Emmerdale viewers were left wondering if Kim Tate could be pregnant after tuning into Tuesday's episode of the ITV soap.

The feisty businesswoman was seen looking pale and almost fainted as she ran errands in the village, but she was keen not to make a fuss.

As Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) offered her a sugary tea and told her to put her legs between her legs, Kim (Claire King) rubbished his advice and insisted she was fine.

Viewers were quick to speculate about what might be wrong with Kim, with many predicting she is expecting a baby.

"I know this sounds ridiculous but kim is not pregnant, is she? #Emmerdale," one viewer tweeted.

Another posted: "#emmerdale Im betting my house on Kim being pregnant (sic)," while a third added: "Kim might be preggy #emmerdale."

A fourth viewer penned: "I mean if she’s pregnant Will is in a RIGHT mess it would just make sense with the whole ‘pile on misery on Harriet/Will/Dawn’ #Emmerdale."

However, other soap fans feared that Kim's medical situation could be a lot more serious and she might be killed off.

"#Emmerdale I don't suppose they're gonna bin Kim off," one person pondered.

Another tweeted: "#emmerdale is Kim about to have a heart attack ?? Has will been poisoning her hahaha."

Kim has been sleeping with Will recently, but doesn't appear to be overly serious about their relationship.

And it seems she's going to have bigger things to worry about thanks to this new health scare.

Kim refused to go to hospital or speak to a doctor after being found on her living room floor by a concerned Lydia.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
