The Carter family are set to be rocked when Mick is wrongly arrested in Walford, in an incident which leaves his wife Linda wondering if she can trust him.
Fans of ‘EastEnders’ already know that Ian is being blackmailed by Raine, who is threatening to reveal that he paid to spend the night with her on the day his daughter was murdered.
In a bid to help Ian, whose fiancée Denise wouldn’t be too happy to hear about his infidelity, Mick apparently goes in search of Raine.
The Daily Star reports that, despite his pleas with the police, he is then arrested for kerb crawling.
However, it’s possible that Mick stands by his pal and refuses to reveal the truth.
“Mick is an honourable family man but he’s also a loyal friend,” the source adds. “So will he reveal the truth about what he’s doing to save his own reputation or keep quiet to protect Ian, who, let’s face it, has been through enough recently?”
The Lucy Beale murder case is still on-going and the police aren’t exactly short of suspects, however, the investigation could be jeopardised by Max Branning, who has started a relationship with one of the officers in charge.
