EastEnders star Danny Dyer has said that his character, Mick Carter, is set for a very eventful Christmas on the BBC soap.

In the latest EastEnders bombshell, it has been revealed that Mick's onscreen sister Shirley (Linda Henry) is really his mother.

When asked by RadioTimes.com at the British Soap Awards about when Mick would discover the truth, actor Dyer replied: "I don't know what my reaction is going to be, but I can guarantee I'll have a Christmas hat on. Bit of turkey. Boom!"
