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.

Although she was ready to take care of Clemmie herself, Dawn Taylor (portrayed by Olivia Bromley) had no choice but to accept the little girl wouldn't be staying with her.

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.

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.
