EastEnders' couple Mick and Linda Carter appear to be drifting further and further apart

EastEnders fans will finally get to learn Linda Carter’s big secret on the soap next week.

The Albert Square resident, played by Kellie Bright, has been keeping something from husband Mick (Danny Dyer) since she returned to the programme after some time away.

However, rather than telling Mick what has been plaguing her, she will spill the beans to Jack Branning (Scott Maslen).

Viewers have seen Linda battling with something that has been plaguing her, but have yet to discover exactly what it is.

She will also be seen making a huge decision about the future of her marriage, which has been on a knife edge following the reveal of Mick’s kiss with Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty).

After a meeting with Whitney, Linda is surprised to be assured by her that Mick only has eyes for her. But Whitney’s words only add to Linda’s turmoil over what to do about her relationship.

This will all take place within a dramatic week in EastEnders, as it is due to be rocked by a huge gas explosion during the Walford In Bloom celebrations.

Panic ensues as the Mitchells realise that Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) was near the site of the explosion, and Martin Fowler (James Bye) becomes concerned when he is unable to find Stacey Fowler (Lacey Turner).

Kellie recently returned to EastEnders after being away for maternity leave.

These episodes will screen from Monday, September 4 on BBC1.
