EastEnders fans have taken to Twitter to share their favourite bit about last night's trip to Walford...

Last night saw the moment that EastEnders fans have all been waiting for - Mick Carter back behind the bar of the Queen Vic, right where he belongs.

But while everyone was pleased to see Mick out of prison after being locked up for a crime he didn't commit, eagle-eyed viewers noticed he wasn't looking half bad for someone who had spent the last few months at Her Majesty's pleasure.

As Mick was being reunited with his family last night, fans were taking to social media, joking that Mick was looking so 'glowing' that there must be sun beds in jail...

Of course while Mick has been locked up, Danny Dyer, who plays the pub landlord has had some time off from filming and enjoyed catching some winter rays.

Something that one fan was quick to point out...

Despite the hilarity caused by Mick's sun-kissed post-prison look, there was also plenty of drama in last night's trip to Walford.

Despite being happy to be home, Mick couldn't help but notice there were some changes that had been made in his absence.

But where the mixers were now kept behind the bar soon became the least of his worries when he discovered the lengths that Linda had gone to in order to get a confession out of Stuart.

Could Mick murder Stuart this Christmas in EastEnders?

He was also fuming to find Stuart was not only still in Walford but living across the Square with Dot. With nothing but revenge on his mind, Mick went to visit Stuart, but with Dot fussing with tea and cake the pair were forced to share strained pleasantries.

By the end of the episode it was clear that Mick wasn't going to let Stuart get away with what he had put him through over the last few months... but it was only when Stuart hinted that he had slept with Linda that Mick really saw red.

This Christmas will see more drama between the pair, but will the war between the former friends ever be over?

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
