‘EastEnders’ fans were left distraught when it appeared Mick Carter was shot at the end of the New Year’s Day episode, but fans have shared a convincing theory about the circumstances surrounding it.

The 1 January episode saw the heist plot take centre stage, as Aidan and his team of Phil, Mick, Vincent and Keanu staged a robbery, intercepting a van being driven by men with guns to steal money from them. 

However, it went wrong when Mick (Danny Dyer) was shot by one of the men in the closing moments, and it seemed he knew the gunman. 

The credits revealed the character was called Callum ‘Halfway’ Highway, who Mick had actually received a text from earlier in the day.
