A TV source said: “Explaining the characters would appeal to fans who’ll be intrigued to see what underlying experiences sparked their actions.

“Bosses feel it would be the best direction to go in.”

Joanne, 37, previously teased that there was a potential “offshoot” story if it proved successful.

The penultimate episode is on Monday.
