Over the past few months, viewers watched as Danny Dyer’s character Mick and his daughter-in-law Whitney Dean became close during a tumultuous time for the Carter family.

And fans were quick to share their immediate anger at the revelation, shocked that the golden couple could be torn apart by what is believed to be because of his affair with Whitney Dean.
