Business venture

EastEnders confirms new business venture for Linda Carter

EastEnders spoilers follow.

Linda Carter is set to invest in a new business venture on EastEnders after rejecting Janine Butcher’s bribe.

Recent scenes saw Janine offer Linda £50,000 to leave Walford, and as she seriously considered the bribe she ended up returning the knife to Janine – telling her she was going nowhere and kept the money for herself.

In new scenes airing next week, Denise Fox reveals to Lola Pearce and Jada Lennox that she is considering selling the salon to Nathan, who has shown interest. Kim is disappointed with her reasons for selling him, while Sam Mitchell is happy with the decision.

However, Linda overhears Kim and Denise discussing the need for an investor while considering a drink, and at Ruby’s she approaches them, offering them an investment.

The two ponder the decision and Denise accepts Linda’s proposal, and are shocked to see her offering £50,000 by the end of the day.

Jack is suspicious of Linda’s investment, but after a conversation everyone is happy and Linda signs the contract, making her a co-owner. Jack and Denise also deliver the news to Sam.

Linda celebrates the investment with her family and Janine, though Nancy gets a call, learning that the real estate agents never received the money.

Speaking of Linda’s decision, star Kellie Bright explained, “She happens to be in the neighborhood of Kim and Denise talking about needing an investor. She’s putting herself forward, not necessarily because knows about hair salons – everyone would have donut hair!”

“But she knows business, she’ll be more administrative, she can do VAT, knows business rates… It’s very spontaneous, almost like Janine’s money is burning a hole in her pocket and that she had to do something about it.

“It’s better than giving up. Sounds pretty sensible and enterprising of him.”

Kellie added that whether they trust her or not, Denise and Kim are “desperate”, revealing: “It’s better than not having an investor at all and losing the salon. So they accept the offer.

“When Linda makes the offer, she’s very sober and straightforward, asking for nothing to change or steamroll in there, to work there, just an infusion of cash. At that point, Linda has been sober for a few weeks. She goes to her meetings. .

“One of the reasons she wants to do something with the money is that she knows she has to keep busy, focus on not being tempted to drink anymore. Which is positive for the way his healing takes place at this point.”

EastEnders airs these scenes on Tuesday May 31 and Wednesday June 1 on BBC One.
