After last week’s dramatic twists and turns, it’s hard to imagine things can get even more dramatic in the build-up to Christmas. But this is Eastenders we’re talking about, so it definitely can!

First up, we’ve got Alife, who’s determined to get the whole family together for Christmas dinner. But will he be able to save face with a massive secret hanging over his head? And in true Eastenders’ style, his plans start to unravel when Hayley spills the beans, causing chaos, before a shock twist changes the family dynamic forever. In a teaser clip, we see Jean say “He’s not the man I thought he was.” Oohhh!
Albert Square favourite, Mick has been released from prison, just in time for Christmas! But this time, he’s out for bloody revenge. Linda fears that her husband has got blood on his hands after spotting a suspicious moment between Mick and Phil. Has he gotten his revenge by killing Stuart’s former best friend?
