New pictures have revealed Mick Carter’s life will take another turn as he suffers a heart attack on the football pitch.
The local landlord and football fan is referring a kid’s match with Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) when he starts to feel unwell.
As Mick tries his best to settle fraying tempers between Mitch and the dad of the opposition he drops to the floor clutching his chest.
A foul goes unchallenged and just as Mick walks away, he collapses and a worried Mitch rushes to his side.
On screen at the moment Mick is involved in a storyline with wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) as they try to get their son Ollie’s an appointment for his autism assessment.
Having already survived getting shot by Halfway is this one more death dodge for Mick or is his time up?
