It’s set to be a terrifying week for Emmerdale’s Kim Tate.
The pull-no-punches Home Farm owner could be about to face the final curtain after a shock collapse.
The ballsy businesswoman, played by Claire King, is unnerved when her son Jamie (Alexander Lincoln) and his wife Andrea (Hope Davis) turn up to inform her they’ve amicably settled their divorce proceedings.
Jamie tells his mum that he’ll be giving up Dale View so he can keep his daughter Millie close to him.
But Kim isn’t happy with the arrangement, and she argues with Gabby (Rosie Bentham) about it until Jamie walks in and interrupts the fight.
Jamie fires some parting shots at his mum before storming off, leaving a seething Kim to round on the pregnant Gabby.
Kim finds herself woozy and disoriented as she attempts to kick Gabby out, but changes her mind later as she begins to swig brandy.
The stung youngster regardless heads out without a word.
As the door slams, Kim loses her balance and collapses to the floor, terrified as she loses consciousness.
The following day, Lydia (Karen Blick) arrives and shouts in alarm when she finds Kim still lying lifeless.
When Kim finally opens her eyes in a panic, a worried Lydia tells her she needs to see a doctor, but the formidable Kim refuses.
However, she’s privately terrified that she could have a serious illness, and begins researching on her laptop.
When Gabby pitches up later, she knocks the laptop and reads what it says aloud, causing Kim to finally come clean and shakily open up to Lydia and Gabby.
Kim is currently embroiled in Gabby’s pregnancy storyline after offering her support when Jamie encouraged her to have an abortion.
But Jamie is convinced it’s all an act so Kim can have another grandchild to add to her Tate empire.
Gabby is just pleased to have some extra love while mum Bernice is in Australia.
Emmerdale aired some explosive scenes last week as villain Paul Ashdale (Reece Dinsdale) finally met his end when Jimmy King (Nick Miles) crashed his van into the barn where he was preparing for his wedding.

And will it all end in tragedy for Kim?
