EastEnders has unveiled its first look at this year’s Christmas episodes, and for once, it looks like it’s going to be a cheerful Christmas in Walford. Nah, just kidding!

Front and center during these episodes will be the Slaters, especially once Kat (Jessie Wallace) finally learns the truth about Alfie (Shane Richie) and Hayley’s (Katie Jarvis) baby secret.

It’s safe to say Kat doesn’t take the news well, since she’s seen smashing up Alfie’s car and warning him: “I will do time for you!”

With fans also predicting another disaster looming for the family over the festive period, Shane Richie has promised that there will definitely be “a big shock on Christmas Day”.

“Obviously I can’t tell you what it is, but even when I read it, I went: ‘Oh, you can’t do that, you can’t do that, we’ve tipped it over the edge now’,” he teased.

“And it’ll be interesting because I’m doing panto on Boxing Day, so I’m sitting there thinking: ‘I can put that gag in.”

The Carters are in for an eventful Christmas too, when Mick (Danny Dyer) is finally freed from prison thanks to Linda (Kellie Bright) finally getting that confession from Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ).

But will the family ever truly be able to move on from the strain that the shooting, Mick’s incarceration and Linda’s plot have put on them?

If that’s not enough tension to make Albert Square explode, the show has lined up the return of Hannah Spearritt as Karen Taylor’s troublemaking sister Kandice for Christmas too!

EastEnders continues on Monday (December 17) at 8pm on BBC One.
