Max Branning (played by Jake Wood) will walk away from EastEnders next week after Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) makes it clear she doesn’t love him. The former pub landlady will be forced into being harsh with her ex-lover when Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) says he can’t forgive her if Max stays on the square. But when the love rat begins his journey out of Walford with baby Abi, will Linda have a change of heart? 

In upcoming scenes, Mick isn’t pleased when he sees Max approach Linda in the square.

He refuses to listen but she explains she will never leave her husband and doesn’t ever want to see him again. 

Max decides the only option left is for him to leave Walford for good and heads to the tube station with baby Abi.

Will Linda let Max leave alone or will she realise she owes him for everything he’s done to protect her family? 

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Jake explained why Max feels like he’s out of options. 

“It comes at that point when he absolutely realises that it’s not gonna work out with him and Linda and then he gets the offer to go to see Lauren in New Zealand so that must look like a more attractive proposition at the moment,” Jake revealed. 

“He’s living with Jack and he’s busy with his career and his new relationship. Jack’s asked him to move out and there’s not much left for in Walford if I’m honest. 

“Ian Beale’s gone missing owing him a ton of money, yes, it’s really gone all wrong for him,” he added. 

Discussing his character’s regrets, he added: “I think if you asked Max if he regretted any of his actions he probably would probably say no, he probably enjoyed every second of all his shenanigans. 

“I think part of the thing with Max is the excitement and running around. As soon as he had everything he wanted he was onto the next thing. 

“The excitement of the chase was always his thing. He should regret his actions because he’s ended up with not very much as a result, but probably if you asked him he wouldn’t admit to regretting anything.”

EastEnders continues on BBC One on Monday at 8.05pm.
