Lee Carter spirals out of control

Lee Carter’s downward spiral continues, next week on EastEnders.
.
Viewers have seen Lee Carter struggle with his depression over the past few months. Lee has also come to rely on drinking as a way to cope while keeping Whitney and his family at arms length and refusing their help. The incident with Stacey being electrocuted during her Halloween party seems to have pushed him closer the edge.

Things seem spiralling out of control when he tries to pick a fight with his granddad Buster at Roxy and Dean’s engagement party at Beales restaurant.

Danny-Boy Hatchard who plays Lee has said: “Lee doesn’t want to accept the fact that he is struggling and needs help. He doesn’t want to feel like he is letting go of his masculinity and pride.”
He has also praised the EastEnders research team who have worked with the charity ‘Mind’ to ensure the tough storyline was portrayed in the correct manner.
 .
EastEnders airs these scenes on 12 November on BBC One and BBC One HD.
