Not before kicking Josh out of the house and pouring the rest of their vodka down the sink, Laurel finally lost her cool and lashed out at Gabby when she discovered the truth.
"Bring your sheets down. Just bring your sheets down, we'll talk about this later," she tells her stepdaughter, before Gabby explains: "It's not my sheets I need to bring down."
Watch the moment Laurel reacts to the shocking news below.
Although Laurel is clearly apologetic for lashing out at her stepdaughter, it's hard to know where their relationship will go from here.
Things are set to get a lot more difficult for Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) in the coming weeks, as Ashley goes missing after celebrating his father's birthday.
Although Laurel is worried that the day's events will all be too much for her husband, she's pleasantly surprised to see him easily fitting back into his old life.
Still wearing his cassock, Ashley is mistaken for a vicar when he later returns to the care home and is left wandering the village lost and confused.
While we're not sure how Ashley's story ends, Digital Spy revealed yesterday that John Middleton has already filmed his final scenes as the long-running character.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
