Danny Dyer as Mick Carter

Mick Carter will soon be back on Albert Square!

He’s coming back! After he’s had a break for personal reasons, Danny Dyer has returned to the EastEnders set. So we can expect to see loveable pub landlord Mick Carter back behind the bar at The Queen Vic very soon indeed.

Apparently the Cockney actor was all smiles as drove his lovely Porsche around Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire. An onlooker said: “He picked up his scripts for filming a couple of weeks back. The scenes are classic soap, full of emotion and drama."

The storyline that’s brought his character back into the fold is, of course, being kept under wrapps – but we’re sure it will be worth watching!

Mick disappeared from the screens in a scene that some viewers found bizarre, as he rushed into the family kitchen and announced that daughter Nancy (Maddy Gill) had been involved in a car accident while travelling in Bulgaria. The broke character used the last money in the kitty to book a flight. And then he was gone!
