A chaotic week awaits in Walford for some (Picture: BBC)

Lives are on the line and secrets are revealed in what can only be described as a truly unmissable week of EastEnders.

Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) is left fighting for her life, after a proposed trip to Watford with Nancy (Maddy Hill) ends in tragedy.

The landlady of the Queen Vic hits the bottle by the side of a road, after a falling out with her daughter. Janine, meanwhile, shows up to take her home, but she loses control of the vehicle, resulting in a deadly crash.

Janine wakes up. Linda, however, is in a seriously bad way. Will she die?

Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden), meanwhile, opens up to mum Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) about his devastating rape ordeal.

Reeling, she does everything she can to support Ben. Ben, however, needs some space, and thus he rushes out, but he later returns, much to Kathy’s relief, and opens up about what happened.

After a heart-to-heart, Kathy encourages him to go to the police – but Ben refuses.

It’s all kicking off in Walford next week, and here’s your first look at all the drama to come.

EastEnders airs these scenes w/c Monday June 6 on BBC One.
