EM­MERDALE leg­end Claire King will be back in the vil­lage next year – and this time she’s here to stay.

Claire, 55, made a dra­matic re­turn as Kim Tate last week af­ter two decades away from the Dales.

In last night’s episode she was sent back to prison for break­ing the terms of her li­cence af­ter be­ing caught speed­ing in her flashy As­ton Martin.

But fans have not seen the last of the soap’s superbitch be­cause she will be back film­ing early next year af­ter bosses signed her up on a long-term con­tract. Claire said: “You knew she wasn’t go­ing to go away qui­etly.

“It’s been great fun keep­ing it un­der wraps but now she can re­ally get down to busi­ness!”

Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Jane Hud­son said: “Although Kim’s ini­tial re­turn was fleet­ing, she caused such mis­chief and chaos we sim­ply couldn’t re­sist bring­ing her back. An ex­plo­sive 2019 will see her hell-bent on get­ting ex­actly what, and who, she wants.”
