She returned this week for what was believed to be a short stint, but after a week of dramatic events, ITV have confirmed that Kim Tate will be making a permanent return early 2019.
Having ordered the death of Joe Tate, this Emmerdale bad girl has left chaos in her waker but after spending the next six months behind bars, Claire King will be back as Kim Tate early next year and will undoubtedly be wreaking havoc once more.
She's already ruffled a few feathers so there won’t be many celebrating her return. But with her claws soon to be firmly back in Home Farm, what does Emmerdale’s super bitch have in store for the rest of the village?
Speaking about her character’s permanent return, Claire King said “You knew she wasn’t going to go away quietly, so I’m so pleased to announce Kim will be back. It’s been great fun keeping it under wraps but now she can really get down to business!”
Executive Producer, Jane Hudson added "Although Kim's initial return was fleeting, she caused such mischief and chaos that we simply couldn't resist bringing her back. Kim Tate is just getting warmed up for an explosive 2019 which will see her hell-bent on getting exactly what, and who, she wants.”
Emmerdale continues Mondays to Fridays at 7pm with an extra episode Thursdays at 8pm on ITV
