It’s crunch time for Mick and Linda. Will they re­unite or go their sep­a­rate ways?

It’s not just the ales and snacks that have changed be­yond recog­ni­tion in The Queen Vic this year. Mick Carter has mys­te­ri­ously meta­mor­phosed from a loyal, lov­ing hus­band who wor­ships the ground his wife walks on, to a naughty phi­lan­derer.

The re­sult was a near-af­fair with former daugh­ter-in-law Whit­ney, which has put his mar­riage to Linda in cri­sis. As he and the mis­sus have a deep and mean­ing­ful on the pub roof this week, can they sort out their re­la­tion­ship?

Though Mick has done his best to make amends with ‘L’, his ef­forts have fallen flat, and she’s still giv­ing him the cold shoul­der. Things go from bad to worse when Shirley sticks her beak in, and in­vites Woody and Whit­ney to lunch. She thinks that if the two cou­ples are stuck in a room to­gether, Linda will see for her­self that Mick has moved on from Whit. But, in­evitably, it’s a com­plete disas­ter.

‘Linda gets drunk and flirts with Woody to get back at Mick, which is a bit cringe­wor­thy,’ re­veals our East­end­ers mole. ‘As she keeps on drink­ing, her anger bub­bles to the sur­face and she tells Woody what Whit­ney and Mick got up to.’

No­body has an ap­petite for pud­ding af­ter that, and as Whit­ney and Woody head off, Mick and Linda have another ‘rar’, in which Linda ad­mits she’s not sure she can get over his in­dis­cre­tion.

Mick’s at a loss over what to do, and when he and Linda later end up on the pub roof, he re­alises they’re in trou­ble. As his tear­ful wife gazes out across the Square, he tells her that if she can’t move on, their mar­riage could be over.

Linda is in no mood for an ul­ti­ma­tum, and Mick’s at­tempt to apol­o­gise with a spe­cial gift falls far wide of the mark. At her wits’ end, she heads across the Square to have a frank talk with Sharon.

If any­one knows about for­give­ness, it’s Shazza – how many times has Phil kept se­crets from her? As Linda opens up about her woes, can Sharon per­suade her to fight for her man?
