Connor first appeared in Emmerdale last month after Harriet was locked in the church. Harriet gave her old work colleague a list of names of people who could be stalking her and he would look into it.

He appeared in tonight’s episode (May 3) with the names of those who could potentially be after Harriet.

When Harriet saw the name Will Taylor she told Geoff it must be a computer glitch as he died just after he got out of prison, however Geoff broke the news that Will was actually still alive and free.

Harriet then told Dawn, unaware her ex-stepdaughter knew her dad was still alive.

Dawn gave the performance of a lifetime pretending to be shocked, but she soon went to see her dad to warn him that Harriet and the police now know he’s alive and could be her stalker.

Harriet was a police officer before her days as a vicar and had a fake relationship with know drug dealer Will Taylor, who knew Harriet as Michelle.

Once Harriet got enough evidence, she had Will sent down but now he is back for his revenge.

Emmerdale airs Monday to Friday at 7pm with an extra episode on Thursday at 8pm.
