The crazed corpse bride famously hurled her husband off a bridge and onto the late Ashley Thomas’ (played by John Middleton) speeding car, causing an almighty pile-up and putting dozens of lives in danger.
With Ashley’s dementia plucking the memory of Emma (Gillian Kearney) standing over him in her blood-soaked wedding, Emma thought the long-suffering vicar had taken their secret to the grave.
Though, she was sadly mistaken after Iain McLeod revealed Laurel Potts (Charlotte Bellamy) will uncover the tape which saw Emma accidentally confess everything.
Naturally, the news will devastate the Barton family but actor Joe Gill suggested his character Finn Barton will sympathise with his murderous mother after revealing his own “stalkery” behaviour over Kasim Sabet (Ethan Kai).

What he did was quite psychotic, in a sense
“What he did was quite psychotic, in a sense,” Joe explained. “He did show sides of his mother through that, which hasn’t sort of been done before. He was always sort of the innocent one and he did sort of show a darker edge to him.
“So how will they react? What will they do? I think, obviously its unforgivable what she’s done, but will Finn sort of connect with her in that way? We’ll have to see…”
As for who will take it the worst, Ross Barton star Michael Parr added: “It’s a weird one, because when we all came into it, it was Ross who had a major issue with his dad but then that wasn’t really explored when James passed away, so it’s hard.

Will Emma Barton confess to James Barton's murder in Emmerdale?
“I’ve loved her for the past couple of years but there was 20 years of damage that had been done.”
Joe chipped in: “I think Finn would be really, really upset because I did all that thing with Kasim because there was a hole in my life – of a male void that was left from my dad.
“I had a few really emotional scenes with Emma in which she consolidated me and helped me through that. So for her to be the reason as to why I did all that stuff without telling me and she was the person I turned to, I think that would be really really tough for Finn to deal with.”
