The slimy entrepreneur – played by Steve John Shepherd – won’t let the fact that he is dating Ronnie’s feisty sister Roxy (Rita Simons) come in the way of his love for the disturbed blonde, and will even be seen rifling through her underwear drawer and watching her sleep.
Attempting to turn is girlfriend into a carbon copy of her sister, Michael will also convince Roxy to start wearing the same person as Ronnie (Samantha Womack), who is currently holed up on police bail after admitted to swapping her dead son James with Kat Moon’s tot Tommy on New Year’s Eve (31.12.10).
However, the creepy situation takes a turn for the worse when the sinister slimeball starts spreading rumours about Ronnie around Albert Square and interfering with Kat and Alfie’s (Jessie Wallace and Shane Richie) relationship.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: “Everyone knows Michael has a mean streak but he is set to get a whole lot worse. He’s trying to meddle in as many people’s lives as possible.
“It seems he wants Ronnie all to himself. But what exactly is he up to?”
The sinister scenes are being filmed for the BBC One soap at the moment and will hit screens this summer.
