Christmas 2014 hasn’t been the best for Mick Carter. He’s found out that Linda was raped by Dean and that Shirley is his mum and not his sister. And now – after Linda’s decision to leave town – Mick has gone and smashed up the Queen Vic.
Scenes to be shown this evening will see Mick trying to make sense of everything and growing increasingly determined to get his beloved Linda back.
Stan is on hand to offer comfort and advice, but the Crater family patriarch – who is also suffering with terminal cancer – will also find time to confront Sylvie about the truths she has kept from him all the years. How could she let him believe that Mick was his?
You can see events unfold from 8pm this evening on BBC1. And you can re-watch the scene in which Mick vented his fury on the Walford boozer below:
