And the reason they’re all back. RIP Frank
The news takes Peggy and Pat by surprise, kicking off an emotional spat

She hasn’t got much of a reach, but there’s plenty of power. Well, she IS a Mitchell!
The mourners gather for the funeral
And the battle lines are drawn!
Frank gets a proper East End send-off
Pat and Peggy compete to look most mournful as the coffin is carried in
Church is no place for a row, Ricky
Dot has some words of consolation for Janine
Later, Melinda is less than impressed to be greeted at the door with Frank’s ashes
It was Frank’s wish to have his ashes scattered on the square
A respectful Janine takes over from a distraught Ricky
The siblings are devastated
Oddly enough, Janine manages to compose herself for the reading of the will
But there could be shocks in store for all gathered…
Meanwhile, in another part of town, Bianca’s in a desperate situation
Bianca, Tiffany, Morgan, Liam and Whitney are homeless!
She caves in and calls Ricky… but not before a pervert tries to buy her services
Her expression says it all as Bianca contemplates a return to Walford
When Ricky eventually turns up, he’s angry that Liam’s not with her
But he cheers up when she produces the family snaps
