As many viewers already know, Stuart Highway nearly destroyed Mick Carter’s (Danny Dyer) life by trying to frame him for attempted murder. If that weren’t enough, he also put a wedge between him and his wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) in their marriage. Well, now Eastenders spoilers indicate that fans can expect a new twist in Stuart Highway’s (Ricky Champ) future and yes, it will also include the pub landlord. Here’s what you need to know.
It’s without a doubt that Stuart (played by actor Ricky Champ) and his behavior against the Carter family has been unforgivable, as he nearly framed Mick for shooting him. After being sent to prison for a crime that he didn’t commit, Mick Carter dealt with some serious mental issues behind bars. If that weren’t enough, his wife Linda tried to get her own revenge on Stuart by tricking him into a romance in hopes that he would confess what he did to Mick to her.
And while things have temporarily calmed down in Walford for now, it looks like the drama is going to pick up again. As a matter of fact, Rick Champ says that he is hoping viewers will have some empathy for his character in the coming weeks.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, the actor said, “Hopefully it’ll go some way to inspiring some empathy towards him. I think that there’s been a lot already, of confrontations with Mick, you know? So I think it was good, [but] we didn’t want to repeat that, and diminish the work that we’ve done already.”
Rick also hinted that there’s much more to come, as his character isn’t leaving Albert Square anytime soon. In fact, he says that viewers will be seeing a different side to Stuart. “I think that there’s been a lot already, of confrontations with Mick, you know? “So I think it was good, [but] we didn’t want to repeat that and diminish the work that we’ve done already.”
