In upcoming scenes on the BBC soap, EASTENDERS’ beloved Kim Fox may set her sights on buying up some property, as it appears that a new business venture could see her become a very successful businesswoman with a lot of money to spend.
On EastEnders, Kim (Tameka Empson) has been struggling as her daughter, Pearl Fox (Arayah Harris-Buckles), has started attending a private school. Knowing that her late husband, Vincent Hubbard (Richard Blackwood), is no longer alive, she is on her own to support her children, and her attempts to start a dating agency haven’t gone well. However, in next week’s episodes of the BBC soap, she will be given the opportunity to earn more money, and she may be able to save up enough money to find herself a luxurious new home on the Square.
Kim is taken aback by the fees the private school expects her to pay in scenes set to air soon on the weeknight serial drama.
The beloved character, on the other hand, doesn’t dwell on it, and it’s not long before she’s thinking of ways to make some extra cash.
The mother of two decides to try her hand at giving makeovers in order to broaden her horizons, but she is taken aback when she learns who her first client is.
Kim is taken aback when she sees newcomer Howie Danes (Delroy Atkinson) standing before her, having helped bring justice to her late husband’s death.
He still feels bad about what happened to Vincent, but he’s sitting in the Queen Vic with his new friend in no time.
Kim tells Howie about her financial woes and it appears that he has a proposal for her.
The newcomer informs the mother of two that he has a potential opportunity for her to earn some extra money, and she eagerly accepts.
It would be to promote a product for a local business online, which the beloved character thinks is simple enough, especially if she is paid for it.
However, she is shocked to learn what the product is, and while it has not been revealed at this time, it has the potential to make her very wealthy.
Kim could decide she wants to provide a better future for her children now that she has more money than ever before, and she could set her sights on becoming the landlady of the Queen Vic.
The Queen Vic is likely to be put up for sale in the coming months, as the current landlord, Mick Carter (Danny Dyer), will be leaving the show later this year.
This means a vacancy will need to be filled, and as one of Walford’s wealthiest residents, Kim may be persuaded by her friends and family to invest her money wisely.
Pearl and her brother will require a stable roof over their heads as they grow older, and the mother of two may see the Queen Vic as the ideal location for this.
She would be earning money, allowing her to provide for her family while also ensuring that they do not live on top of others.
After years of struggle, this could be the dream Kim has always envisioned for herself and her young family.
Mick’s departure from the Square has yet to be announced, so Kim may have to wait a while to get her hands on the Queen Vic.
If she were to become the iconic establishment’s landlady, she would make history as the first black woman to run the pub.
Although she and her sister, Denise Fox (Diane Parish), have made a living at the salon, they have also demonstrated the viability of a black-owned business in London.
Putting the Foxes in charge of the Queen Vic would usher in a new era for the show and the family’s beloved characters.
Mick and his wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) have owned the pub for almost ten years, so Kim will be stepping into some big shoes.
Tameka Foster, who plays Kim, has spoken out about how much she enjoys playing the quirky character after being a part of the cast for over a decade.
“I was only supposed to be in it for two episodes, but I loved it,” Tameka explained.
“It didn’t feel like work; I was just having fun while getting paid.” But I’m never at ease with it, and it keeps me on my toes.
“I never say to myself, ‘I’m going to be here for another five years or so,’ because you never know.”
“But I’m grateful because I love Kim,” she told What to Watch. “Everyone needs a Kim in their life.”
Following her return to the soap in 2020 after a hiatus, the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant reiterated her feelings about her job in another interview.
“I love my character, and I like where I work,” Tameka told Inside Soap Magazine.
“I was keeping up to date on what was going on because I am a huge fan of the show, but I did miss it,” she said of her absence.
