Linda betrays Nish and reveals Vic's new owner in EastEnders | The Sun
JANINE Butcher has left her and Mick's share of the Vic for sale, prompting several buyers to pester Linda Carter.
After making a deal with Nish Panesar, the pub landlady turns on him by revealing the new owner next week in EastEnders.
Linda (portrayed by Kellie Bright) was devastated when she was told Janine was putting up her share of the iconic pub for sale – but her pal Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) was there to pick up the pieces.
Sharon suggested she became the new owner of the Vic to keep Linda and her family off the streets.
This was until Linda was faced with the businesswoman's rigid ways and a counter-offer from Suki and Nish Panesar (Balvinder Sopal and Navin Chowdhry).
The landlady wasn't fully convinced by either buyer and, soon enough, BBC One viewers caught her making a phone call to a mystery individual.

With all three buyers unaware of the situation next week, Linda struggles to be honest with Sharon about her plans for The Vic while the Panesars continue to operate as though the deal is done.
Things go from bad to worse when Linda receives news about her lost husband Mick and Suki overhears her breaking down.
Suki tells Nish there are no more obstacles to them sealing The Vic deal unaware that Linda is on the phone with a mystery caller as she explains she's only keeping the Panesars on the hook until they've got the cash sorted.
In later scenes, Linda lets Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) know she's been lying to Sharon and Nish in case her buyer doesn't come through.
