After a spectacular night for the BBC One soap at the National Television Awards, EastEnders story editor Lawrie Jordan teased viewers with what’s coming for Christmas.
EastEnders won three awards during the event, which was broadcast last night, September 5.
Following the plot in which Danielle Harold’s character, Lola Pearce, passed away after being told she had a brain tumor, she received the Serial Drama Performance award.
In other categories, EastEnders won Best Serial Drama, while Bobby Brazier was recognized as a Rising Star.
This was an amazing evening for the soap after a challenging few years, and things appear to grow much better for them as the holiday season draws nearer.
Story editor Lawrie Jordan tweeted in response to the prize news: “Three gongs!! So happy for our incredibly talented and committed staff. In order to provide you the finest possible version of this show, people are working day and night. We appreciate each and every one of your votes.keep an eye on things.Christmas in 2023 promises to be spectacular.
Following the February airing of a flash-forward episode, Lawrie makes a reference to Christmas.
The climactic scenes revealed that The Six—Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Denise Fox (Diane Parish), and Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean)—will all be present when a dead body is discovered in the Queen Vic on Christmas Day.
Before Friday night’s NTAs, photographs of the stars on the red carpet donning their distinctive The Six colors caused a social media uproar among fans.
Some of the male celebrities were seen sporting cufflinks, a piece of jewelry that is often found on the body in the bar at Christmas, which only served to spark further conversation.
