Mick Carter (played by Danny Dyer) and Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) once ran the Queen Vic together in harmony. However, in recent years they gave up the pub when Linda began abusing alcohol and Mick later moved back when he partnered up with Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks). With Janine having left Albert Square and Mick missing, EastEnders are keen to work out who will take control of the pub
BBC viewers are convinced a heartbroken Linda will move on with Alfie Moon (Shane Richie), who has previously owned the Queen Vic.
The pair have both worked in the pub and have called it home so isn’t unlikely they could team up.
Linda was devastated when Mick married Janine while Alfie has been heartbroken over Kat Slater’s (Jessie Wallace) romance with Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).
EastEnders fans think this clears the way for Linda and Alfie to fall for one another.

Taking to Twitter to speculate on the potential storyline, Dyana posted: “I just caught up with #EastEnders and my heart is breaking for Alfie.
“I adore Kat but she will regret her decision. Could Linda be the woman to mend Alfie’s heart?”
“#EastEnders Now that Kat has decided to stay loyal to Phil I wonder if my original theory could come true?” tweeted Ryan Glendenning.
“Could Alfie and Linda sleep together and run the bar together? We know Alfie sneaks into the pub in a few weeks. Could this lead to Linda’s return?”
“Knowing #EastEnders, Mick will return on their wedding day or something.”
Last week on EastEnders, it was revealed Kat had chosen to stand by Phil’s side after her kidnap horror.
Kat had shot DCI Keeble, who kidnapped both her and Tommy Moon, and the officer agreed to drop her vendetta against the Mitchells if they took her to hospital.
Alfie tried to convince Kat to leave Phil and Walford but she refused.
