It’s not looking good for Mick after he pulled out of Aidan’s evil plan

It wouldn’t be Christmas in EastEnders without a lot of misery but fans are convinced it’s going to be Mick Carter’s last festive period on the Square.

Viewers watched as he bravely backed out of evil Aidan’s scheming during Friday night’s episode – but the Irishman wasn’t impressed and issued a thinly veiled threat towards Mick.

Aidan told Mick: ‘If you should breathe a word of our plan, your darling missus might just be making a call to our new friend the undertaker.’ He was later seen measuring up a coffin!

Concerned fans took to social media to reveal their theories, with one writing: ‘I like Aidan but please don’t hurt Mick!’

Another said: ‘That coffin is Mick Carter size.’ And a third added: ‘Mick is as good as brown bread.’

It comes after executive producer John Yorke confirmed someone would die over the festive period.

With Lauren and Abi Branning confirmed to be leaving the soap, as well as their dad Max out for revenge against those who wronged him, it seems nobody is safe in Albert Square this year…
