EastEnders spoilers - Mick Carter becomes increasingly worried about Tina and Max Branning urges sick Ian to go for medical tests....
It’s Mick Carter's birthday in tonight’s EastEnders on at 8.05pm (See our TV Guide for full listings) but he can't help worrying about what’s happened to his sister, Tina.
Tina has never ever forgotten about his birthday before but when there's still no word from her Mick's fears escalate.
Linda suggests that they go out to celebrate but Mick's too preoccupied. Later, when Mick takes a phone call from Zsa Zsa, Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ) comes over and tells Linda he'll organise Mick's birthday celebrations much to Linda's dismay.
Meanwhile Jay Mitchell (Jamie Borthwick) realises Rainie has been earning extra cash on the side doing house clearances for their customers. As Jay tells Rainie she has to stop, he gets an idea.
Jay later tells Billy (Perry Fenwick) they should do the clearances together and split the money but Billy, still bruised by what happened with Honey (Emma Barton) and Jay, doesn’t seem impressed.
However, spurred on by his son, Billy finally agrees but as he does, he asks Jay about Honey again.
Jay reiterates that it was a mistake but as Billy leaves reassured, Jay catches sight of Honey who has overheard everything!
Elsewhere, Frankie Ellis (Rose Ayling-Ellis) is dropped home by the police again and Callum Highway (Tony Clay) reminds her she needs to stay out of trouble if she wants to work in Australia.
They are interrupted by Stuart who arrives inviting the two of them to Mick’s birthday party at The Vic. Frankie later pushes Stuart for information on Mick but when she realises Mick has no idea she's been invited, she's deflated.
She later sees Mick in the Square and pushes him for answers about her mum but Mick, still distracted about Tina's vanishing act, snaps, leading Frankie to rethink her future.
Meanwhile Max Branning (Jake Wood) continues to questions if Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) has been for any ‘tests’.
Ian can’t take much more, and tells Max to drop it insisting that Sharon would never hurt him. However after Max continues to push Ian, he eventually caves in. Will Ian go to the doctors and if so what is he about to discover?
After talking to her son, Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) arrives at The Vic with food for Ian and tells Sharon (Letitia Dean) he really needs to see a doctor.
As Sharon pushes back, Kathy snaps telling Sharon she knows her son is extremely unwell which piques Sharon’s conscience. Sharon soon comes to a decision and makes a call to Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) telling him she can’t go through with their plan after all.
EastEnders continues on Tuesday at 7.30pm on BBC1
