Buster Briggs (Karl Howman) is to make a return to Albert Square with plans to take Shirley (Linda Henry) off to Greece.
Career criminal Buster – who was last seen being carted off by the police last November – will make a comeback in order to offer Shirl a new life overseas.
But it isn’t long before Buster is coming to blows with Mick (Danny Dyer) after all the fissures within the Carter clan resurface thanks to his reappearance. However, by the end of the week, Buster is doing his best to build bridges in order to worm his way into the household.
The character of Buster Briggs was introduced last year as a former love interest of Shirley Carter and was soon revealed to be the father of both Dean (Matt Di Angelo) and Mick.
