Em­merdale bad­die Kim Tate is back for good

Daily Record - - NEWS -

SOAP bad­die Kim Tate is re­turn­ing to Em­merdale for good, show bosses have con­firmed.

Kim, played by Claire King, ap­peared on the long-run­ning pro­gramme for a decade from 1989 and came back for a “cheeky cameo” this month.

But af­ter or­der­ing the death of Joe Tate on her ex­plo­sive re­turn, she will now be “here to stay”, pro­duc­ers have said.

Pro­ducer Jane Hud­son said: “Although Kim’s ini­tial re­turn was fleet­ing, she caused such mis­chief and chaos that we couldn’t re­sist bring­ing her back.”

She added: “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.”

Kim will spend the next six months in prison but will be back to wreak havoc on the ITV soap af­ter that.

The char­ac­ter was in­tro­duced to au­di­ences in 1989 as the wife of Frank Tate.

Her time on the soap started in­no­cently at first but Kim went on to be­come one of the most no­to­ri­ous bad­dies in the pro­gramme’s his­tory, leav­ing a trail of chaos in her wake at ev­ery turn.
