Michael has been snubbed by Tyler (Tony Discipline) and Anthony (Matt Lapinskas) since his twisted revenge scheme was exposed in the summer, but the duo need his help in early February as they find themselves in trouble with Derek Branning.
As seen in the official spoilers for forthcoming episodes, Derek will soon threaten Anthony and Tyler for the money they owe him - sending the pair into a panic.
When the siblings don't have enough cash to pay Derek back, Albert Square's newest villain insists that they carry out a dodgy job for him instead - otherwise he'll break their legs.
While Tyler decides to go ahead with working for Derek, Anthony isn't keen and decides that it's time to ask Michael (Steve John Shepherd) for assistance.
However, reports in All About Soap and Soaplife have revealed that Michael deals with the request in a surprising fashion - locking Anthony in the boxing gym while he calls the police to report Derek!
Later, Tyler, Anthony and Michael are all at the scene of the dodgy job to see Derek's van surrounded by police officers. Will Michael end up regretting shopping in Derek? And will relations between him and his brothers get back on track?
EastEnders airs these scenes on Thursday, February 2 at 7.30pm on BBC One.
