EastEnders newcomer Frankie dropped a bombshell on Mick Carter in last night’s episode (Monday, October 5) that she believes she could be his daughter.
As Mick has been married to Linda “his whole adult life”, the revelation leaves many unanswered questions…
EastEnders: Is Frankie Mick’s daughter? Who is Frankie’s mum?
In tonight’s episode (Tuesday, October 6) Mick was adamant that Frankie was lying at first.
However when the photographer told Mick that her mum is a woman named Katie Lewis, he clearly recognised the name.
Later Frankie and Mick went to Ruby’s club for a drink and Frankie explained how her mum would refuse to talk about her father.
Katie told her daughter that he walked out on her when she pregnant, wanting nothing to do with them.
But Frankie revealed she found old letters Mick had sent her mum, saying how much he missed her and didn’t know why she mysteriously disappeared.
When Frankie discovered the dates matched her birth, realised there was a chance he was her dad.
EastEnders: Did Mick cheat on Linda? What we know so far…
During tonight’s episode, Mick told Frankie that Linda was an alcoholic and the revelation that he has another child could send her over the edge.
Mick and Linda have been married since they were young and have four children together.
Their three oldest children Lee, Nancy and Johnny are all adults. And whilst we don’t know how old Frankie is, it seems like there could be a chance Mick was unfaithful to Linda at one point.
However we don’t know quite the full story.
EastEnders: Will Linda find out about Frankie?
EastEnders has not revealed when or if Linda will find out about Frankie’s revelation. However secrets don’t seem to stay secret for long in Walford.
EastEnders: Will we get to see Frankie’s mum, Katie?
