There is speculation that an EastEnders character could flee Albert Square next week.

Warning: spoiler alert!

With his newborn daughter seriously ill, Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) packs a bag and looks set to make a hasty exit.

However, his plans are thwarted by Jean Slater (Gillian Wright), who tells him not to flee and that he is capable of loving someone else.

Fans can find out what Michael decides to do on BBC One and RTÉ One on Tuesday June 26.
