Linda (played by Kellie Bright) has been trying to balance the scales of late on EastEnders in the Carter household, what with husband Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) suffering from panic attacks and the prospect of son Ollie Carter (Harry Farr) being autistic. As a release, The Queen Vic landlady has been turning to the bottle, believing her actions are going un-noticed. However, upcoming scenes will see another BBC soap character uncover her secret turmoil.
It’s fair to say, Linda and her mother-in-law Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) haven’t had the easiest of relationships Walford has ever seen.
Even though living under the same roof forced the pair to be civil to one another, this week’s episodes saw their feud resurface.
After Ollie’s grandmother assaulted one of the mothers at the school gate who made an unpleasant remark about her grandson, she came face-to-face with her at the E20 during Tuesday’s instalment.
The Carter matriarch was horrified her daughter-in-law failed to defend her and instead sided with the viper-tounged character, but the pub owner revealed she was keeping her on side to make her son’s life easier.

Tonight’s episode saw Linda finally give the mother what for as she was tired of the sly character making cutting remarks at her expense.
However, as a new week dawns, things are still likely to be frosty between the landlady and her mother-in-law.
Their feud resurfacing couldn’t come at a worse time as the troubled mother and husband Mick prepare to support their son at his autism assessment.
Before the anxious parents head off, Shirley notices her daughter-in-law has been displaying worrying behaviour.
