Is Harriet leaving Emmerdale?

As she breaks down in tears, Harriet asks Charles to break the news to the Bishop that she’s done with the church for good.

Moira (Natalie J. Robb) later steps in and tells Charles that Harriet is in no state to make such a huge decision about her future.

Meanwhile, actress Katherine Dow Bylton recently said she fears for her character after she got involved in the murder of Detective Inspector Malone.

Dawn killed Malone in self defence, with Harriet helping to bury his body in the local graveyard, before moving it to the grounds of Home Farm.

After her character’s crimes, Harriet told The Sun earlier this month: “You always worry that your days might be numbered.

“There have got to be consequences, whether that happens a year down the line or two years down the line, you can’t get away with murder.”

She added: “But I’ll stay for as long as they want me to stay. I love the show and the role; thank heavens for it.”

Before bagging her role on Emmerdale in 2013, the 56-year-old appeared as Sally Hunter on Hollyoaks between 2001 and 2005.

Katherine has also had minor roles in Coronation Street, The Royal and Where The Heart Is amongst others.

She even previously appeared in Emmerdale as an unnamed Doctor who treated Roy Glover after he severed his fingers.
