Linda Carter’s (played by Kellie Bright) marriage to Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) is holding on by a thread after the numerous occasions she’s allowed her alcohol problem to get in the way of being there for her family. Now, her addiction has started to impact Ollie Carter (Harry Farr). However, as Linda continues to deny she’s a danger to herself and those around her, will Mick be able to get her to listen before it’s too late?
After the fallout of Linda’s actions on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, Mick is struggling to keep the Carter family together.

Recently on the BBC soap, Linda was devastated when Ollie’s teacher explained the young boy had aired his concerns about his mum’s behaviour.
As a result, Mick and Linda were told social services would be in touch to access their situation.
