EastEnders turns 36 today!

EastEnders fans are convinced Max Branning will be murdered in tonight’s episode (Friday, February 19) after his fight with Mick Carter.

However when Mick told Linda that the reason for his behaviour was because he had been sexually abused as a child by Katy Lewis, who recently came back into his life, she ended things with Max.

Over the last few weeks, Max has been trying to win back Linda, but she’s made it clear she doesn’t love him.

In last night’s episode, Mick walked into The Vic and warned Max to keep away from Linda.
