Mick has been struggling with his mental health

But Frankie was disgusted when she learnt Katy worked in Mick’s care home and had sexually abused him when he was 12.

Later, Katy came to Walford and denied what happened, leaving Mick unsure what to think and questioning his own memory.

In last night’s episode (Thursday, November 26), Linda discovered Mick had got into a fight in a bar whilst he was staying with his son Lee.

Later, Mick drove Linda to the supermarket and she tried to encourage him to open up about how he’s feeling.

After she got out of the car, Mick started to focus on the wall which was directly opposite his car.
