Mick Carter has something important to say in Monday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Stacey Slater asks ex-husband Martin Fowler for support in telling daughter Lily about what happened to Jean Slater in Southend. However, Martin is hesitant.

Jean's new partner Harvey Monroe tells Kat Slater his regret about what happened with Jean, until a panicked Stacey tells them that her car won't start. Harvey drives her to the hospital and decides to go inside with her after seeing how nervous she is.

Meanwhile, Martin seeks advice from Zack Hudson on whether he and Stacey should tell Lily about what happened. With Zack's reassuring words, Martin starts to think that it is the right thing to do after all. 

However, when Stacey returns, she sends Lily off and tells Martin that she's changed her mind and wants to protect Lily. The pair start to argue and Lily overhears.
