Later, when Tim tells Mick that other survivors have come forward, Mick starts to panic and asks if the other men can give evidence instead of him.
Linda tries to calm Mick down but he announces that going to court is off the cards.
Will he change his mind?
Last month viewers watched Mick finally pluck up the courage to report Katy to the police after months of struggling to come to terms with the abuse.
Katy initially managed to manipulate Mick into believing he’d imagined the abuse – and that Frankie wasn’t his daughter – when she first arrived in the Square.
But Mick confronted his abuser over the new year period and forced her to admit the abuse.
