Running up until 2006 when the cells were finally slammed shut for good, Bad Girls focused on the relationships between the prisoners and staff at the notorious Larkhall prison.

The eight-part series tackled sensitive topics such bullying, rape, suicide, miscarriage and drug use.

Yvonne’s death was EastEnders‘ gain as actress Linda Henry headed to Walford in December 2006.

It wasn’t actually the first time she had appeared on the soap, as Linda was the original actor who played Lorraine Salter back in the 1990s.
