Nancy Carter (played by Maddy Hill) and her sister Frankie (Rose Ayling-Ellis) find themselves banged-up in a police cell after things turned rowdy at The Prince Albert on EastEnders (BBC1, 7.35pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Things are rather awkward between the ladies at the moment.

But their stint behind bars gives 'em plenty of time to open-up and reflect on what's been going on of late. However, Nancy still remains unaware of Frankie's involvement in the hit-and-run accident that landed her in hospital recently.

And that Nancy's now ex-boyfriend Zack Hudson (James Farrer) helped Frankie cover-up the crime, will Frankie's guilty conscience get the better of her and lead her to reveal the SHOCK truth?
