Spoilers: EastEnders' Shirley destroyed as Mick lashes out amid abuse story

Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) was left incredibly upset in EastEnders tonight (October 15), as Mick (Danny Dyer) lashed out at her, and accused her of never having Linda’s (Kellie Bright) back.

Mick’s behaviour over the past week or so has been a constant worry for Linda, as she’s concerned about why he’s being so distant.

Viewers will know that he recently discovered that Frankie Lewis (Rose Ayling-Ellis) is his biological daughter, but he had no idea she existed until last week.

However, it soon came to light that Frankie’s mum Katy had Frankie when Mick would’ve only been 12, meaning that Katy abused him.

Mick’s struggling to get his head round such a thing, and Frankie’s departure has left him all the more confused.

In tonight’s episode, Shirley got wind of the fact that Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) had been abusive towards Linda, and she jumped to her daughter-in-law’s defence.

However, Mick commented that she’s never had Linda’s back before — a statement which left Shirley incredibly upset.

Linda popped by to check on Shirley, and it became apparent that Shirley had started to realise that Mick’s bad mood and outburst are in relation to the fact that Katy Lewis had been mentioned in recent weeks.

Will Shirley work out the truth?
