Passengers Peggy (Barbara Windsor) and Ben (Charlie Jones) jump out of the vehicle to find Pat lying motionless on the ground.

After being rushed to hospital, grandson Steven, played by Aaron Sidwell, 19, visits her in A&E to prevent her from spilling the beans.

He will be seen trying to smother her while she lies in bed.

The dramatic scenes will air on Monday on BBC1.
