The much loved character initially set off in search of pregnant Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell), who had gone into labour during the storm.

Newly married Kim Tate (Claire King) also went out to look for her, but Harriet took a fall in the woods and became trapped by her quad bike.

Kim found Harriet and she managed to free her but a bolt of lightning struck, knocking them both out and killing Harriet.

After leaving the soap, Katherine told The Sun: "I loved playing the vicar and the fact that she was flawed and she was a bit off the wall.

"She had a sense of humour and I loved the character. I will very much miss playing her but she's with me obviously. We're not too dissimilar."

Liv (Isobel Steele) became the second character to die when she was pinned up against a wall by a caravan caught in the wind.

Vinny - played by Bradley Johnson - was forced to say his final goodbyes as she slipped away right in front of him.

Following Liv’s heartbreaking final scenes, Emmerdale shared a video of Isobel where she said it’s been the ‘best seven years of her life’.

In the clip, Isobel says: "Hey everyone, I assume you've now watched the episode where Liv's died. I hope it made you cry. I definitely cried when I read it and it's been a pleasure.

"It's been the best seven years of my life and yeah, it's been all worth it because of you. So thank you so much!"

Who else could die in Emmerdale?

Director Tim O’Mara previously revealed the death toll wouldn't stop at Harriet and Liv, and as many as eight people could be killed.

Speaking to ITV Yorkshire, he said: “No one is safe. There’s a possibility of eight or nine characters not being around for very long.

“We do go to the hospital on a number of visits, a number of people hurt by debris flying around the village, there are accidents in the woods, trees falling on people.

“There are massive accidents at the farm which might attract the attention of one or two characters.

“And there’s a massive problem in the village that will involve two of the other characters.”
