Sadie's explosive exit
13:30 08 June 2006
'Emmerdale' bitch Sadie King is to be killed off in a huge explosion in a sensational new storyline.
The character, played by Patsy Kensit, will die when a dodgy show home bursts into flames next month, after the King brothers fail to follow correct planning regulations.
The explosion will rock the village and at least one other character will die in the tragic accident, which is being billed as the biggest disaster to hit 'Emmerdale' for a decade.
Potential victims include Sadie's ex husband Jimmy King, played by Nick Miles, and single mum Dawn Woods, played by actress Julia Mallam.
Woolpack landlady Diane Sugden, busybody Noreen Bell and young antiques dealer Danny Daggert have also been suggested as possible fatalities.
An 'Emmerdale' spokeswoman said: "At least two lives will be lost when rescue workers are unable to recover those trapped inside the building."
As the fire spreads, Diane, Danny, Dawn and Noreen will try to escape from the house but the ceiling collapses on them.
Sadie and Jimmy will be trapped in a bathroom when the floor collapses.
Show bosses previously confirmed that Patsy would be leaving the show in a special one-hour episode to be aired on July 13.
The producers are hoping the episode will provide the series with a massive ratings boost and give them an opportunity to introduce new faces to the village.
