EastEnders collapse for Mick as Linda goes missing at Christmas

EastEnders is certainly going to be keeping us on tenterhooks this festive period as new spoiler pictures show disaster is set to strike for the Carter family on Christmas Day. In upcoming scenes, Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter (played by Danny Dyer) collapses in his living room as the mounting pressure of Linda’s (Kellie Bright) drinking problem proves too much to bear.

The day gets off to a rough start and Linda’s drinking threatens to ruin the Carters special day.

However, always keen to keep tensions at bay, Mick desperately tries to hold things together, but he eventually buckles under the pressure and has another panic attack.

Pictures show Mick grabbing his chest before he passes out on the ground, with a shocked Shirley (Linda Henry) and Lee (Danny Boy Hatchard) looking on in horror.

As Mick lies in a heap on the floor, his son Lee puts him in the recovery position. Will the ambulance make it to Walford in time?

Spoilers have already revealed that Linda will have a spell in hospital as her alcoholism gets worst.

The character has been turning to alcohol as a method of coping with all of the stress she’s been under, which resulted in her getting arrested for driving under the influence — not to mention receiving a nine-month driving ban — but the festive season is set to see her reliance on booze spiral out of control.

Speaking about Linda’s battle with alcoholism, Kellie said: ‘The thing about Linda is that when she is drunk, you see a side to her you’ve not seen before and it’s very unpredictable, dark and dangerous. I think her drinking gets as bad as it could.’
