Emmerdale fans branded Harriet Finch the ‘worst vicar’ as she’s been trying to prevent DI Malone’s body from being discovered.

Earlier this year, Harriet buried the dodgy detective’s body in the village graveyard after he was killed by Dawn Taylor.

Harriet feared Malone’s body would be found and has desperately tried to stop the exhumation.

In last night’s episode (Tuesday, December 15) Harriet summoned Jean back to the village. She tried to talk about the process of digging up and moving her father’s body.

However Harriet began trying to put Jean off digging up her father’s body by bringing up the cost. She also suggested that she was doing it to make up for the fact she couldn’t attend his funeral.
