Not the most conventional of mums, she can often be found accompanying (an unwilling) Ash on a night out - she even danced on the bar at the Spring Fling!
There is a dark side to Martha's party animal ways though. When Ash was diagnosed with meningitis, Martha struggled to cope with the stress and turned to the bottle - leaving poor Callum to deal with the crisis.

Carli has starred in a number of British soaps, sitcoms and dramas, including Eastenders, Doctors, Where the Heart Is and Holby City.
