Jimmy is the eldest King brother, but has been less successful in business than two of his brothers Matthew and Carl, and less sophisticated than his veterinary brother Max.
Jimmy does try to be more successful but despite his good intentions can sometimes end up making a fool of himself...but at least he’s still alive! Since meeting Nicola and having Angelica, he's proved to be a really good family man and would do anything for them. Jimmy and Nicola are a classic soap couple who are continually arguing and at odds with one another….but who absolutely dote on each other and could not live without one another.
