Elaine Peacock is the mother of Linda Carter. Billed as a "larger than life, glamorous landlady who loves to be the centre of attention", Elaine is tough, warm and capable - but also proud and more than a little vain. Her and her daughter Linda are very alike.They are less like mother and daughter - More like sisters.

Elaine has a very strong relationship with son-in-law Mick, because they've known each-other since Mick was a child. Elaine's arrival storyline was when Mick rings her because he was worried of Linda's behaviour, unknown that she was raped by Dean. Elaine is also quite good at singing. Elaine later susses out that Dean raped Linda and the pair share a heart to heart.

Storylines 2014–

Mick calls her to Walford for the first time in October 2014 when Linda starts acting strangely, refusing to be intimate with him and complaining of migraines. Elaine convinces Linda to dress up and work the bar during a musical bingo night run by her granddaughter Nancy, and later becomes suspicious when she notices tension between her daughter and Dean. She accuses Linda of having an affair with him, revealing that she cheated on Linda's deceased father John before his death. Linda denies this passionately and Elaine believes her, but still sensing something is wrong, she warns Dean to stay away from Linda.

She returns to Walford in December and finds out that Linda was raped. Elaine then allows Mick and Linda to stay with her for a while to escape the Square. Elaine returns for an event at The Vic, and then again when Linda has her five-month scan. After the scan, she breaks down to Elaine, revealing her fears that the baby is Dean's, not Mick's. It is later but finally revealed that after Linda gives birth prematurely to baby Ollie, he is Mick's son.

After being absent from the Square, Elaine turns up again in September 2015 when son-in-law Mick arranges her to take Linda on holiday to get away from Walford as it was coming up to an anniversary of her rape. Linda wasn't happy about the idea and took her daughter Nancy with her as they went out to Spain, accept Linda comes home early with Nancy and Ollie. Elaine came back a few days later with her fiance Jason who she met in Spain whilst on holiday. Elaine is staying at The Queen Victoria as her pub is being refurbished but when her and Linda have a disagreement about her relationship with Jason, Elaine books a Taxi to go elsewhere, they then make up which then leads Eliane and Jason staying at the Vic.
