Where have you seen EastEnders’ Hayley Slater before?

Everything you need to know about Katie Jarvis

Hayley Slater has sure as hell made her presence back on the Square felt, with poor Linda Carter catching her in bed with Mick… all very innocent on his part of course!

Linda kicked the Slater lass out on her ear – but Mick had been set up.

His so-called friend Stuart Highway was behind the prank to get Linda all fired up, and it worked.
