LINDA Carter finds herself tempted by Max Branning and booze next week in EastEnders as she heads on a downward spiral.
Linda and Max shared a passionate kiss on the pub balcony last month after he caught her turning back to alcohol.

Things then heated up between the pair after Linda accepted Max’s job offer at the restaurant.
Linda’s husband Mick, meanwhile, is embroiled in a horrifying child sexual abuse storyline after it was revealed he’d fathered his estranged daughter Frankie when he was just 12.
Next week’s episodes of EastEnders will see Linda confide in Max about her new business idea.

Spotting an opportunity, Max later persuades Bobby to expand the age restriction on the Lucy Beale grant.
Watching Linda’s reaction to the news, Sharon grows suspicious and tells Max to leave her alone.
Later in the week, Sharon warns Linda not to be sucked in by Max, but she insists he’s just a friend.

Later, Max takes Abi to Linda’s to assist with her business idea.
Keeping Sharon’s comments in mind, Linda tries to be guarded but can’t help flirting with Max.
Later, Linda notices Ruby watching her and tells her she isn’t drinking.
But when Ruby makes some harsh comments, Linda can’t help herself and steals a bottle before legging it.
Luckily, she stops herself from drinking it and calls Mick.
Will he come to her rescue?
EastEnders fans are convinced that Linda and Max are going to strike up an affair behind poor Mick’s back after the soap confirmed that two characters will be having an affair in the coming months despite sex scenes being scrapped due to social distancing rules.
With Mick preoccupied with Frankie and Katy, might Linda turn to Max and destroy her marriage once and for all?
