Linda Carter (played by Kellie Bright) was not impressed when she returned home in EastEnders to find Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) behind the bar in The Vic serving a bustling crowd of Walford punters. After realising the former pub landlord was just trying to help, she agreed to give him a job before revealing she was selling the iconic pub. 

After throwing everyone out of The Vic, Linda confided in Alfie.

She said: “Mick would have enjoyed it, he I loved a bit of karaoke.”

“I guess I overreacted,” she continued but Alfie interrupted: “No, Linda you’re grieving. I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now. I know we’re not together but if Kat…”

“But you know what? Walford needs her ladyship back behind the bar looking all pink and classy.”

“I mean, this is where everybody comes,” he said. “This is home from home.

“It’s not only me you matter to but everyone else that was in here earlier and more besides.

“You know what I think? I think it works both ways. I think you need them too.

Linda replied: “I’m glad you’re settled at the Slaters and I can’t deny you do not bring in a crowd.

“You can keep working for the next couple of weeks because you’re right I do need somewhere that’s home but it can’t be here.

“Seeing what you did today made me realise I couldn’t have done that. Not now, not without Mick.

“It all just reminds me of him. It’s time to sell The Vic.”

EastEnders fans waisted no time in figuring out who could buy the iconic landmark.

The Panesars have been busy building a business empire and it seems The Vic could be their next target.

@BovaryCee tweeted: “I would love to see the #Panesars buy the Vic. Alfie doesn’t have any money and still owes Phil 29,000£ I could also see someone new coming into the Vic. #EastEnders.”

@jxs606 agreed: “100% the Panesars are going to try and buy the vic! #EastEnders.” (sic)

“Now that Linda is selling the pub I think it’ll either go to the Slater’s or to the Panesars. #EastEnders,” @RyanTheSoapking wrote. 

@realseanslater added: “No ones got any money so itll either be the panesars behind the bar, possibly fox-trueman-brannings OR a return, or phil but i doubt it #EastEnders.” (sic)

However, some fans suggested a few old favourite owners may return to the pub.

@janinessharon demanded: “We want Sharon & Linda to run the vic !!! #eastenders.”

“I wonder if Linda will sell the Vic to Kat and Alfie?  #EastEnders,” @CFCJaack suggested.

EastEnders airs on BBC One from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm.
