Maxine has had a troubled background - but there was a remarkable turnaround in her fortunes when Steph Haydock agreed she could stay with her. Maxine went back to school and made progress although she was easily led astray by Janeece, and fell headlong in love with the psychopathic Earl Kelly, whose tough guy image was only dropped when he was alone with her. Unfortunately, Earl couldn't change and their relationship came to an explosive end.
