Jimmy and wife Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) are currently locked in a fight with Carl’s birth mum Juliette (Amelia Curtis), who has recently resurfaced and appears determined to discredit the Kings in order to gain greater access to her son.
Speaking out about Jimmy’s plight, Miles told Metro.co.uk: ‘I’m finding it affecting because that’s a real drama that a lot of people have to go through. And it’s been in the background of my childhood as well.
‘It’s what soaps do at their very best – play out real dramas that everyday people have to face.
‘And it’s heart-rending to see the possibility of a birth mother, who has never had anything to do with her six-year-old child, coming into his life and removing him. It’s horrific.’
Next week’s drama on the ITV soap will see Jimmy dicing with danger when he gets a call, while out driving out his truck, that Juliette wants immediate access to Carl, something that the haulage boss isn’t willing to grant.
But as a distracted Jimmy races back to the village, the glare from the sun causing him to lose control of the vehicle.
The soap’s bosses aren’t yet revealing whether Jimmy makes it through the ordeal, but Miles hinted that the battle with Juliette will continue for the duration of 2021. Whether Jimmy is around to be a participant, though, remains to be seen:
‘This is going to play out for the rest of the year at least. And I think it could go further. And it won’t just affect the Kings.
‘This is going to have a massive effect on, well…three people particularly.’
