The last time Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) came face to face with Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) at the Queen Vic, he ended up chucking Linda’s rapist through the Christmas dinner table before punching him in the face.
So will it be round two when Dean turns up at the Walford boozer for the Carters’ karaoke night?
Scenes to be shown on Thursday 29 January will see Mick and Linda (Kellie Bright) putting on a brave face with a night of singing for the punters. But their efforts are disrupted when a riled Dean turns up to join Denise, Patrick and Kim for a drink.
An angry Mick tells Dean to leave but Dean insists on staying despite Shirley’s pleas for him to go outside. How will Mick react and why is Shirley so desperate to get him out of the pub?
