Emmerdale’s Harriet Finch actress worries she will be axed over murder storyline

Emmerdale ‘s Katherine Dow Blyton, who plays vicar Harriet Finch, has revealed she is worried her character will be killed off after she and Dawn Taylor killed corrupt copper DI Malone.

Harriet is struggling to cope with the guilt, along with the fact the grave they buried Malone in is now being exhumed and so Will Taylor had to help move the body.

Katherine also told The Sun some viewers take her role very literally and forget she is not a vicar in real life, asking her for help with things she feels unqualified to answer.

“You always worry that your days might be numbered,” she said of Harriet’s turmoil.

“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.

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

She added that some viewers have been furious at her in real life when they meet her, because of Harriet’s actions.

“Some viewers meet me and say I’m going to get judged by God because of this current storyline!” she said.

“And on Twitter sometimes people think I can be a bit more help than I possibly can be, I don’t know if that’s because they see the dog collar on screen.

“I’ve had a couple of occasions where I’ve thought, ‘Oh gosh, I’m not qualified to help with that sort of problem.’

“I have to point them in the right direction to get help.”

Harriet was recently rocked by the arrival of another vicar, Charles Anderson, and Emmerdale spoilers have confirmed a huge twist involving him and Manpreet Sharma.

Manpreet’s shocking past looks set to be exposed as it’s revealed she once went by a different name, and was presumed dead.

Charles is left shaken when he comes face-to-face with Manpreet, who he knows as Saira, in the village.

Manpreet is distraught by the meeting, but how do they know each other and what happened in the past?

Viewers will no doubt be wondering why he calls her a different name, and why he believes she died – while a time frame is not yet confirmed.

* Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
