EastEnders fans cheered on Shirley Carter as she attacked paedophile Katy Lewis.
Earlier this year, Mick realised he could be Frankie Lewis’s father after she revealed her mum is Katy.
However Katy was a carer at Mick’s childhood care home when he was just 12.
Katy denied Mick being Frankie’s father and tried to manipulate him into believing he was remembering his past wrong.
But on New Year’s, Mick realised that Katy had abused him as a child.
In last night’s episode (Monday, January 11) the police were called on Katy. But when they turned up at her house, Katy slipped out of her home and over to Mick’s.
She told Mick that she would tell the police that Mick was the one who raped her. However Katy soon changed her tactic, saying the time she and Mick spent together was special.
But Mick told her she was a paedophile. She tried to convince Mick to deny it if the police come to talk to him, however they didn’t realise Mick’s mum Shirley had overheard everything!
Shirley soon chased Katy out onto Albert Square where she punched her in the face. But she didn’t stop there, proceeding to kick Katy multiple times.
Shirley then called the police to report an assault. Meanwhile, viewers cheered on Shirley for attacking Katy.
Not a supporter of violence but Shirley did what she had to do 🙂 #EastEnders
