I kissed Whit­ney!

Linda re­turns to The Vic, where Mick makes a shock­ing con­fes­sion to her

Linda never thought Mick would stray – it’s not in his

na­ture

There’s trou­ble at The

Vic this week, and we’re not talk­ing about Fi Brown­ing try­ing to flog ar­ti­san beer. Linda’s fi­nally back with the faarmly af­ter stay­ing with her mum Elaine for what feels like three years, and with her and Whit­ney liv­ing un­der the same roof, Mick is feel­ing the strain. Fi­nally, he cracks and tells his pre­cious ‘L’ ex­actly what he got up to while she was away.

Mick’s on ten­ter­hooks from the minute his mis­sus ar­rives home. He toys with the idea of com­ing clean straight away, but keeps sch­tum as Linda bus­ies her­self get­ting things back on track.

The pres­sure starts to build, though, when Linda urges Mick to sup­port Whit­ney’s en­gage­ment to Woody – which is the last thing he wants to do. Pick­ing up on her hus­band’s cagey be­hav­iour, she asks Johnny what’s go­ing on. Linda then has a run-in with Shirley, who re­veals just how much her son has strug­gled with­out her. Feel­ing bad that he’s suf­fered in si­lence, Linda tells Mick that, from now on, there must be no more se­crets, and he then de­cides to bite the bul­let and fess up. What fol­lows is a dra­matic three-han­der episode with Linda, Mick and Whit­ney, in which the Carters’ re­la­tion­ship – once the most solid in the Square – is hang­ing by a thread.

‘Mick doesn’t men­tion Whit­ney’s name at first – he just says that he kissed an­other woman,’ re­veals our East­end­ers mole.

‘Linda is dev­as­tated. She knows that things have been dif­fi­cult lately, but she never thought Mick would stray. It’s not in his na­ture.’

Ac­cu­sa­tions aren’t the only things be­ing hurled, and Linda’s anger steps up a gear when she re­alises that Whit­ney is the other woman. Adds our mole: ‘Whit­ney then gets caught up in the furore. As ten­sions es­ca­late, Mick hits back and gives Linda some home truths.’

The fam­ily soon re­alise that all’s not well be­tween the cou­ple, and Linda is faced with a bar­rage of ques­tions. As she strug­gles to hold it to­gether, Mick meets up with Jack and off­loads over a beer. Can Jack con­vince his friend to fight for his mar­riage?

Show­down: How will Linda re­act when Mick tells all?
