What's on TV - - What’s On - bbc.co.uk/eas­ten­ders

The start of the new year has not been the hap­pi­est for Mick Carter. The pub land­lord has so far failed to boot his hated for­mer friend Stu­art High­way out of Al­bert Square, af­ter Stu­art framed Mick for a shoot­ing at The Vic and he was sent to prison.

Mick is also find­ing it hard to ac­cept how close his wife, Linda, and Stu­art got while he was be­hind bars, even though it was all part of Linda’s elab­o­rate plan to trick a con­fes­sion out of Stu­art about his pre­vi­ous crimes.

Mick snaps

This week, Mick tries to dis­tract him­self by help­ing Mitch Baker coach the lo­cal foot­ball team. But it’s not long be­fore Linda starts lec­tur­ing her hus­band about his re­spon­si­bil­i­ties at The Vic.

Linda’s then taken aback by Mick’s snap­pish be­hav­iour and is shocked when she later finds him an emo­tional wreck and re­alises that he is struggling to keep things to­gether.

When Linda de­mands to know what’s go­ing on, she’s left reel­ing as Mick drops some shock home truths about his time in prison...

‘The big thing that Mick comes back with is, “You left me in prison and I didn’t know what on Earth was go­ing on. How could you do that to me?”,’ ex­plains Kel­lie Bright, who plays Linda. ‘So what hap­pens is very test­ing for their re­la­tion­ship.’

Can Mick and Linda’s mar­riage sur­vive an­other almighty row?

‘Linda might seem a bit like Bar­bie on the out­side but in­side she’s tough,’ says Kel­lie. ‘The fall­out could have a much big­ger im­pact on her than she thinks.’

Struggling… Mick tells Linda he’s find­ing it hard to cope
