But with Harriet and Dawn still worried about their future, it may be in their best interests to try and stay on the right side of the new vicar.
Could it be possible Charles is really working for the police and trying to find out more about Malone’s strange disappearance?
Elsewhere, Charles will soon make a friend in the form of Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) after he explains he needs somewhere to stay.
Rhona offers Charles a room in her house to rent but could she unwittingly end up becoming embroiled in the plot to find out what happened to Malone if fans’ theories are correct?
