EastEnders rapist, Dean Wicks, is set to go on trial next week and he's definitely still in denial of his shocking crimes, delivering a shock 'not guilty' plea from the dock that sends shockwaves through Albert Square.

This means that Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) and Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) will have to relive their terrifying ordeals as they take to the dock to testify against him.
