Sharon and Alfie come to support Linda and convince her to attend the gym opening. While there, Linda and Alfie bond over their history with boxing, before Linda gets an update on Janine.
Meanwhile, Sam and Alfie share a drink at The Vic as they talk about their failed love lives, and getting increasingly tipsy, they crack a joke about his relationship with Linda, unaware that she is listening in.
Linda is left upset, and decides to confront Alfie. What will she say?

While fans have suggested there is potential for romance between Linda and Alfie, star Shane Richie has downplayed the idea.
"I don't think there's anything there other than Alfie hates to see someone hurting, and when he sees what happened with Mick and Linda, he just sees someone who's hurting, and he wants to be a shoulder to cry on," he told Digital Spy and other media.
"Now how people read into that is up to them, but, at the moment, Alfie has no feelings for Linda whatsoever."
EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
