Linda tries to console her son and promises that she’ll stop drinking.

In turn, Johnny assures Linda that he will help her get sober – but it's clear that this could be more challenging than he anticipated.

Later in the week, Johnny finds himself having a tense conversation with Chelsea, after Denise goes missing.

Linda also becomes rattled by Chelsea’s questions and struggles to hide it.

Because of this, Suki begins to fear that The Six's big secret is going to fall apart, and becomes determined to find a way out of it.

Suki insists to Stacey that the women need to rally around Denise and look after her in shifts if that’s what it takes to protect their secret. But what does Johnny know, and what will this mean for them?

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer, where most episodes drop early at 6am ahead of their TV broadcast.
