We all know how dangerous Kim Tate (Claire King) can be – so whoever is poisoning her in Emmerdale has put a death sentence on themselves as she will have her revenge.
But when Andrea (Anna Nightingale) suggests her dinner party could be a setting for mass murder, Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) fears there could be something in that, given that everyone invited has crossed Kim in some way.
The actor told us: ‘Nobody knows why they have been invited to the lunch. The invites landed through their letterboxes that morning for lunch that same day, which is odd.
‘There is a conversation in the village where Dawn and Jamie and Jai are all talking, they are all slightly unsure what to expect. Andrea comments to them how Kim is probably going to murder them all but then she jokes it’s probably worse than that.’
While Kim might not go as far as that – yet – she is bound to have something nasty in store for whoever turns out to be her poisoner. Is Jai the culprit?
Chris continued: ‘Kim’s not been pulling her weight at the business – so, Jai has essentially been left running it. Kim’s also making a lot of mistakes, missing details on contracts.
‘So for Jai her situation is increasing his workload and really starting to frustrate and annoy him. She’s just not pulling her weight despite her stake in the business. Her being forgetful is a real hindrance to him at the moment.
‘His motive would be to undermine, convince everyone she’s not capable and then try and take full control of the business. A bit of payback for the way she treated Rishi when he was forced to sell his share of Sharma & Sharma to her.
‘Between Jai and Kim there has always been a bit of a power struggle as she always assumes the role of boss but actually she isn’t – technically they are partners.. That definitely irritates Jai. Since Kim has taken her eyes off the ball Jai has been more assertive with her.’
But Chris is adamant that is Jai did turn out to be the poisoner, his motive wouldn’t be murder.
He mused: ‘He could be the poisoner – but I doubt he’d be doing it to kill her. Although, if she was affected enough to relinquish control of the business I suppose that would be in Jai’s interests.
‘He wouldn’t mind it if Jamie or Gabby got the business as I think Jai feels he could manipulate them easier than Kim.’
