Karen Taylor (played by Lorraine Stanley) and Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) have had their ups and downs a couple as they were brought back together by the death of their daughter Chantelle Atkins (Jessica Plummer). The exes also turned over a new leaf this year as Mitch put his shady past behind him and stepped up co-parenting their young daughter Bailey Baker (Kara-Leah Fernandes). Now, stepping into the New Year could see the couple reunite for good and give their relationship another shot.
In upcoming scenes, Mitch is frustrated to be relegated to the sofa when there’s a roof leak in his bedroom, and Bailey insists he’ll have to share with Banjo.
Fed up, he asks both Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) and Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) if he can stay with them with no success.
Later, when Karen finds Mitch sleeping in the laundrette, she gives in and says they can share a room for the time being.
Will this be the start of their relationship rekindling?

Could the pair step into the new year together?
Actress Lorraine previously spoke about Mitch and Karen’s relationship, hinting they could reunite.
She explained to Metro: “She loves him very much.
“Deep down, she cares about him. I think he cares about her, too. They have such a good co-parenting relationship, and they even live together.”
“I think their background story was that he used to cheat on her a lot, and so now that they are separate but living together.
“So, he gets a feel of what it’s like to have someone he loves to go out with other people, even though they’re single.
“I secretly hope that they get back together. They’re good for each other, and he is the father of two of her children, so there’s always a love shared.”
Fans of the show have their theories on the pair’s relationship and took to social media to share their hopes they will reunite.
