The Carter clan is set to extend their dominance over The Square this Spring as Deano Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) teams up with the newly-arrived Carter patriarch Stan (Timothy West).

Poor mum Shirley has been thinking that her son is working in Australia, so we can't wait to see how she reacts to the news that he's back in Walford and is going by the name of 'Dean'. Does the loss of the 'O' mean that Dean's all grown up?

Executive Producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins teases, "Deano left angry with his mother. The Dean who returns is angrier. Shirley has been secretly hoping for her son’s return. Let’s hope she doesn’t regret that.”

The ever-lovely Matt (pictured above in 2005) will begin filming his return scenes in February and says he's "looking forward to getting back to The Square".

We couldn't agree more, Matt!

    I for one, love the Carters, its about time we got someone more entertaining than the Mitchells. Danny Dyer rocks and I can't wait to see him and Phil get right up into each others faces. Hopefully it will make Phil take Sharon for a long trip off a short peer...... she is sooooo boring now.

    I'm fed up with Shirley Carter, I've always wondered how she got her money - camel coats aren't cheap. Also does the actor who plays Phil Mitchell have a clause in his contract saying he must ALWAYS have a love interest. As he is such an ugly little spud I just wondered. Masood is my favourite character . Would love Jane to come back instead of being in Waterloo Road.

    Having The Carter Family in EastEnders has i think given the show a much needed boost like a breath of fresh air ...And as for Danny Dyer he is Eye Candy for us gals Mmmm .

    So tired of seeing Shirley drinking, throwing up and acting like a fool. I don't imagine she will change for any of her kids, never did before. Her character is a terrible person, abandoned her children, an alcoholic, a scrounger, a thief, if anything she is worse than Phil. At least Phil owns up to his mistakes, she just acts like everyone owes her. Hope Dean gets the best of her. Unrealistic storyline she suddenly has a family that will put with her.
