EastEnders spoilers follow.
EastEnders has revealed a huge baby twist in Janine Butcher’s story.
Mick and Janine became an item earlier this year, but viewers know that there’s still unfinished business between Mick and his estranged wife Linda.
Upcoming episodes will see Janine discover she’s pregnant with Mick’s baby, just as Linda decides to fight for a reunion with her ex.
Janine surprises Mick with a day trip, but it clashes with the day of Linda’s meeting with her brief.
Realising she would benefit from Linda doing well in court, Janine suggests Mick goes, hiding the fact that she’s feeling slightly unwell.
As Linda’s hopes are dashed in court, Janine is still feeling sick back at home, and is convinced she has the same bug as her daughter Scarlett.
While tending to Scarlett, Janine faints. At the hospital, Sonia and Janine are left shellshocked when the doctor reveals that Janine is pregnant.
As Janine reels from the news, Sonia encourages her to tell Mick as soon as possible.
Unaware of what’s going on with Janine, Mick assures Linda that he still cares about her and will help her fight to get Annie back.
While Sonia urges Janine to tell Mick about the pregnancy later in the week, Linda struggles with her feelings for him.
Touched after learning how much Mick paid for her new lawyer, Linda opens up to Sharon and explains that she’s still in love with him.
Linda decides to profess her love for Mick later in The Vic, but with Janine’s news hanging over them, will she get a chance?
EastEnders airs on Mondays – Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
