How bad will Linda’s injuries be? (Picture: BBC)

Mick Carter’s (Danny Dyer) world comes crashing down in EastEnders next week, as he receives terrible news about soulmate Linda (Kellie Bright), who is involved in a devastating car crash.

Linda, intent on spilling the beans about Janine Butcher’s (Charlie Brooks) scheming, sets off on a trip to Watford with daughter Nancy (Maddy Hill).

Nancy, however, get wind of the fact that Linda contemplated leaving the Square several weeks ago, and thus a confrontation ensues between she and her mum.

Linda attempts to explain herself, but Nancy storms off, abandoning her mum and sister Annie by the side of the road.

Janine, meanwhile, is worried sick that Linda will tell all about her role in Nancy and Zack Hudson (James Farrar) losing their money, but when Nancy returns to the pub in a foul mood, she realises she doesn’t know anything.

The schemer’s attention, however, moves to Linda, who attempts to get in touch with Mick. Janine intercepts the call, determined to keep the couple apart, as she sets off to retrieve Linda and Annie herself.

Linda is less than pleased to see Janine, and who could blame her after the chaos that she’s caused? Janine, however, manages to get the car started, and thus she sets off home with Linda and Annie in tow.

Tragedy strikes, however, as Janine loses control of the vehicle, resulting in a devastating crash.

Janine wakes up soon afterwards, but Linda is severely wounded, leaving Janine in a panic, as she shows her true colours once more.

Mick, meanwhile, is left in shock when he receives word that Linda has been in a car crash and that she’s in a serious condition.

What’s more, he’s informed that she might not make it. Say it ain’t so!

Will Linda pull through? What’s more, will Linda’s hospitalisation make Mick realise that it’s Linda he wants to be with? If so, will it be too late to tell her?
