Shirley Carter and Buster Briggs visit Dean Wicks in prison next week to inform him that his grandfather, Stan, has died in hospital.
After being arrested for breaking the conditions to his bail in last night’s visit to Walford, Dean remains in prison throughout the rest of the week. Sadly, on Friday evening, Stan Carter passes away in hospital – meaning Dean never got to properly say goodbye.
The following week, Shirley and Buster make a visit to the prison to break the devastating news to Dean – causing him to break down into tears.
When Shirley leaves, Buster tries his best to comfort his son.
EastEnders airs these scenes Monday, 13th April at 8pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
