Kim (played by Claire King) has always had a scheme or two up her sleeve during her reign as one of Emmerdale’s most infamous villains. Although she has never had the steadiest of family set-ups, the one thing which has kept the fire lit within her has been getting her hands on the village mansion of Home Farm. Since her return to the ITV soap last year, she has been lapping up a life of luxury at the prominent establishment with her son Jamie (Alexander Lincoln), his wife Andrea Tate (Anna Nightingale) and granddaughter Millie Tate (Willow Bell). However, the period of bliss has come crumbling down around her as it was revealed the ruthless businesswoman’s child had been having an affair. With his marriage beyond the means of repair, will the vet’s mother be forced to hand over the one thing she holds dear to her heart?

Tonight’s episode of the village-based drama will see things pick up from three weeks ago where Jamie’s dalliance with Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) was made public knowledge thanks to his vengeful wife.

As he tried to get his head around his world imploding around him, the father-of-one discovered both his other half and their daughter had gone missing.

The upcoming instalments will see him desperately trying to find them, unaware his spouse if watching from the shadows with her friend and ally, Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi).

Kim will soon be on their trail as she follows them to a local hotel where her daughter-in-law has been hiding out for a few days.

As a result of the drama, Andrea will hand herself over to the police but with it yet to be determined what the future hold for her marriage, will she decide to go after him and his mother for all their worth?

It’s fair to say Andrea and Kim have never seen eye-to-eye, with Jamie becoming estranged from his mother for several years so she could stay out of his marriage.

However, when the couple and their daughter arrived in the village last year, the vet’s spouse tried to keep the peace by being civil to her mother-in-law.

Following the discovery at Christmas she had a one-night stand with Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough), the two women went to war once more.

Now, with the revelation her other half has been cheating on her and his mother likely to fight his corner, will she take Home Farm from under their feet?

She wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, actress Anna Nightingale hinted at another clash with her character’s mother-in-law.

As presenter Lorraine Kelly, 60, said Andrea has the “mother-in-law from hell,” the soap star replied: “I think she wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt.

“Obviously she’d heard stories with her relationship with Jamie, but there is nothing like reality checking her in the flesh.”

If the mother-of-one decides to divorce Jamie for having an affair, she could try and wriggle into the settlement that she becomes the owner of Home Farm.

Andrea could state she needs a stable home to raise the couple’s daughter Millie and where better than in a mansion.

Not wanting to lose her son again after just rebuilding her relationship with him, Kim could reluctantly hand over the deeds.

For the first time in her life, will the villain let her heart make her decisions rather than her money-making head?

The village vixen was the first owner of the prominent establishment, having arrived on the soap as the proprietor alongside husband Frank Tate (Norman Bowler).

Kim then lost her home when her other half discovered she had been having an affair with Neil Kincaid (Brian Deacon).

The villain then got her hands back on the establishment when her husband tragically died of a heart attack, which she oversaw and did nothing to help.

In accordance with his will, she inherited half the share of Home Farm before making an exit from the soap sometime later.

Returning over 20 years later, she managed to take hold of the mansion once more after a stint in prison and is currently the owner of the property, but could history be set to repeat itself?

Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
