Emmerdale’s Edna Birch is about to get a nasty surprise.

The prudish pensioner is the subject of a search by pal Jarvis Skelton after requesting he finds out information about her grandmother.

Proud Edna is convinced her relative was a high society mover and shaker, who won respect and admiration from all around her.

But when unsuspecting Jarvis puts his family tree research into action, he discovers Edna’s grandmother had a reputation for all the wrong reasons.

It turns out that the lady in question made her living by working as a prostitute - and was notorious in her time. And poor Edna has no idea that her family was famous for such raunchy reasons.

The news comes as a delightful surprise to Edna’s mischievous pals Laurel Potts and Pearl Ladderbanks, but Jarvis knows it is bound to cause the straight-laced local painful embarrassment.

Will Jarvis tell Edna the truth?
