Emmerdale fans saw Andrea Tate (played by Anna Nightingale) return to the village earlier this month after she fled following a run in with her cheating husband, Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) and his lover Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper). The actress who plays the mother of one spoke to Express.co.uk and other press about her character’s current situation and why she feels Andrea is no longer fit to be Millie’s parent. Could this see Bell being given a once in a lifetime opportunity?
“Having seen Jamie and Belle together, and thinking she’s [Andrea] literally pushed them further together [as a couple], I think it’s the first moment she realises he [Jamie] really does love this other woman,” Anna explained.
“Or at least he really wants to be with Belle and it’s the real thing, it’s not just an affair, it’s not just based on physical [attraction], there’s more to it.
“And [Andrea] realises she’s alone for the first time.
“All kind of thoughts go through her head, of not wanting to be [in Emmerdale] anymore.

“And not wanting to be anywhere near anybody, and [she questions] whether or not she’s fit to be a mother to Millie in that moment,” the actress added.
Anna went onto explain why Andrea made a “snap decision to be alone” and leave Millie with Jamie when she fled a few weeks ago.
“She also knows that Jamie’s a good father [but she wasn’t] thinking long term,” Anna said.
With Andrea questioning her ability to look after her daughter, it seems she could make a drastic decision would could change Belle’s life forever.
She already recognises the good relationship Jamie and Millie have together as father and daughter.
But she realises she is not the stable parent their child needs.
With Kim Tate’s (Claire King) hatred towards Andrea growing strong with every second, she could find herself leaving Home Farm, albeit alone.
To add to this, Take A Vow has been suffering great loss recently, after the office was trashed and their biggest client took their business elsewhere.

With Jamie seemingly wanting to start a new life with Belle instead of Andrea, and with Millie having settled in, Andrea could find Emmerdale has nothing to offer her at the moment.
Should this be the case, a departure may be on the cards and Millie thrust into Belle and Jamie’s care.
Fans of the ITV soap wouldn’t miss her character that’s for sure, as many have called for an overhaul on the storyline.
One strongly said: “Andrea really is absolutely VILE #Emmerdale.”

“Andrea is so desperate it’s irritating to watch. She has no love for herself. Forcing a man to stay married to you? God forbid #Emmerdale,” another wrote.
Someone else suggested: “Andrea, you pathetic sap #Emmerdale.”
“Please, please can the storyline of Jamie, Bell, and Andrea be done with now it’s too pathetic to watch!” A fan asked.
Emmerdale airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm on ITV.
