EastEnders Lindas return as she discovers ex Mick and evil Janine are together

EastEnders favourite Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) returns to Walford next week as Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) grows closer to Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks).

A solemn atmosphere hangs over the Square in upcoming scenes as the Carters prepare for Tina’s funeral.

At The Vic, Mick gets a shock when Linda turns up.

The pair quickly begin to bicker about everything and things get worse for Linda when daughter Nancy (Maddie Hill) gives her the cold shoulder.

At the crematorium, a tearful Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) shares a touching eulogy but Linda is distracted by Janine’s presence and recognises her as the person who told her to divorce Mick.

Mick begins his eulogy but he is overwhelmed with emotion and when Linda fails to support him, Janine rushes to comfort him.

With her blood boiling, an embarrassed Linda storms out and has a confrontation with Nancy.

Meanwhile, Zack Hudson (James Farrar) misses his cooking competition to support Nancy but after the drama with Linda, Nancy tells him to back off.

Alone with a mix of intense emotions, Linda begins to drink.

Linda drunkenly causes a scene at the crematorium as she rages at the Carters about Janine and a furious Shirley tells her she’s not welcome at the wake.

At The Vic, Shirley gives Janine her respect for supporting Mick but warns her not to cross a line.

Meanwhile, Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) spots a very drunk Linda storming over to The Vic but intercepts her and invites her back to hers.

Sharon tries to explain she needs a game plan to fight Janine but before she has a chance to finish, Linda rushes over to The Vic and confronts Janine for telling her to divorce Mick.

Later, Mick thanks Janine for all her support and the pair kiss. He quickly stops and tells Janine he wants to do this correctly.

He needs to finalise the divorce with Linda then they can be together.

Frankie Lewis (Rose Ayling-Ellis) catches Janine and Mick almost kissing and a flustered Mick does his best to hide what was happening.

Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) is shocked when Janine tells her about Mick and warns Janine that him and Linda are made for each other.

With Sonia’s words on her mind, Janine ends things with Mick.

Back at The Vic, a hungover Linda arrives to speak to Mick forcing Frankie to cover.

Mick later suggests to Janine they go away for a few days together and Janine convinces him to break the news to Linda that they’re an item.
