Mick then tells a gutted Nancy that tonight will be just family, though she can be Landlady of The Vic tomorrow.

Mick tells a delighted Nancy that she can be landlady of the Queen Vic for a day for her 21st.However, ignoring Linda’s wishes for the night to be family only, Nancy calls over some friends and Linda is left anxious over whether Dean will make an appearance.

There’s further tension for the Carters when Lee overhears Dexter chatting about Linda’s page-three modelling days and immediately sees red.

Mick and Stan then step in to help calm the situation down by bringing in a birthday cake with flowers.

The cake brings back terrible memories for Linda, however, and she finally snaps – screaming at them all to get out…
