What Happened To Linda Baldwin?

Linda is married to the much older Mike Baldwin, probably due to his wealth. In September 2000, Mike and Linda both married at De Lisle House. Later that day, Mike finds out about Mark and Linda’s affair, eventually forgiving Linda. However, after an armed siege at Freshco in October, where Mike was held hostage, she was horrified to discover that one of the shooters was her brother, Dean.

Linda’s marriage to Mike started to sour. When Alma was diagnosed with cervical cancer, Mike thought to begin to stay with Amla’s side in her final days, and Mike was with her when Amla died. Linda was angry that Mike, spending so much time with his ex-wife, Amla, had an affair with one of his clients. Later, Mike realized that Alma was his true love and then fell out of love with Linda. Now Mike was aware she had only married him for his wealthy money. When Mike started up with Mark in the wake of his ex-wife’s death, Linda was furious to be asked for a divorce and made a failed attempt to restart her affair with Mark.

Mike catches Linda and orders her not to be in his life and to leave his life forever, which Linda insists, quickly driving off in his car. Sudden Linda’s disappearance from Weatherfield did not go unnoticed. When the car was found in the River Naven, Marsham, it was suspected by Linda’s family that Mike had murdered her. However, Linda’s father, Ray Sykes, eventually contacted his ex-wife Eve Elliott and told her that Linda was alive and now living with her wealthy fiancé in Dublin.

Her final appearance as that character was on 3rd September 2001 and didn’t film any exit scenes, so Linda made an appearance from a distance and was played by a double on 5th September 2001. It seems she was seen being forced into a car by Mike, and Chadwick later confirmed that she is not returning to the series. At last, Coronation Street marked her final television appearance as later she quit acting and started a career as an acting teacher and then a crime writer.
