Here's the biggest moments of the week ahead, with more drama to come on the BBC soap...

Linda Carter is given some big news (BBC)

Linda's prison discovery

Linda Carter is given some big news next week, as she continues to mourn the tragic loss of her ex-husband Mick Carter.

Mick was seemingly killed off after a showdown with new wife Janine Butcher, with him currently presumed drowned and lost at sea.

Janine was arrested for covering up a crime she committed last year after pinning it on Linda, as she finally faced justice after months of destroying love rival Linda's life.

The Carters finally found out in December that she had caused the crash that almost killed Linda and her young daughter Annie, with Janine making it seem as though she had driven while under the influence of alcohol.

Janine has been in prison ever since her Boxing Day arrest, while Linda is struggling to adapt to a life without Mick who is believed to be dead.

Last month on the BBC soap, Linda learned that Janine has pleaded guilty in court over her charges and in upcoming scenes there's another update.

Linda is soon left shaken by Janine's prison sentence as she is consumed by her loss, but what is the verdict?

Keanu fights for his life

Keanu will be left fighting for his life after being attacked on EastEnders next week.

As the christening for Albie arrives, Keanu's mind is elsewhere as Ravi reminds him that if he helps with the delivery, there is some good money in store for him. He isn't sure what to do, but when he sees the flash present that Martin and Zack bought for Albie, he seems to have made his decision and heads off to meet Ravi.

Ravi tells him what to expect, and that he'll be transporting the drugs to their next location in white goods. He completes the job, but delays mean he takes much longer than expected and is late to the christening.

Parking outside the church, he rushes in but half way through the christening, the sound of the van alarm going off sends him heading outside to check everything is ok. Sharon rushes behind him, before they both come face to face with the police.

The police are stood by the van waiting for Keanu, as they arrest him for intent to supply.

Keanu is taken to the police station, whilst Karen demands that Sharon does something to help. Karen insists her son would never do anything with drugs, whilst Sharon steps in to call a solicitor for some help.

Keanu calls Sharon to insist it isn't what it seems, whilst Ravi is worried that he will reveal all about the wider plan. DS Barnes tells Keanu he can get out of this, if he's happy to rat on those higher up in the chain.

Later, when he arrives back at the pub, Ravi is worried and quizzes Keanu if he told he police. Whilst Keanu swears that he didn't say anything, Ravi later finds him and takes his revenge.

While there are no details on what happens next, Keanu is left fighting for his life after a brutal attack. Phil finds himself and calls an ambulance - but will he make it?

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
