Mitch had to work hard to win back the affections of Karen after first arriving, but within a few weeks they had reignited their romance and Mitch had also built bridges with his son, Keegan.

But it wasn’t just stealing money that saw him eventually flee Walford. Mitch returned shortly after taking the cash, but it wasn’t long after his comeback that Karen discovered he was secretly married.
