Elaine Peacock returns from holiday with a new love interest and shocks the Carters when she introduces him to the family and tells everyone that they are engaged!
Scott Neal will be joining the cast as toy boy Jason – and while Elaine is over the moon, everything may not be what it seems.
Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins said: “We’ve got some rare fun for the Carters as Maria Friedman returns for a three-month stint with Scott Neal in tow as her toy boy lover, all of which will add a little bit of fun for Mick and Linda in the pub.”
Scott Neal has also appeared in London’s Burning, Emmerdale, The Bill and Beautiful Thing.
