Emmerdale is due to be shaken by the return of Carl King’s son Tom, who will allegedly mount a comeback in the coming months.
Originally known as Thomas, the character was last seen attempting to get Belle to go with him before stealing a camper van from Dan Spencer and making a departure from the town.
With the passing of his father Carl, who became into an incredible villain in his latter years on the show, Tom is infamous for making Chas Dingle’s life a living nightmare.
According to The Sun, James Chase will replace Mark Flanagan in the position.
Tom’s homecoming will be explosive, a source informed the newspaper. ‘ When he unexpectedly comes to the community, it surprises his uncle Jimmy and it’s unclear why.
Tom’s return will have fans riveted to their TVs, and his presence might spark havoc.
Emmerdale has been contacted by Metro.co.uk for comment.
As fans are aware, Jimmy has recently been considering his life. He said at the most recent Man Club gathering that he misses his brothers, who are all dead, leaving him the only King still standing.
He reflected on how he, Matthew, and Carl used to compete with one another for dad Tom’s love and stated that he wouldn’t have spent his time if he had known then what he knows now.
Whether it was over women or their position in the family company, the King brothers were often embroiled in disputes.
The youngest brother, Carl, was finally found to be the murderer of their father, Tom, despite the fact that all three brothers were first suspected.
When Carl realised he would forfeit his fortune if he married Chas Dingle, he shoved Tom out of a window and to his death (Lucy Pargeter).
Would Tom, however, turn out to be just as evil as his father? Furthermore, might Tom’s return be a consequence of Jimmy wanting to get in touch with his brothers?
Emmerdale airs on ITV1 and ITVX on weeknights at 7:30 p.m.
