Exciting news, EastEnders fans – you've only got two weeks left to wait until Danny Dyer makes his on-screen return.

Danny took a much-publicised break from his role as Mick Carter earlier this year, but he's been back filming for several weeks now and the Queen Vic will be getting its popular landlord back soon enough.

Word has now leaked out that Mick will be back in Walford from Friday, May 19 after time away taking care of his daughter Nancy in Bulgaria.

Mick rushed off to help Nancy on March 23 after receiving the news that she'd been hit by a car on her travels with her boyfriend Tamwar and was now being treated in a Bulgarian hospital.

Since then, things have gone from bad to worse for the Carter family with Lady Di's illness, the pub freehold being sold, Lee Ryan's character Woody causing a stir – and most shockingly of all, Tracey the Barmaid being sacked after 30 years of loyal service at the Queen Vic.

Little is known officially about what's in store for Mick once he's back, but there have been rumours that he'll have a must-see punch-up with Woody shortly after he returns. We can't wait!

Lee Ryan also said recently: "I love Danny, he's so great. I was really looking forward to working with him and we got some great scenes.

"It was only a short time we got to work together, but I can't say too much about that because I'm not allowed."

Before Mick left, he was also getting closer to his daughter-in-law Whitney, with fans fearing there was more to come between them following their secret kiss in January.

After some time away to reflect, will Mick still have a spark with Whitney or will he be keeping her at arm's length from now on?

EastEnders continues tonight (May 4) at 7.30pm on BBC One.
