LITTLE Clemmie was taken away by social services after her mother passed away.
But there’s a bombshell ahead for Dawn Taylor as she realises who the girl’s father is next week in Emmerdale.
Harriet Finch called social services and had Clemmie taken away for a fresh start with a new family.
Next week, Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) is worried to see his daughter is clearly failing to get over losing Clemmie.
Before long, he suggests she call social services to check in on the youngster and Dawn is determined to follow his advice.

In later scenes, Dawn takes her husband Billy Fletcher by surprise when she tells him she knows who Clemmie’s biological father is – her former partner Alex (Liam Boyle).
This means that Alex, who also happens to be her son Lucas’ father was with Beth while he was involved with her.
Dawn is furious at the betrayal but, the following day, she makes peace with Alex’s infidelity, knowing Clemmie and Lucas should be together.
A tearful Dawn is then shocked when Billy breaks the news to her that he called social services, claiming they’d like custody of Clemmie.

This is a surprise to Dawn as Billy was the first one to suggest Clemmie should be given to social services and she’s grateful for his change of heart.
However, Dawn’s hopes are shattered when social services make it clear they will need Alex’s consent to get custody of Clemmie.
But Billy insists that they should at least try to convince Alex to let them get custody of the young girl and Dawn knows he’s right.
The pair meet Alex in prison the following day and he’s taken aback when he finds out they know all about Clemmie.
Alex initially outright refuses to let Dawn and Billy foster Clemmie, leading to the latter blasting him for his decision.
He then changes his mind and Dawn is relieved.
But at his smug smile becomes evident, can Alex really be trusted?
