LINDA Carter has watched her former husband Mick get ready to tie the knot with Janine Butcher.
But the Vic landlady portrayed by Kellie Bright is fuming when she finds out a familiar face will be making their return in EastEnders.
Zack Hudson (played by James Farrar) drops a bombshell on Linda in upcoming scenes of the long-running soap.
The hunk tells her that Jada Lennox has offered to bring her daughter Alyssa to her pal Sharon Watts for Christmas Day.
Linda is unhappy to hear about Jada, who schemed against her to get her to lose custody of baby Annie – while manipulated by Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks).
She has no choice but to be understanding when Zack then reminds her how much Sharon misses her granddaughter.

Given their bad blood, however, Linda decides to do what she can to make herself scarce once Jada arrives.
Viewers of the drama may remember that the 17-year-old fled Walford in August.
Jada (Kelsey Calladine-Smith) couldn't handle the pressure of Janine's bribery as the villain pushed her to report Linda to social services to have Annie taken away from her.
This was all a ploy to keep Linda away from Mick as Janine is terrified her partner may rekindle his romance with his former wife.

There's more ahead for Linda as Mick (departing actor Danny Dyer) and Janine are ready to walk down the aisle together next week.
But instead of stopping them when Mick's mother Shirley is (rightly) convinced Janine is up to no good, Linda encourages the tough woman to drop her vendetta and accept the marriage.
Yet Shirley doesn't take her advice and sets out on a mission to bring Janine down after overhearing a shocking conversation between Janine and her daughter Scarlett.
The latter knows all about Janine's involvement in Linda's horrific car crash but has been sworn to secrecy.
While she assured him she only wanted him to be happy, even if it meant giving up on getting him back, Linda offers Mick a final way out of his wedding to Janine in later scenes.
But will he actually take it?
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday.
