Shirley (who is played by Linda Henry) will be stunned when she finds people dealing drugs in the pub’s toilets.
Sadly, this is not the first time The Vic has been used by dealers – as Masood Ahmed (Nitin Ganatra) recently discovered the same criminal activity.
When Mick (Danny Dyer) returns to Albert Square he will also make the same discovery and be forced to decide what to do next.
No longer in Manchester, Mick must plan his next move after finding out what has been going on in his absence.
The pub landlord attempts to put a stop to it but gets a nasty shock when he goes investigating.
Meanwhile, Vincent Hubbard (Richard Blackwood) contemplates fleeing Walford after gangster Aidan Maguire (Patrick Bergin) threatens him.
The Albert owner has been neck high in financial debt and despite promising to pay Aidan with the proceeds he makes selling the cocktail bar, he will soon learn that it is not good enough.
Determined to get his money sooner rather than later, Aidan demands Vincent goes with a quicker buyer.
Vincent goes along with Aidan’s plan but will be left devastated when he discovers that the sale of The Albert has fallen through.
Desperate to resolve the situation, Vincent searches for Kim’s engagement ring to sell but finds out it is missing.
In a bid to forget his troubles, Vincent plans a birthday party for Pearl but has it ruined when Aidan gives him a shocking 24-hour warning.
Feeling he has no other choice, Vincent urgently tries to sell The Albert but is confronted by Kim about missing the mortgage payment.
A distraught Vincent turns to his sister Donna for advice as he is unable to come clean to Kim.
Although Donna is unaware of how serious Vincent’s situation is, she still attempts to advise him.
However, her words of wisdom seem to give Vincent the idea to flee Walford and he leaves Kim a note explaining everything.
Just as he is about to runaway he receives a phone call from the estate agent, explaining that they have a new buyer who can pay the next day.
Will Vincent be able to sell The Albert and restore his life? Or will Aidan have to take matters into his own hands?
