NEWCOMER Avery Baker caused a stir upon his arrival in Albert Square, especially with his brother Mitch.
Determined to see the brothers get along, Karen Taylor hatches a plan next week in EastEnders.
This was only made worse when it was revealed Avery was fighting cancer.
Aware the brothers are struggling to make amends, as Mitch is more than reluctant to do so, Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) takes matters into her own hands next week.

She first tries to persuade Mitch to talk to Avery but he vehemently refuses.
While he doesn’t listen to Karen’s advice, another familiar and unexpected face in the Square will be a great help for Mitch to finally open up to Avery.
But the bonding doesn’t last long as Mitch soon holds resentment towards Avery and, fuming, asks him to leave altogether.
Karen, on the other hand is hellbent on getting them to talk to one another and puts the pressure on Mitch to give Avery a chance.

She goes a step further and orchestrates the meeting herself but Mitch never shows up.
But Karen isn’t one to give up that easily and brings the rest of the family to support Avery.
Meanwhile, Bernie and Bailey get an idea.
The girls head off to confront Mitch at the cab office – will he listen to what they have to say?
As mentioned above, Avery made his EastEnders debut in recent episode of the long-running drama.
He first got on the wrong side of market traders in the Square but nipped any conflict right in the bud by inviting them to The Vic with him.
This is where he bumped into his estranged brother Mitch for the first time in years.
Mitch was less than impressed to see him and things were made worse when Avery managed to impress the rest of his family.
