling there.

“I think she’s so frustrated with Will, sick of the lies, doesn’t know if they have a future, thinks she’s just strayed off the path.

However, if Harriet continues to stray and Malone leads her down a darker path, could her career be at risk?

Viewers saw Harriet and Malone hook up in secret in the church vestry earlier this week and there seems no sign of their affair coming to an end. 

Will Harriet’s temptations get her into trouble and see her in danger of losing her job as the village vicar?

Katherine also teased the end of the storyline, which viewers will see left on a cliffhanger due to the filming having been halted earlier this month.

She confessed: “I’m not involved in the isolation episodes but hopefully we’ll get back and continue this storyline, we’ve left it on a real cliffhanger – a two-month cliffhanger is too much, even for me!”

Emmerdale airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm on ITV.
