Mick and Shirley share their first ‘proper’ Mothers Day together

Now, if you’ve seen THAT Mothers Day trailer, you’ll be pleased to know that not everything will be as dramatic, and there’ll be some lovely, light-hearted moments between mothers and their children.

With Shirley hiding the fact that she’s Mick’s mother for his whole life, until Christmas 2014 when she revealed it to him, the pair have never celebrated Mothers Day together. Well, he did know the family secret on last year’s Mothers Day, but the pair weren’t exactly talking…

So, with Mick and Shirley’s mother-son relationship being the best it’s ever been, it’s time for them to FINALLY share this moment! And we know the Carter fans will like this one…
