Fans were left baffled tonight as Emmerdale vet Jamie Tate (played by Alexander Lincoln) revealed his age to Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper). Fans have called out the writers of the ITV soap asking if they had made a mathematical mistake, as they questioned whether or not Jamie could be so young.
The Dales were rocked last month as Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough) was brutally murdered by Pierce Harris (Jonathan Wrather).
There were a number of suspects put on the spot, but it ended up not being any of them as Pierce returned to the village to get his revenge on Rhona Goskirk’s (Zoe Henry) lover.
One family in particular had more than a few reasons to want revenge on Graham after he revealed he thought he was Millie Tate’s (Willow Bell) dad.
As viewers know, it was in fact Jamie who was Millie dad with his wife Andrea Tate (Anna Nightingale) the biological mother.

But Jamie split from Andrea when it was revealed on Christmas Day she had engaged in a sordid affair with Graham a few years ago.
Tonight however, Jamie left fans baffled as he revealed his age to Belle during his ongoing custody battle with Andrea.
After confirming he and Belle had spent the night together the pair have remained fairly awkward around each other as they try to keep the secret under wraps.
In scenes which aired earlier this evening, those watching at home saw the two share another intimate moment and viewers watched him open up to her.
Jamie told Belle: “I’m a 23-year-old soon to be divorcee who lives at home with his mum.”
This would obviously be correct as he was born on the show in 1996 to his mum Kim Tate (Claire King).
At the time Jamie was born, both Frank Tate (Norman Bowler) and Dave Glover (Ian Kelsey) were named potential fathers, but the timeline has thrown viewers off.
And of course Jamie was left furious over Christmas over his own paternity worries, but it was the age issue that left fans confused.

One fan commented: “So if Jamie is 23 that would mean he got Andrea pregnant at 17 and still went to university. come @emmerdale sort it out.”
Another said: “Jamie is 23? Sorry don’t believe it.”
A third commented: “No way is Jamie only 23.”
And a fourth added: “Jamie 23, thought it was 7 Uni years to become a vet.”
