**Poor Carly Hope isn’t having a great time right now, and the reason behind her strange behaviour is about to be revealed. **

After she catches Kirin Kotecha screaming in baby Johnny’s face, Carly later discovers the little one in another state of neglect.

When Carly finds him drinking beer and listening to loud music while taking care of the baby, Kirin begs her not to tell Vanessa Woodfield.

Despite the uncomfortable situation, Carly assures Kirin she’ll keep his behaviour a secret. But, as usual in Soapland, the secret doesn’t stay that way for long.

When Leyla Harding collapses and is rushed to hospital, Carly instantly assumes something has happened to Johnny and launches into a verbal attack on Kirin – in front of Vanessa.

Attempting to explain her reaction, Carly confides in Tracy Shankley – and claims she had a friend who suffered a miscarriage.

However viewers are then given the heartbreaking truth, when Carly is seen holding a photograph of her with a child, and it’s obvious she’s the one who lost a baby.

Speaking to the Express about the storyline, Gemma Atkinson, who plays Carly, said: “[She] is about to open up and tell Tracy about it, but she’s still not one hundred per cent ready to.

“She hasn’t even told her parents, so to just tell Tracy in the pub wouldn’t feel right. In the end, Carly just twists the story slightly. I think people do that in real life and just say they’re talking about a ‘friend or a friend’. But it’s really what she’s been going through herself.”

Gemma teased that as more of her story is revealed, things will only go from bad to worse for Carly.
