Linda Carter’s Master Plan? 😳 —EastEnders

Linda Carter has been acting strange. She’s turned her back on her husband Mick as he suffers in jail. She’s developed a “soft spot” for Stuart Highway. Linda has even invited him into the Queen Vic against her family’s wishes. Fans are saying it is totally out of character for …

Two Families Isn’t a Soap: EastEnders
