Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) is to find himself growing attracted to Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) in an upcoming episode.
Dean’s infatuation is set to grow when he offers Linda a pampering session at his salon Blades for her birthday. After helping Linda to unwind, Dean finds himself enjoying the one-to-one time with her and is made even happier when Mick (Danny Dyer) insists that he joins the rest of the family for a surprise birthday meal. Linda, however, remains mostly oblivious to Dean’s nascent feelings.
“He is a bit flirty. I don’t think she pays it any real attention, but she does enjoy it in a weird way,” actress Kellie Bright tells RadioTimes.com. “But, you know, she’s worked in a pub her whole life. Men flirt with her daily!”
Find out whether Linda will cotton on to Dean’s crush when EastEnders airs these scenes next week.
