    EastEnders fans are convinced that Shirley Carter (played by Linda Henry) will return to Albert Square after an emotional exit after Mick Carter’s disappearance.

    Only recently, Mick appeared to be “killed off” on Sunday’s episode as he bowed out of the BBC One soap after nine years on the show.

    Mick tried to leave his ex-wife Linda Carter, who he had just reunited with, after she and Janine Butcher drove off a cliff and into the English Channel, where he disappeared at sea.

    Ever since the incident, Shirley has been struggling to cope and decided to leave Walford to stay with her daughter Carly Wicks leaving fans devastated.

    But after watching the tear-jerking episode, viewers quickly picked themselves back up after they worked out the iconic star would soon return to the show after spotting a tell-tale musical clue.

    At the end of the episode, fans expected to say goodbye to the loveable character whilst listening to Julia’s Theme tune which is reserved strictly for special occasions.

    However, the blonde bombshell waved goodbye to Albert Square with the usual theme tune playing in the background, hinting that the staple character won’t be gone for good.

    Fans soon flooded to Twitter to share their suspicions online as they bid a fond farewell to the longstanding character.

    One user penned: “Maybe Shirley didn’t get Julia’s theme because she’ll be back [fingers crossed emoji] # EastEnders.”

    Another echoed: “I hope we haven’t seen the last of #ShirleyCarter if it was she at least deserved a Julia’s Theme exit #EastEnders.”

    A third agreed: “Shirley will be back. No Julia’s theme exit. #EastEnders” as another pointed out: “Wish that they had put on Julia’s theme for Shirley’s last walk on the square for this year in #EastEnders.

    “Hope to see her return as such as iconic character and love the dynamics between her and Denise who would propably still be rivals ordinarily!”

    Meanwhile, one fan gushed: “#EastEnders that ending with Shirley leaving with lady dye, goodbye for now Shirley [crying emoji, heart broken emoji].”

    It comes after a BBC spokesperson later told Digital Spy: "Linda Henry will be returning to EastEnders."
