ALBERT Square residents are in a celebratory mood for King Charles III's coronation.
However, Linda Carter struggles to join in as she receives massive news about Mick next week in EastEnders.
Many have tried to cheer Linda up months after her husband Mick Carter vanished at sea while trying to save her and rival Janine Butcher from drowning.
But the thought of losing the love of her life has been weighing heavy on the landlady's mind and while she continues to try and move on next week, she receives shocking news which makes her sink even further.
Coming up on BBC One, Coronation Day dawns in Walford and everyone excitedly prepares for the big celebrations.
As the Square gets ready, Linda (played by Kellie Bright) and Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) ensure The Vic is well and ready.

Sadly, Linda's mood is dampened when she receives Mick's "Presumption of Death" certificate.
Linda breaks down in tears but there's more trouble in store her.
Viewers will remember that Linda was devastated when she was told Janine was putting up her share of the iconic pub for sale – but her pal Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) was there to pick up the pieces.
Sharon suggested she became the new owner of the Vic to keep Linda and her family off the streets.

This was until Linda was faced with the businesswoman's rigid ways and a counter-offer from Suki and Nish Panesar (Balvinder Sopal and Navin Chowdhry).
The landlady wasn't fully convinced by either buyer and, soon enough, soap fans caught her calling a mystery individual.
With all three buyers unaware of the situation next week, Linda struggles to be honest with Sharon about her plans for The Vic while the Panesars continue to operate as though the deal is done.
Suki tells Nish there are no more obstacles to them sealing The Vic deal unaware that Linda is on the phone with a mystery caller as she explains she's only keeping the Panesars on the hook until they've got the cash sorted.
In later scenes, Linda lets Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) know she's been lying to Sharon and Nish in case her buyer doesn't come through.
The Panesars, ready to extend their empire, then sweep in with their associates to show off their new acquisition but Linda bursts their bubble by explaining she's pulling out of the deal.
Suki is fuming but Nish remains surprisingly quiet, simply stating it's just business.
