We rejoin the drama in Walford on Monday 13th January to see that Bianca is in a thunderous mood with Carol and David.
After a family row, David checks Carol’s phone and finds she’s missed a hospital appointment to get her test results. Carol’s furious when she realises David has tricked her into going to the hospital with him…
She insists she wants to collect her results alone, but she’s not prepared for the shock when she’s told she does have breast cancer. Carol later lies to David and tells him it was a false alarm, but David is soon suspicious.
