It was later confirmed that he had faked his death to escape mum Kim’s control. But he ended up fleeing abroad after trying to kill his mother in law.

Now actor Alexander has told how he has been approached ‘quite a few times’ to return. But would he make a comeback when his career is going from strength to strength?

“It’s a conversation that I’ve had quite a few times,” he told The Sun. “At the moment, I’m quite enjoying this vibe and writing, so we’ll see what happens in the future.”

The actor also recently told Attitude magazine: “I loved the show. I lived in Leeds for two and a half years. I miss everyone from the show deeply. No one knew who I was before it – I’d done some very tiny things.

“It was my initiation into the acting world. I can never thank them enough for that experience. But I don’t know, to be honest. There have been talks. But for now, I really want to focus on this year: I want to produce, start my own scripts.

“There are other parts I want tot play. There are constraints. Being on the show, it’s such hard work – you don’t have time to do anything else. Booking a holiday is hard enough.”

Emmerdale recently ruled out the possibility of Jamie working with his secret half-brother Caleb Miligan. Fans know Caleb is the son of Jamie’s dad Frank Tate. He has been targeting Kim with a scam to take her millions and Home Farm from her.
