Emmerdale viewers were left reeling after Harriet got intimate with DI Malone in the village church.

Emmerdale viewers have complained to Ofcom after an episode that saw vicar Harriet get down and dirty with evil DI Malone in the church - with just a curtain separating her from parishioners.

Viewers couldn't believe their eyes at the steamy encounter, which saw Harriet, played by Katherine Dow Blyton, spend an afternoon with the corrupt policeman, played by Mark Womack.
