It's never exactly peaceful in Albert Square over Christmas, and true to form 'EastEnders' is set for some major drama again this Yuletide when Mick Carter smashes up the Queen Vic.
According to The Sun, Mick, played by Danny Dyer, sees red when he finally discovers that his wife Linda, was raped by Dean Wicks.
Viewers will see the Queen Vic landlord completely lose it in the pub, launching the bust of Queen Victoria into the bar before smashing up the packed boozer.
A show source told The Sun: “This is going to be one of the most explosive episodes in EastEnders history.
“Viewers will be stunned by just how mad Mick goes. The Vic is the most iconic place on Albert Square and there is something very symbolic about the bust behind the bar.
“Viewers have seen him be the most loving family man, who will go above and beyond for every one of them. But when he learns what happened to the woman he adores, he finds it impossible to control himself and flies into a rage.
“He goes berserk and picks up the Queen Vic bust and hurls it into the bar before smashing the place up.”
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Barbara Windsor will return as ‘EastEnders’ favourite Peggy Mitchell for the soap’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
The veteran actress will reprise her role as Peggy Mitchell for one episode in February.
