Sinister Aunt Babe (Annette Badland) is to lash out at sister Sylvie (Linda Marlowe) in the wake of Stan Carter’s death.
Babe – who it was recently revealed has always harboured a secret love for Stan – will be seen coldly breaking the news of his passing to a confused Sylvie.
But when Sylvie – who is suffering with Alzheimer’s – makes an attempt to leave her care home to visit the rest of the Carters, Babe loses her temper and strikes her across the face.
Following the attack, Sylvie will be seen making threats to call the police and tell them about something that happened in the past.
But the ever-manipulative Babe is quick to stamp her authority on the situation when she reminds Sylvie that she was also involved. Just what are the pair covering up? And who will be the eventual victor in this increasingly violent power struggle?
