Vanessa and Tracy find out they're sisters!

Vanessa Woodfield and Tracy Shankley have absolutely no idea that they share a father until they find themselves together at his hospital bedside in Emmerdale!

The first clue for viewers that Emmerdale's Vanessa Woodfield and Tracy Shankley shared a father was when they separately revealed they each had a father called Frank in prison.

Then we saw Frank call each of them 'Teenie', again separately.

With the women passing each other in the hospital as they visited Frank, and then talking to their friends about him, it was only a matter of time before they were hit with the shocking truth: they're not bosom buddies but they ARE half-sisters!

And it happens at the hospital…
