JANINE Butcher has been trying to keep Linda Carter at bay and away from her flame Mick Carter.
But, next week in EastEnders, the pub landlady could have the last laugh as her former husband comes back from a trip.
However, it appears that her attempts at keeping both spouses away from one another may be in vain.
Coming up, Linda makes karaoke plans for the Vic but Janine thwarts them.
When Mick (Danny Dyer) comes back from his trip, Janine realises she made a mistake as he clearly wants the entertainment in his pub.
As viewers may know, Mick left Albert Square to visit Zsa Zsa with Shirley Carter, months after Tina’s funeral, leaving Janine alone with Linda.
Upon her other half’s return, Janine backtracks and brings the karaoke night back.
Unfortunately for her, Mick pays her no attention and she’s left seething when he joins Linda for some karaoke.
As mentioned above, Janine went to great lengths to drive a wedge between Mick and Linda.

In recent months, Linda and Janine even got into a car crash but the latter fled the scene just in time to make it look like her rival had been drinking and driving.
This made many of her close relatives to turn their backs on them, believing she wasn’t reliable or trustworthy enough to get the help she truly needs for her alcohol addiction.
Both Danny and Kellie Bright have been seen filming scenes outside a hotel, looking friendly, hinting their on-screen alter egos may rekindle their romance or, at the very least, have a heartfelt conversation.
And as Danny Dyer prepares himself for an emotional exit after announcing his departure from the show in January, 2022, could the former lovebirds get closure or give themselves another chance?
