Emmerdale fans were left disgusted this week when the connection between Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) and DI Mark Malone (Mark Womack) was revealed. Initially everyone thought they had been former colleagues, after all Harriet – who’s real name is Michelle – used to be a police officer, and she was assigned an undercover job to take down Will Taylor (Dean Andrew) and the drugs gang he was running. But, in a couple of scenes this week, it seems Harriet and Malone were more than work pals, they were former lovers. So could there be a child between them? The actor who plays Malone said there is a possibility….

Malone arrived in the village a few months ago when his gun – which he had given to Will for safekeeping – had been involved in a shooting.
The gun, which was being kept in Harriet’s house, was accidentally found by Dawn Taylor’s (Olivia Bromley) son Lucas, and Harriet demanded it was removed.
She asked ex-Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) to dispose of it, but he used it during a Rustlers’ raid on Butlers Farm and Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) was the one who got injured.
After turning up and finding out what happened, Malone saw an opportunity to manipulate several men and get them to work for him to carry out the dodgy deals he had lined up.

Alongside Will, Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) and Cain were roped in and it soon became apparent who was the puppet master.
While Cain is determined to take control of Malone, it seems the corrupt cops downfall has been exposed.
Will starting an affair with Harriet lead to more trouble that it’s worth for the newcomer?
During an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, the actor who plays Malone spoke out about this storyline detail.
When asked what the link is between Malone and Harriet, Mark said: “There’s definitely history because [they’ve] worked together.
“[They] were very close in terms that, she she Malone’s undercover [police officer], and [involved in] lots of kind of drug and gang related stuff.
“So they got really close, I think that close working colleagues might be more,” he teased.
And this week, those watching at home learnt just that.

Discussing their former romantic relationship, a time frame for when they were originally together or for how long can only be speculated.
And when Mark was asked whether Malone and Harriet could have had a child together, he replied: Well, that could be possible.”
Should someone from both their pasts turn up in the Dales, it sure would spell trouble, as they would have a lot of questions to answer from those closet to them.
Or perhaps this could be the perfect way for Cain to take down Malone once and for all?

It comes after Mark revealed Malone’s capabilities.
In recent weeks Malone had Will beaten up and hospitalised, but it seems the corrupt cop could go a lot further and kill someone should they cross him.
Should Cain, Will and Billy be afraid?
