But Will, who Harriet asked to lock her up, hasn't been happy about the situation at all.

Not only has he been worried about leaving Harriet in the gloomy cellar alone, but he has also been struggling to keep the secret from Dawn.

Under pressure to lie, Will told Dawn that Harriet was away at a religious retreat... but little did Dawn know Harriet was living right under their feet.

Fans have been desperate for someone to find Harriet, and last night their prayers were answered when Dawn went to the cellar to find a bucket and spade for their beach holiday.

But instead of finding the mice that Will had told her were living in the cellar, Dawn was horrified to find Harriet lurking down there instead.

Viewers took to social media to share their relief at Harriet's hiding place finally being uncovered...

Harriet's help 

After discovering a dishevelled Harriet, Dawn pointed out that she desperately needed help and that this self-imposed punishment wasn't helping anyone.

Harriet appears to have forgotten that Dawn is also living with the guilt of what happened to Malone, especially as she is the one who actually shot the policeman in self-defence.

Now that Dawn knows what is going on, could she be the one to talk some sense into Harriet and get her some professional help?
