Linda receives a huge shock when she returns to Walford in Monday’s Eastenders

Linda returns to the Square and Mick wonders if he should tell her the truth about what happened between him and Whitney. However, Linda senses that something isn’t right anyway and quizzes Johnny on what’s been going on.

Later, Linda realises how much Mick has needed her while she’s been away, so she suggests having no more secrets between them. However, Linda is shellshocked when Mick responds by making a confession.

Meanwhile, Abi and Max enjoy keeping Steven on edge as he continues to make plans for his wedding day.

Elsewhere, Josh attempts to make contact with Lauren, but she deletes his number.

Also today, Keanu searches for a new job, while Mr Pryce looks for flats in the area.
