EastEnders

About this programme

Christmas Day dawns in Walford, but there's little festive cheer for the residents of Albert Square. Janine arrives at the Butchers' under the pretence of spending time with the family, while actually searching for the recording that implicates her in Michael's murder, and Bianca is put out when Nikki arrives and proceeds to wind her up about her relationship with ex-husband Terry. Things seem to be going better for Carol and David, when she makes a confession to her ex - but their new-found closeness looks likely to end when he answers a mysterious text. Over at Phil's house, it's clear neither the Beales nor the Mitchells want to play happy families - so when Lola announces that she and Peter are now a couple, it doesn't go down too well. Alfie is also taken aback when a stranger helps himself to a pint in the Vic but it's explained to him as a misunderstanding. Danny Dyer joins the cast as new Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter.
