Mick Carter does his best to help out Linda Carter in Monday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Mick Carter is on a mission to help out his alcoholic ex wife Linda Carter despite the way she's been behaving towards him! He talks to Martin Fowler and Zack Hudson and begs them to let Linda move back in with them and Sharon Watts, after they kicked her out for her boozing.

Determined to get her some help with the drinking, he takes Linda out for a walk. Mick's new girlfriend Janine Butcher is fuming, especially when Mick's mum Shirley Carter delights in pointing out that the childhood sweethearts will always have a connection.

The walk is not the cosy time with Mick that Linda was expecting as it's soon clear he only took her out to convince her to go to an addiction meeting.

But Linda softens when he opens up about his abuse at the hands of his foster carer Katy Lewis and reveals how it's affected him. Touched by his words, Linda sees the light and admits that she does need help.

Back at the Queen Vic, Janine is NOT best pleased when Mick says he'll be going along to Linda's addiction meetings with her for moral support. Linda moves her things back into Sharon's but Zack is alarmed when he overhears her telling her little daughter Annie that she's going to get her husband back.
