Linda (Kellie Bright) and Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) are to arrive back on the Square in the coming weeks and will soon be heading to the police station.
With the revelations about her rape ordeal having broken at Christmas, Linda now decides to report Dean (Matt Di Angelo). In scenes to be shown on Tuesday 20 January, a brave Linda will be seen preparing to give her statement with Mick by her side. But will she get justice?
Back in October, the soap’s executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins revealed that Dean won’t be facing justice through the courts:
“In real life, a lot of people don’t get their comeuppance. There will have to be a satisfying ending to the story, but it won’t be what you expect,” he said. “The easy and wrong way to tell the story would be to have Dean arrested and taken off to prison. I’d loved to have done a big trial, but there won’t be one.”
