Danny Dyer will return to EastEnders in scenes to be shown on Friday 19 May – but will Mick find out about what’s been going on at the Queen Vic?
In his absence, Shirley (Linda Henry) has of course signed away the freehold on the Walford boozer, forging her son’s signature in the process.
And with Mick taking a look at the paperwork, it can surely only be a matter of time before he discovers the truth?
Plus, there are other questions that are in need of answering too: for instance, what will Mick make of new bar manager (Lee Ryan), who has been making his presence felt since the Carter patriarch left for Bulgaria in order to look after a sick Nancy?
And then there’s Fi Browning (Lisa Faulkner), the businesswoman whose orders for staff cutbacks resulted in the sacking of Tracey?
Finally, with wife Linda still absent, will Mick be turning to Whitney (Shona McGarty) as a source of support? She’s made her feelings plain in the past, but is Mick now starting to feel the same way?
