    One person who always has time for Elaine is her son in law, Mick. Having got on famously for years, the two are very close. It is down to Mick that Elaine arrives in Albert Square after he realises that something is not right with Linda. Not knowing that Linda is going through the toughest time of her life, Mick is hopeful that Elaine’s arrival will help but will it make things better or worse?

    It is with great sadness that we report the death of much-loved actor John Bardon, who played Dot’s husband, Jim Branning, from 1996 to 2011. He was 75.
