James "Jimbo" Wicks is the son of Shirley Carter and Kevin Wicks, who died of Cystic Fibrosis, only being shown in an old home movie on 23 April 2007.

Backstory[]

When Shirley gave birth to Jimbo it was like a second chance, until he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis.

The doctors would to strap Jimbo to a board almost upside down to try and clear his lungs. He'd be coughing, going red. It was like torture, Shirley went with him a couple of times, but just couldn't cope. Shirley blamed herself for Jimbo's condition (27 April 2015).

His brother Dean Wicks started calling himself "Deano" in memory of Jimbo, as they were best friends as well as brothers. Carly Wicks named her son Jimmy after Jimbo.
