Emmerdale star Claire King teases return of Kim's dark side

Emmerdale fans will be treated to a return to the dark side of Kim Tate in upcoming storylines.

Soap star Claire King has promised more of the villainess ITV fans love to hate in new stories, as Kim is now having a hard time coping living with her husband Will Taylor's ex, Rose Jackson. Rose has moved in at Home Farm to support Will and Dawn as her daughter is dealing with a heartbreaking leukaemia diagnosis for her son Evan.

Speaking with Inside Soap, King teased "nice" Kim may be soon replaced by the good ol' "naughty" Kim, who never really went away.

"There's definitely been a softer side, but as we saw with Caleb, if Kim's crossed you'd better duck!" she said.

"That side of her is always lying just beneath the surface."

While the soap star acknowledged playing a softer side to Kim has been "great", evil Kim is obviously more fun.

"It's great playing nice Kim because it adds layers and another dimension to her character, although naughty Kim is always more fun and has great one-liners," she shared.

"However, I think the audience is waiting for a reappearance of naughty Kim, and maybe they might have their chance soon…"

Rose better watch her back if Kim's on her case, with King hinting at a clash at some point down the line.

"I don't think she'd put up with Rose for five minutes if it wasn't for Dawn and the rest of the family," she shared.

"She's going to put up with Rose until something goes horribly wrong, I guess."

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
