EMMERDALE fans are already speculating who Jenny Finn is, amid the ITV soap’s latest plot that sees a familiar face with a deep, dark secret.
During Wednesday night’s episode, headteacher Jessie Dingle is floored by the news that human bones have been discovered at the school.
Taking part in a press conference, Jessie announces the authorities are officially investigating how the remains came to be buried at the school.
As villagers reel, the officer on the case, DI Bradwall soon makes a breakthrough and it’s tragically revealed the bones belong to a baby, with the identity of the mother narrowed down to a then 16 year old named Jenny Finn.
A photo uncovered of Jenny by police reveals the character is in fact a very familiar face who lives in the village.
Fans of the show are already guessing who ‘Jenny’ might be, with many believing it to be Andrea, Lydia or Dawn.
One wrote: “Calling it. Andrea is Jenny Finn. #Emmerdale”
“OMG JENNY IS LYDIA,” guessed another.
A third added: “Anyone else think Jenny Finn is going to turn out to be Dawn?”
It’s not yet been confirmed how long ago the death took place but would probably be somewhere between eight and 12 years.
It’s thought Jenny changed her name and is one of the soap’s existing characters, and most likely one of the show’s older characters are behind the secret.
Some fans have also questioned whether the spoilers confirmed it’s a current 16-year-old character though, with more details yet to be revealed.
Speculation has begun over the identity of the baby’s mother, who would know what happened to their baby and how they ended up buried at the school.
Taking to Twitter , fans quizzed whether Harriet Finch might have suffered the loss, while others even wondered if Nicola King was hiding the terrible secret.

One viewer even thought Liam Cavanagh’s supposedly dead wife could be the mother, after it emerged he was hiding something.
Teenagers Gabby Thomas and Liam’s daughter Leanna are also potential suspects, if fans are right and it’s a recent death.
But it is more likely to be a past incident, with Lydia Hart topping the suspect list according to fans, while newcomer Andrea Tate and troubled character Priya Sharma are also in the frame.
Viewers will have to stay tuned to find out who Jenny Finn really is.
