Kim Tate (played by Claire King) has developed an unhealthy obsession with gaining parental access to her granddaughter and grandchild-to-be since the presumed death of her son Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) on Emmerdale. However, Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) and Diane Sugden (Elizabeth Estensen) plan on taking drastic action to keep Gabby Thomas’ (Rosie Bentham) baby away from the scheming businesswoman. 

In upcoming scenes, Kim suggests Gabby draws up a will to give her sole parental rights to her child. 

Emmerdale residents believe Jamie has died and so Kim’s eagerness to step in if Gabby dies worries the mum-to-be.

Later, she overhears Kim on the phone with her lawyer discussing her custody battle with Andrea Tate (Anna Nightingale).

Andrea wants Kim to have nothing to do with her daughter but the businesswoman refuses to accept her wishes.

Kim tells her lawyer she wants full custody of Millie by any means possible. 

Gabby’s stunned and begins to fear Kim will turn against her when she gives birth. 

The mum-to-be opens up to grandmother Diane about her concerns.

She’s horrified when her granddaughter explains Kim wants custody of her baby in the event of Gabby’s death.

Diane suggests they secretly run away to Portugal to get away from the scheming businesswoman. 

Gabby agrees and the pair meet with Bernice to discuss the plan. 

Bernice is mortified by her daughter and mother’s suggestion but admits she understands why the mum-to-be is frightened. 

She tells them she’ll support their decision but wants to stay in the village. 

However, later, Diane and Gabby are thrilled when Bernice suggests she moves to Portugal with them.

Diane warns her daughter she must keep their plan secret as not to alert Kim.

Will the trio be able to get to Portugal safely or will the Tate matriarch learn about their plan and stop them?

Gabby is terrified Kim will launch a custody battle for her baby once she gives birth but the supposed grieving mother may take further action.

If the businesswoman is denied custody of Millie and is told any efforts to gain parental control of Gabby’s child would be fruitless, she may be driven to kidnapping her grandchild.

Andrea knows the sinister depths Kim would be prepared to go but Gabby may feel powerless to stop her.

Could fleeing the village for good be the only thing that will keep Gabby’s baby safe?
