Refereeing the children's football match with his pal Mitch Baker, Mick gets into a spot of trouble.

But as the man continues to shout and goad Mick, things become too much and he clutches his chest before collapsing to the ground.

An EastEnders source told the Daily Star Sunday: "Mick's got a lot of stress in his life and hasn't really been taking care of his physical or mental health.

"He's running a boozer, juggling being a husband and a dad, working with Mitch coaching the football team, and then there's little Ollie's autism assessment.

"It's all set to contribute to his overall health and wellbeing in the coming weeks."

"We jumped at the chance to be involved because we recognised that it was a fantastic opportunity to help millions of viewers understand more about the autism assessment process and what families go through in order to get a diagnosis."

Jon Sen, the soap's Executive Producer, said: "EastEnders has a history of doing ground-breaking stories that resonate with the nation. When Mick and Linda start to worry about Ollie's behaviour, they face various challenges as they search for the answers necessary to help their son.

"EastEnders has been privileged to work closely with the National Autistic Society to accurately depict the pressure and struggles that can be felt by parents as they begin this journey."
