Viewers found out weeks ago that the real reason “L” had been staying with her mum Elaine was because she discovered she had cancer but wanted to protect Mick from the truth. But while she kept her hubby in the dark, she DID open up to Woody and also more recently, to Jack who has urged her to tell Mick the truth.

The worried mum was hugely relieved when she was given the all clear at hospital but next week, she’s sent into a panic when some of her original symptoms start to re-emerge. She confides in Woody who once again insists Linda tell Mick what’s going on. Stubborn Linda refuses and instead tries to book an appointment at the hospital but when she’s told there’s a five week wait, she’s in bits.

Struggling to hide her fears, Mick is well aware something’s up with his wife and when he presses her to tell him what’s wrong, Linda finally cracks and spills out the truth.

Her hubby is totally stunned. How could she have kept something so massive from him and just to make matters worse, when he discovers that Woody has known for a long time, he feels doubly betrayed!

It’s not long before the accusations are flying as an incredulous Mick has a pop at Linda for shutting him out of her life. When he also finds out Jack knew, he starts to think he’s the only one in Walford who Linda HASN’T told. Can the couple patch things up? Will Mick soften and be supportive or is this latest wedge between the Carters going to get even deeper. We have to say, it’s not looking good for the landlord and the lovely L.
