The Carter clan seems to be in a permanent state of crisis at the moment, but Shirley (Linda Henry) will up the ante even further at Stan’s wake.
As the tension grows between the two Carter camps, Shirley decides that they can no longer run the Vic together and takes drastic action when she cuts the pub’s licensee plate into two pieces.
Using building equipment, she severs the plate and then hands one half to a shocked Mick (Danny Dyer) and Linda (Kellie Bright).
The family has been divided ever since the revelation about Dean raping Linda came to light, with mum Shirley forced to choose between her two sons. But how will Mick react to this latest decisive move by Shirl? Find out when EastEnders airs these scenes tonight at 7.30pm on BBC1.
