Emmerdale: Alexander Lincoln calls for Dave Glover to return from the dead hinting he could be Jamie’s real father

Dave died in 1996

Emmerdale star Alexander Lincoln has called for Dave Glover to return from the dead after hinting he could be Jamie Tate’s biological father.

Back in 1995, Kim Tate, who was married to Frank Tate, had an affair with Dave. In September 1996, she gave birth to a baby boy named Jamie.

At first it was unsure who Jamie’s biological father was, but it was mentioned Frank had a low sperm count, and so his chances of fathering Jamie were low.

Despite this, a DNA test later proved that Dave wasn’t Jamie’s father.

Later Dave was killed in a fire at Home Farm after saving baby Jamie.

Speaking to Inside Soap: “It would be so interesting to bring back Dave Glover, maybe to finally settle the issue of Jamie’s paternity. We believe that Frank Tate is Jamie’s father, although it was never completely set in stone.

“It would be amazing – I mean, I know he’s dead on the show, but that never really matters…”

Jamie and Kim left the village in 1999, however in 2019, a now grown up Jamie returned to the village.

The character is a father to Millie, who’s mother is his ex-wife Andrea Tate.
