EastEnders’ Mick Carter will return to Albert Square on December 18th.
The Queen Vic landlord – played by Danny Dyer – will head back to the boozer after being released from prison, and he is set for revenge on his evil former pal Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ) after he framed him.
Despite being out of jail, Mick struggles to return to normality and he is hell-bent on getting Stuart back after he shot himself and then told police Mick was responsible for the act.
Mick will be reunited with wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), who has recently appeared to believe Stuart’s version of events, much to viewers’ shock.
However, she is playing a long game in an attempt to get a confession out of Stuart, which will even see her share a smooch with the calculating creep next week.
Kellie and Ricky recently shot a special two-hander episode, which will air on December 13 and involve just their two characters.
The 42-year-old actress admitted she felt “daunted” about filming the ep, but was “really honoured” to have been handed the project.
She said: “There’s something special about the two-handers and they don’t come along very often.
“I also felt daunted because we work so quickly here and you don’t get any extra time so it was a lot of preparation but I loved it.
“There was mixed emotions as I think I would’ve felt differently had it been with Danny, as I’m not used to working with Ricky as much – but I have to say he is absolutely brilliant and I really enjoyed it.”
