Spoilers: Linda sells the Queen Vic to Phil in EastEnders as he sponsor her?

Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) berated Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) in EastEnders, as she accused him of not being able to do what’s necessary in order to win back Sharon Watts’ (Letitia Dean) affection, but — as they discussed the daily struggles that come with being an alcoholic — the Queen Vic landlady agreed to sell the Mitchell hard-man her beloved pub on the condition that he be her sponsor. Will he agree?

Linda was fuming during the previous episode when she learned that Phil had suggested that she wasn’t ready to open up during the alcoholic support group, and therefore she wasted little time in confronting him on the matter.

In tonight’s instalment, Phil spoke to her candidly on the struggles that come with being an alcoholic, and Linda listened — determined to not let the booze get the better of her.

Afterwards, she offered to give the kitchen a clean — as cleaning keeps her mind off the drink — but as she did so, she discovered an unopened bottle of alcohol, and berated Phil.

She poured him a glass and suggested that he give it a sniff — reminding him of the hold alcohol can have on oneself, and used this fact to question how he could even dream of being behind the bar if he’s an alcoholic.

His lack of answer spoke volumes, as Linda came to realise he wanted the pub for Sharon.

Conflict ensued between the pair, but — later — Linda apologised for her harsh words.

Knowing that The Vic means a lot to Sharon, Linda ultimately agreed to sell it to Phil on the condition that he be her sponsor.


Will he agree?

What’s more, will Linda really part with her beloved pub?

EastEnders continues Tuesday 5 May at 7:30pm on BBC One.
