MICK Carter’s decision to evict Woody Woodward did NOT go down well with EastEnders viewers.
Friday night’s explosive episode saw Mick Carter return to EastEnders after months away from Albert Square.
But his comeback proved rather eventful as he caught newcomer Woody Woodward in bed with daughter-in-law Whitney Carter.
Mick naturally erupted when he caught the two in his own bed and soon kicked off at Woody.
After coming to blows with the newcomer, Mick abruptly turfed Woody out of Queen Vic.
Woody had only been in EastEnders for a matter of months when Blue star Lee Ryan made his debut.
And the character had slowly began to build up a legion of fans as viewers warmed to the cheeky-chappy lad.
However, after after Mick sent him on his way, viewers were devastated to see him go.
While many others took to social media to express their sadness that the character is leaving the soap.
“No Woody. Don't go!!!!!!!!! Stay!!!!!!! @OfficialLeeRyan #EastEnders,” begged one character.
While another commented: “I just started to like Lee Ryan's character, and now he's leaving!”
A third urged: “Please come bk woody #eastenders @OfficialLeeRyan can't believe mick hit him !!!”
A fourth fumed at Mick, ranting: “Can't stand mick now after telling woody to leave #EastEnders.”
“A permanent role for @OfficialLeeRyan on #EastEnders please,” requested a fifth.
Another account fumed at the landlord, saying: “I never thought I would ever say this but I hate Mick right now for making Woody leave!!!!!! @MrDDyer @OfficialLeeRyan #EastEnders.”
With another adding: “Can we start a petition to get #woody back? He fitted in so good. #EastEnders.”
But Mick’s troubles with Woody will be the last of his problems when he discovers that Shirley sold the lease for the Queen Vic to Max Branning.
And as the new EastEnders trailer show, Mick loses his cool and vows to take revenge on Max Branning.
