Johnny Carter (Sam Strike) is to pack his bags and leave town next week after a fiery showdown with mum Linda (Kellie Bright).
The problems start after Johnny comes clean to his parents about failing some of his exams. Linda is forced to hide her disappointment but wastes no time in visiting Johnny’s university lecturer behind his back and asking him to reconsider her son’s results.
Later, Linda returns to the Vic where the Carters’ karaoke evening is in full swing. After finding out what she’s been up to, a furious Johnny persuades her to sing to a packed pub. As Linda belts a song out a song, it becomes clear just how terrible she is and that Johnny has stitched her up.
But an angry showdown between the pair results in Johnny saying some harsh words. As a result, he gathers his belongings and quits Walford. So have we really seen the last of Johnny? Find out when EastEnders airs these scenes on Tuesday 24 June.
