EastEnders: Fatboy and Poppy Christmas Red Button special – picture preview

Will the course of true love run smooth for the Walford couple?


Details of an upcoming EastEnders Red Button episode featuring Fatboy (Ricky Norwood) and Poppy (Rachel Bright) have been announced by the BBC.


Entitled All I Want for Christmas, the 15-minute special, written by Carey Andrews, will follow on from a story strand in the main soap that sees Poppy opting to be with Fats over the festive season rather than her family. But not everyone is smiling: poor Alice (Jasmyn Banks) looks set to have the worst Christmas ever. The plot synopsis for the episode reads as follows:

“Fatboy is thrilled when Poppy returns for Christmas but not all goes to plan. Unless he takes charge, Fatboy may lose the best Christmas gift he has ever had.”


Fans can see Fats’s trials and tribulations on Thursday 27 December at 9pm.
