Carly Wicks is the older sister of Deano Wicks. Like her father Kevin Wicks, Carly's ballsy and unafraid to speak her mind. She's one of the lads but scrubs up well. A tearful Carly was introduced to viewers as she stumbled into the Vic looking for her father. In her first week on the show, she split up and reconciled with her husband, and has cried almost incessantly. She is currently living with her father and Deano in a hired flat and working as an apprentice mechanic at the Arches. Phil Mitchell recently agreed to pay for her training at college so she can qualify as a mechanic. Carly has also been busy playing the role of supportive mate and sometime lover to Martin Fowler during his struggles with his heartbreak over Sonia Fowler and Rebecca Miller. She cheats on him with jake. Her bonding with Rebecca is a source of heartache for Sonia. She returned in september 2012 as a guest.
After the breakdown of her marriage, Carly moved to Walford to live with her dad Kevin and brother Deano. She was hired by Phil as a mechanic at the Arches and he sponsored her to attend college. Carly enjoyed an interesting love life, having relationships with Martin, Jake and Sean, who rescued her from a dangerous situation with yet another man!
Carly had a tough time at home. She’d been abandoned by her mother Shirley when she was young and later found out that her loving dad Kevin and little brother Deano were in fact not her biological family at all!
After Kevin died, Carly rejected Shirley’s attempts at comfort and left Walford with Denise to travel the world and scatter Kevin's ashes. While Denise returned to The Square, Carly decided to set up home in Australia, but still found time to phone Shirley to wish her a Happy Christmas…maybe there’s hope for them yet?
