Emmerdale's Nick Miles hints at danger for Jimmy after 'tough' storyline
Emmerdale’s Nick Miles has opened up on the ‘tough’ storyline which sees his character, Jimmy King, accused of child abuse.
With Arthur Thomas (Alfie Clarke) fearing he’d get into trouble for lashing out at Archie Breckle (Kai Assi), he conjures a story that Jimmy was responsible for his injuries.
Nick, who admitted on Lorraine that his character is ‘at the end of his tether’ after looking after the kids following the school closure, said Jimmy is ‘absolutely horrified’ by the accusations.
The 56-year-old said young Arthur: ‘He’s lost his dad in the most terrible way…in many ways it’s understandable but still not great.’
Meanwhile, things are set to get even more awkward, with Nick’s other half Nicola being best friends with Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) – Arthur’s mum.
‘She’s a very strong woman and of course she’s bezzie mates with Laurel…she has to pick sides,’ Nick said of Nicola.
‘[The storyline] rumbles right on to Christmas, it’s tough,’ he admitted.
Meanwhile, the star has noticed a pretty disturbing theme about Christmas on the farm, as he laughed: ‘They used to kill a King for Christmas every year!’
The actor, who’s been part of the cast for a whopping 15 years, wound the host up as he ominously asked: ‘Will he make it to Christmas?’
As things get increasingly serious with Jimmy’s storyline, he’s determined to clear his name while Laurel worries about her divided loyalties.
Meanwhile, Arthur is not learning a lesson from this and he continues to torment Archie.
But will Archie speak out and reveal that he was hurt by Arthur and not Jimmy? And does Laurel have to be concerned by Arthur’s growing dark edge?
However, as Jimmy worries about the consequences of the accusations, and Nicola determined to stick by her husband, Arthur is prepared to make Archie’s life a living hell.
Lorraine continues weekdays at 8.30 on ITV.
