Kellie Bright will make a return to EastEnders in next week’s episodes as the Carters mark Linda’s 40th birthday. But will the party be a success?
As fans of the BBC1 soap know, Mick has cheated on his wife while she’s been away nursing her sick mother – the Queen Vic landlord having shared a kiss with Whitney.
So it’s no wonder that a guilty Mick is so intent on giving Linda a birthday bash to remember – though his efforts are called into question by Shirley, who asks why he’s trying to make the occasion so perfect.
But, as ever with so-called celebrations on EastEnders, events don’t go to plan. In scenes to be shown on Friday 30 June, an on-edge Mick gets an unexpected visit from businesswoman Fi Browning, just as Linda has arrived back on the scene.
So will Fi’s presence lead to wrangling between the Carters over the recent deal that saw the freehold signed away on the pub without Mick knowing?
And will the truth end up coming out about what Mick then ended up doing with Whitney?
