EastEnders fans were stunned tonight by Linda Carter’s shock confession about sleeping with Stuart Highway.
Mick Carter demanded answers from his wife after revealing that the worst part of being in prison was thinking she wasn’t by his side.
Linda claimed she had no choice and tried to explain why she let evil Stuart into their home – and even their bedroom.
The landlady said: "I had to make them all believe it. I had to make him believe it. So I let him touch me, kiss me. I did it for you Mick."
Disgusted Mick then asked if she had slept with Stuart – and did not get the answer he expected.

Close to tears, Linda said: "No – but I would have done."
Explaining why, she added: "Because I would do anything for you Mick."
After emotional Linda stormed out of the bedroom, she asked her husband if she had made the wrong decision.

The Queen Vic landlord replied: "It repulses me but I understand why you did it. I understand why you did it because I’m here with you and Ollie – and that’s what counts.
"You’ve always hated Stuart and everything you went through with Dean. I cant imagine."
Mick thanked Linda for her sacrifice and they finally put the situation to bed.
