EastEnders spoilers as Linda Carter is set for Christmas return in Janine plot

EastEnders fans will be in for a treat as the BBC soap sees the surprise return of Linda Carter, played by Kellie Bright, this Christmas.

The former landlady at The Queen Vic will come head-to-head with the manipulative tricks of Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) for the first time in more than seven years as the two characters will bump heads.

Janine Butcher, who plans to steal Mick (Danny Dyer) away from his loved ones this Christmas, won't stop at anything, as she continues to go to extreme lengths to get her claws into him.

In upcoming Christmas scenes, Janine finds out that Mick isn't spending Christmas with Linda, and is desperate to find out what's going on – making it her goal to track Linda down and create some mayhem.

Earlier in the year, Rainie Highway (Tanya Franks) discovered that Linda's newborn baby Annie was Max Branning's – which had caused Linda to think fast and on her feet.

In September, Linda fled Walford with baby Annie in fear that the tot's birth father, Max (Jake Wood), would return and try to take her away.

Mick left with Linda before returning later on, with his daughter Nancy (Maddy Hill) and mother Shirley (Linda Henry) still in Walford.

However, it doesn't take long until the manipulative Janine succeeds in hunting down Linda.

Mick and Linda's marriage will be put to the ultimate test as a result of Janine's meddling ways, but will the soulmates end up splitting?

Linda and Mick's marriage has experienced many challenges, including Linda's alcoholism and her fling with Max, to Mick's abuse turmoil, the couple have had it tough, and only this year were they able to get back on track finally.

However, now, with Janine's conniving ways, the pair will endure a new obstacle – Janine Butcher.

What does the future look like for Linda and Mick?

Linda's return will air in the episode that plays out on Tuesday, December 28.

EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays at 8pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
