Mick Carter will hit breaking point in next week’s EastEnders when he discovers that the Queen Vic’s leasehold has been sold without him knowing.
Viewers have already seen Shirley forge her son’s signature on the paperwork – a move that resulted in the Carters losing a lot of control over how the pub should be run.
But once Mick returns to Walford, he’ll quickly find out what Shirl has done after getting into conversation with businesswoman Fi Browning.
An annoyed Mick then does his best to find a loophole in the new lease, but ends up taking his anger out on Whitney.
Later on in the week, she and Johnny share their concerns and come up with an idea as to what could be done – but their plan doesn’t go down well and Johnny is eventually left to comfort a broken Mick.
By Friday, a desperate Mick has decided to set up a meeting with Fi to see if he can find a way out of the new contract. But has Shirley sealed the Carters’ fate and left Mick trapped? Or can anything be done about the business deal?
