Who is Frankie on Eastenders?
It's not yet clear quite who newcomer Frankie is on the soap.
The mysterious character first appeared in the Square back in May 2020 when Callum introduced her to Ben in the hope that she’d help him come to terms with his hearing loss.
Frankie, who is the BBC soap's first ever deaf character, then secured herself a job at The Prince Albert and hit it off with Tina Carter.
But Mick grew uneasy when he noticed the photographer had struck up a friendship with his son Ollie, and even more unsettled when he found a bunch of photos of the Carters on her camera.
Is Frankie Mick's daughter in EastEnders?
After Frankie revealed to Tina that her little brother died 10 years ago, the new character became the subject of much speculation among fans.
Some viewers were left convinced that she will turn out to be Mick and Simone Lahbib’s character’s secret daughter, who they think abused Mick as a teenager.
One fan tweeted: "I think I've got Frankie's story sussed. Mick was in care right growing up? Suppose Frankie's mum was his foster mother or social worker and she abused him when he was younger and he never knew about Frankie?"
The Sun Online exclusively revealed how the Bad Girls star will be joining the soap for a dramatic new storyline with the Carters.
Actress Simone revealed her character's arrival will "test the Carters strength as a family", while producer Jon Sen teased it would have an "everlasting" impact.
Other fans are convinced that Frankie is trying to con Mick by pretending to be his daughter.
Another viewer tweeted: "The only ideal scenario is Frankie and her mother (Simone Lahbib) are conning Mick and she isn't related to either Mick or Stuart. #EastEnders"
Another fan added: "The one they are bringing in as Frankie's mother just seems too young to have worked in a children's home or been a social worker when Mick and Tina were kids."
A fourth said: "I don't think it's as simple as Frankie is Mick's unknown daughter – there's something deeper here #EastEnders."
But with EastEnders keeping shtum, viewers will have to tune in to find out whether Frankie is Mick’s daughter.
