EastEnders spoiler sees Janine attempt to keep secret after Linda car crash twist

EastEnders is set for explosive scenes as Janine Butcher attempts to cover the truth about her car crash after she moved Linda Carter to make it look like she was driving in shock scenes.

Only recently, the pair were involved in a horror car crash with Janine smashing into a tree after she lost control of the car after avoiding an oncoming lorry due to the duo arguing over their love interest Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer.

While on Tuesday's explosive episode, Janine, played by Charlie Brooks, moved a drunk Linda, played by Kellie Bright, to make it look like she was driving, which eagle-eyed fans had already predicted.

And now the hit BBC One soap has released new spoiler photos showing the moment Janine attempts to keep her secret safe, especially in front of Mick.

The scenes, which will air on Wednesday 8 June, see Mick horrified to learn the extent of Linda’s injuries and realises just how serious this is whileJanine remains by his side.

Janine’s nerves hang by a thread and as Mick questions how Linda could drink and drive, Janine does her best to cover the truth that she was the one who was driving.

As Mick reels from the update on Linda, Janine wonders if she can keep her secret safe…

Teasing the upcoming scenes, Janine actress Charlie, 41, said of why her character moved Linda: "Panic. I think it’s panic, I think when she moves Linda, she’s doing whatever she can to not look guilty in this situation.

"This is when Janine is at her worst because she doesn’t think things through…. Or does she? **laughs**. It’s her natural instinct to save herself, she is ultimately the most self-centred person you can ever wish to meet.

"I do think there are elements of guilt for Janine, I don’t think she’s just cold hearted, I do think she has moments of reflection and guilt but the feeling of panic and desperation overrides that and she just wants to save herself."

Asked whether she thinks Janine can get away with it, Charlie joked: "Well, she has got away with quite a lot in the past. I think she is absolutely believing that she can get away with it."

Talking about whether Janine wants Linda dead, the actress said: "I think if Linda died, it would make Janine’s life easier. But I don’t think Janine wants her dead or wants to kill her, I think that is an entirely different thing.

"She is a lost girl that does underneath it all ultimately feel like she is doing it for the right reasons but just always makes the biggest mistakes."

Talking about what her character wants from Mick, she said: "Janine wants Mick all to herself, she wants a family unit, she doesn’t want any distractions.

"When she is in that and feels safe, we see Janine being okay, but it’s the moment she is threatened and might not get what she wants – she’s a little girl that’s never grown up.

"If she doesn’t get her own way, then she will do anything within her power to get what she wants. Because of her father’s neglect, she seeks comfort and craves intimacy which as we know is complicated with Mick.

"There is a whole mash-up of confused emotions, and I think it all stems from her fear of abandonment. I don’t think she is a rebel without cause."
