It's all about the Carters this week on Albert Square and tonight sees them all get together for Lee's 22nd birthday. Aunt Babe puts pressure on Stan to tell them his news though and decides to intervene by telling the family herself that he has terminal cancer. With everyone in shock, Mick and Tina realise that they need Shirley back more than ever. Where IS Shirley anyways? Surely someone has told her by now Phil is alright and not going to the police? Elsewhere, looks like Dean and Stacey may actually become a couple, which actually would have been lovely news if we all didn't know what we knew about Dean....
