EastEnders landlord Mick Carter returns to Walford next week, but don’t expect his return to come without its fair share of drama. Danny Dyer took a highly-publicised break from his role as Mick earlier in the year, but he’s been back filming for a while now and upcoming scenes will see him back where he belongs in The Vic.
To explain Danny’s time away, Mick rushed off to help his daughter Nancy after receiving the news that she’d been hit by a car on her travels with her boyfriend Tamwar and has been looking after her in Bulgaria ever since. It was revealed last week that Mick would be back on screen from Friday, May 19 – and these brand new pictures now offer a first look at his comeback.The problem is, a lot has happened in Mick’s absence from the Square – most notably that his mother Shirley has sold the freehold on the pub, without his consent. Shirley was manipulated into selling the freehold by a devious Max Branning. Mick’s wife Linda approved the arrangement behind his back, leaving Shirley to forge his signature, but surely it’s only a matter of time before he discovers what has been going on?
