Emmerdale confirms Jamie Tate exit after return twist as actor Alexander Lincoln teases new projects11/05/2021
Emmerdale has confirmed Jamie Tate's exit from the hit ITV soap with actor Alexander Lincoln teasing "new projects".
Fans were treated to a real shocker on Thursday's episode (4 November) when it was confirmed that Jamie is indeed still alive as he made an explosive return.
The scenes – in which little Millie Tate (Willow Bell) and Jamie were reunited – were both sinister and sweet. The father-daughter duo were bought together by newcomer Granny Hazel ( Kate Anthony ) and it seems that she and Jamie have been cooking up the plan behind Kim Tate's ( Claire King ) back all along.
There's been speculation around whether or not the vet was still alive after he crashed his car into a lake in soap-tastic style earlier this year.
Despite the shock return twist on Thursday's episode, Emmerdale has confirmed the character's exit and revealed that there are "no current plans" for Jamie to come back to the village.
Taking to Twitter last month, Jamie actor Alexander, 27, appeared to hint at his exit as he tweeted: "Reading scripts for potential new projects all this week."
On Emmerdale, Home Farm matriarch Kim had held out hope that her son was faking his death as his body was never found. Fans have also had their suspicions that Jamie never actually died in the accident.
During a granny showdown outside the church, Kim spoke plainly about her theory.
"I know he is out there somewhere just waiting to choose his moment. He’s coming… I know he is," she insisted.
Hazel, who fans recognise from Coronation Street, then dubbed her "deluded" and things only got tougher for Kim when Millie decided she'd like to leave Home Farm to go and live with Hazel.
After a heartfelt goodbye, Kim broke down back at the house with Will as she seemed to finally accept the idea that Jamie may really be dead.
However, it turns out Kim was right all along. As Hazel and Millie pulled up at Hazel's house, Jamie appeared in the driveway with a massive smile on his face.

After a touching reunion with Millie, Jamie made his feelings about his mum clear: "It’s finally over. I never have to step foot in that hellhole of a house again. She can stay in there and rot all on her own."
