But will he finally reveal who Frankie really is?
Mick is unimpressed when Max offers Linda another shift in the restaurant and interrupts her shift. Back home, it soon becomes clear to Linda that something is clearly bothering Mick.
After making an appointment for a medication review for Mick, Shirley overhears and forces Linda to admit she’s at her wits end and Mick is struggling. When Mick finds out about the appointment he’s furious at Linda for going behind his back.
When Shirley later visits Mick, she tells him that she knows Linda is worried and his anxiety is through the roof and they all just want to help. Shirley wants to know why he’s been calling Frankie. Who is she to him? She won’t let it go and pushes for the truth. Will Mick finally tell the truth?
Shirley knows something’s wrong and refuses to go anywhere until she knows the truth, forcing Mick to delve into his childhood.
