The Queen Vic landlady – who is played by actress Kellie Bright in the BBC soap – was raped by brother in law Dean in 2014 in a harrowing storyline.

Viewers watched this week as Dean went to attack Linda again at the Vic – but he was stopped when George Knight stepped in.

When Dean went too far, George hit him and knocked him down the stairs.

Dean was rushed to hospital but soon turned the tables, telling Linda that he would put George in prison unless Linda confesses to him that she lied about him raping her.

Linda’s family convinced her to take the offer – leaving her with no choice but to lie to Dean about the hell he put her through.

With no other option, Linda went to Dean, shaking.

She told him that she was doing it for her family, and agreed to tell him that he didn’t rape her.

But Dean tricked her – and recorded her as she said: “I wanted you. Is that what you wanted me to say?

“We had sex. And I lied. I came onto you. I wanted to sleep with you so I did. And afterwards I was scared about what Mick was going to say so I said you raped me. I lied.”

“Wow,” said Dean. “Thank you. You have no idea how good it is to hear you saying that. Linda, really, thank you.”

As Linda left, a broken shell of a woman, Dean replayed the recording to himself.

But fans are disgusted and have accused the soap of going too far with the storyline.

One wrote: “Linda in an impossible situation. Dean deserves everything that is coming to him. Forcing Linda to lie about her ordeal.”

A second said: “The direction EastEnders has taken with the Dean storyline.”

Another added: “F***ing disgusting storyline…end this s**t..”
