There's horror heading for Emmerdale next week as the police make a grim discovery...

Next week sees Emmerdale residents left reeling after the remains of a baby are found… but which villager knows more about the grim discovery than they’re letting on?

Every soap fan knows that Emmerdale’s far from the sleepy country village that it looks like, but next week’s grim discovery will shock even the most loyal of viewers.

The following day Jessie is given the unenviable task of preparing for a police press conference to break the news to the local community, but as she gets ready to face the cameras, the police make a breakthrough back at the station.
