Johnny Carter comes out to Mick on EastEnders

EastEnders viewers are set to see Danny Dyer’s character get some big news, when his on-screen son tells him he is gay.

The Carter family arrived on Albert Square at Christmas, when Danny’s character Mick took over The Vic and moved in with wife Linda (Kellie Bright), son Johnny (Sam Strike) and daughter Nancy (Maddy Hill).

But the family was thrown into turmoil when Johnny, who had been keeping his sexuality a secret, was outed by Nancy during a row at home.

Tonight’s episode sees Johnny finally tell his dad the truth, as Mick gives him a hug in an emotional scene between father and son.

Fans can see the drama at 8pm tonight (January 3) and find out how Mick reacts to the news.
