EastEnders fans predict Simone Lehbib will play Frankie’s mum

Fans also think she could be a former flame of Mick's

EastEnders fans are predicting that Simone Lehbib’s character will be Frankie’s mum.

Last week, EastEnders confirmed they had cast Bad Girls actress Simone in the BBC soap. However, the show remained tight-lipped on who she would be playing.

However, it was confirmed that she has links to Mick Carter. This of course has led fans to start theorising on who Simone will be playing.

A popular theory amongst fans is that Simone will be playing Frankie’s mum and that Frankie could be Mick’s secret child.

EastEnders: Who is Frankie?

Frankie was introduced to viewers earlier this year.

After the Thames boat crash, Ben lost his hearing and soon met Frankie, who was born deaf.

Definitely think she’s going to play Frankie’s mum.

However in more recent weeks, she has become friendly with Tina Carter, who she works with at The Prince Albert.
