EastEnders viewers baffled by snap of Mick Carter’s kids with different face

EastEnders viewers were left scratching their heads as they spotted the oddest thing in a photo of Mick Carter's children.

During the latest instalment of the BBC soap, Mick (Danny Dyer) proudly showed Scarlett Butcher a snap of three of his kids.

But as the camera honed in on the shot – which the Queen Vic landlord had pinned to a corkboard in the kitchen – eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed that something wasn't quite right.

The cheery family photo showed Mick and Linda's (Kellie Bright) daughter Nancy and sons Lee and Johnny – but the Johnny pictured wasn't the actor Ted Reilly, who played the character more recently.

It was Sam Strike, who was the original Johnny from 2013 to 2014.

Fans were quick to pick up on the swap.

"Original Johnny," one person posted on Twitter, along with a heart emoji.

"The first actor who played Johnny Carter is in that photo," pointed out another.

One tweeted: "Love how they use the og Johnny as their photos lmao."

"When you remember Johnny Carter 2.0," said another.

Another fan joked that seeing the original Johnny in pictures instead of the most recent Johnny was a little bit "awkward".

Some were pleased to get a peek at the original actor.

One wrote: "I love how they have Sam Strike's Johnny in the photo, the best Johnny."

Sam first appeared in Walford around Christmas in 2013.

He was a hit with fans of the soap and was particularly praised for moving scenes which saw Johnny coming out to his family.

The character waved goodbye to Albert Square close to a year later.

Johnny wasn't seen again until 2016 when he returned to the fold, but this time as actor Ted.

He stayed in Walford until 2018.
