In brand new behind-the-scenes images from the Daily Star Sunday, Dean Wicks looks set to meet his deadly demise.

In action packed episodes set to air on New Year’s Day, Mick and Linda plan to get married however in traditional EastEnders fashion the day doesn’t go to plan.

When Dean ends up drowning in a lake, Mick Carter (played by Danny Dyer) jumps in to rescue his brother, despite Dean raping his wife-to-be.

It’s not clear how Dean ends up in the lake yet and show bosses are keeping tight-lipped about the stunt.

Last month it was revealed that Matt Di Angelo was leaving the BBC One soap and earlier this week it emerged that, in the build up to his explosive exit, Dean would try to rape Roxy Mitchell.

These scenes are expected to air on New Year’s Day.
