Linda Carter makes a heartfelt plea to Nancy Carter. Meanwhile, Mitch Baker is hopeful the end is in sight for Bailey’s safe return.

Linda Carter is desperate not to lose her daughter again in Tuesday’s episode of EastEnders (7.30pm, see our TV Guide for full listings).

Linda Carter is still in shock after finding Zack Hudson sneaking around the Vic. She’s even more surprised when he lets slip that her daughter Nancy Carter is planning on moving out!

Linda knows that things have been bad between the two of them ever since Nancy returned back from abroad. She can’t deal with Nancy’s insistence that she never wants to have children and Nancy’s decision has split them apart.

Linda and Mick are horrified as Nancy packs her bags!

Still smarting after their last row, Nancy returns to the Vic and starts packing all her stuff into bags as an incredulous Linda and dad Mick Carter look on. The couple beg their daughter not to make a hasty decision and insist she would be much better off staying with them.

After listening to their heartfelt plea, Nancy softens, realising that they only want what’s best for her. She agrees to stay with them but she has one condition… She wants them to support her choice. Can Linda and Mick agree?

Mitch and Karen get great news

Mitch Baker and Karen Taylor continue their efforts to find runaway Bailey Baker. Now that her dog Banjo has been found, they know that she can’t be that far away.

As the couple continue their search, Mitch gets a surprise phone call. It’s Reg, the guy who bumped into Bailey the day before. It seems he was on the level when he told Bailey he knew her mum. 

After explaining to Mitch that he brought Bailey back with him, Reg encourages them to collect her right way. An elated Mitch and Karen arrive, full of hope that they will finally have her home with them. 

Will they get the news they want to hear?
