While the number of staff running the house has dwindled following Jamie’s knee-jerk firings, Kim will have a lot to deal with.
And fans can expect her coming face to face with Will Taylor (Dean Andrews).
It comes after the thug hit Jamie during an episode this week, after he goaded and disrespected his daughter, Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley).
Many believe a romance is on the cards for Will and Kim and took to Twitter to discuss.
“#Emmerdale will taylor have steamy secret affair next with Kim tate for revenge on harriet for sleeping with Dl malone soon, I can’t wait for when Kim tate returns to emmerdale in Christmas day,” one said.
