SPOILER ALERT: EastEnders' Mick Carter squares up to Dean Wicks in The Queen Vic after his rapist brother crashes karaoke night

The pub landlord has only just returned to Albert Square after two weeks away following the discovery his brother Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) had raped his wife Linda (Kellie Bright).

And in an upcoming episode of EastEnders, Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) is set to have a sibling showdown with Dean for one of the first times since they came to blows over Christmas when Linda's secret was outed.

The Queen Vic boss is fuming when Dean crashes his karaoke night and turns up for a drink at the pub with Denise Fox, Kim Fox and Patrick Trueman.

Things go from bad to worse when a defiant Dean refuses to leave, leaving their mother Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) to step in.

The soap matriarch pleads with him to listen, but viewers will have to wait until January 29 at 7.30pm to find out how the situation unfolds.

There's plenty of drama ahead for the Carter family on the BBC One soap this month.

Shirley will finally decided to tell Mick why she waited so long to reveal she was his mother and not his sister, as he was led to believe.

Meanwhile, Mick and Linda will finally go to the police this coming week to report the rape.

They will head straight to the authorities after Shirley tries to persuade the pub landlady that Dean is innocent.

Though they are getting the police involved, the soap's executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins revealed that Dean won't be facing justice through the courts.

'In real life, a lot of people don't get their comeuppance. There will have to be a satisfying ending to the story, but it won't be what you expect,' he said back in October.

'The easy and wrong way to tell the story would be to have Dean arrested and taken off to prison. I'd loved to have done a big trial, but there won't be one.'
