EastEnders spoilers for next week’s soap in all its meaty glory can be found above in the picture galley filled with images.
The people of Walford are attempting to get into the holiday mood now that December has arrived.
Making the Vic-sponsored Christmas concert a huge success, Elaine Peacock (Harriet Thorpe) is in her element. However, she quickly shifts her priorities, unable to resist stepping in when Yolande Trueman’s (Angela Wynter) attempt to recruit choir members fails.
It’s not all fun and games, though, as Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) finds it difficult to concentrate after learning what Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) and Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) did. As a consequence, his van collides with Harvey Monroe’s (Ross Boatman) cab, causing an accident.
Karen decides to pay Mitch when Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace), who is upset over the event, asks that he do so.
Nevertheless, Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) discovers that the cash contains his marked banknotes, and Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) helps him obtain evidence to support his belief that Keanu and Karen arranged Albie’s kidnapping!
With this knowledge in hand, Phil storms into the Vic intending to tell Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) the truth, but will he be successful?
Meanwhile, Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) goes on the charm offensive to win Denise Fox’s (Diane Parish) forgiveness after she returns home and is appalled to learn that Sam is living at their house.
However, there’s more drama when Denise discovers that Jack forgot to tell her that Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) has returned to town!
These scenes from EastEnders will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, December 4, and Thursday, December 7.
