Could Frankie and Zack be in huge trouble?
Speaking about what goes through her character’s mind when she hits Nancy, actress Rose Ayling-Ellis – who plays Frankie in the BBC soap – revealed: "Pure panic and guilt – she can’t believe it!"
Talking about Frankie's dilemma after the hit and run, she added: “Frankie is feeling very stuck.
"Telling the truth could risk her losing what she has with the Carter’s but her lying does the same thing – it’s a bigger risk if the truth ever does come out. So she’s completely torn and worried.
"She only listens to Zack because he knows what happened and he seems to be calm and controlled. He takes charge of the situation to fix it so she goes along with it and does what Zack says, despite how she really feels.”
