EastEnders was full of drama on Monday as Linda Carter gave birth to a baby girl with Jack Branning having to help her.

During the episode, Albert Square was rocked by an explosive fire at the Mitchell household as Tommy Moon's life seems to hang in the balance after he was rescued from the terrifying blaze.

Elsewhere in Walford, Linda, who was safe over at the Queen Vic, went into labour after Jack demanded to know whether his brother Max Branning was the father — to which she confessed that he is.

But with everyone distracted by the fire, including her husband Mick Carter, Jack was forced to play midwife as he helped deliver her baby as he received medical advice over the phone.

Linda confessed that he was the baby's uncle as she started to worry that Max, who left earlier this year, could return to Albert Square and "ruin everything".

But Jack insisted that Max wouldn't be returning as he didn't call him and that he just needed to know the truth about her baby's father.

Later during the episode, Linda welcomed a baby girl as her husband Mick, who knows everything, finally returned home as he gushed over the newborn.

He said: "She's beautiful, I'm so sorry I weren't here. Have you ever seen anything so amazing?"

As Mick held the newborn, he told Linda: "I love you" as Jack looked on, appearing to be conflicted about whether to tell his brother Max or let the family be happy.

EastEnders fans were left in tears over the scenes as they took to Twitter to gush over Linda and Mick, as well as share their excitement for the baby's name.

One person said: "I want to know what Mick and Linda will call the baby #EastEnders."

A different account put: "I am sobbing. i love mick and linda so much #EastEnders."

Another follower commented: "OMG LINDA’S HAD A GIRL #EastEnders."
