Frankie was horrified to discover that mum Katy had sexually abused Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) when he was 12.
Mick, struggling to come to terms with the discovery, decided that he would report his abuser to the police, and while daughter Frankie initially wrestled with his decision, she ultimately knew it was the right thing to do.
With word of Katy’s crimes having got out due to the police investigation into the matter, Frankie decided to accept Mick’s offer to move in, and therefore she’s been residing at The Vic with the Carter clan.
Next week, she’s left upset when she receives a letter from Katy, and thus throws it in the bin.
Mick, however, later finds the envelope and comes to realise it’s a birthday card.
Feeling guilty, the publican apologises to Frankie for forgetting her birthday, and insists that they celebrate the following day.
As the party commences, Mick hands Frankie the card from her mum, but Frankie is left speechless when, inside, she finds a cheque for £2,000.
The young woman refuses to be bribed, and therefore disposes of the cheque, as she throws it in the bin!
