EastEnders aired the final episode of it's dramatic 35th anniversary week this evening.

Fans of the BBC One soap took to their keyboards as they pointed out that Mick previously admitted he couldn't swim.

Die hard fans of the soap will know that Mick eventually learned to swim and, despite having a phobia of water, signed up to a sponsored swim in aid of Billy Mitchell's young daughter, Janet Mitchell, who has Down's syndrome.

The boat party ended as Sharon Mitchell's (Letitia Dean) son Dennis Rickman (Bleu Landua) drowned just moments after his mum gave birth to a baby boy.

It seemed the schoolboy has survived after Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) used a fire extinguisher to break down the door of the room he locked Dennis in.

However, a surge of water rushed towards the pair an they were both pulled out of water unconscious.

In heartbreaking scenes, a paramedic claimed there were two suspected fatalities as they started to resuscitate Dennis' body.

Sharon blamed herself for her son's death after she was told the earth shattering news by former lover Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).

EastEnders continues on Monday on BBC One at 8pm
