Mick Carter to smash up the Queen Vic
Mick Carter will reportedly smash up his own pub in 'EastEnders' when he discovers his wife was raped by Dean Wicks earlier this year
EastEnders' Mick Carter will smash up the Queen Vic when he finds out his wife was raped.
The pub landlord, played by Danny Dyer in the BBC One soap, will discover his wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) was raped by his nephew Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) - who he is yet to learn is actually his brother - during the festive season and will reportedly go "berserk".
A source told The Sun newspaper: "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."
Danny previously suggested Dean could be in serious trouble when Mick discovers the truth.
He said: "The audience will know that the bomb is going to go off.
"But they'll be asking themselves, 'How big is that bomb going to be?'
"And let me tell you, it's nuclear. I take insanity to a new level."
It's not yet known how Mick will find out about the devastating attack, but as Linda is set to confess what she's been through to Dean's girlfriend Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), she could be the one to break the news.
