Expect fire, wedding bells and the return of two members of the Mitchell family as EastEnders gears up for an explosive autumn.


In a new trailer just released by the BBC, fans can get a glimpse of Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) turning to arson in a bid to solve his financial problems, a comeback for Ben Mitchell (now played by newcomer Harry Reid), plus Phil’s (Steve McFadden) new alliance with old flame Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) and the reappearance of Ronnie (Samantha Womack).

“Bombs that we have been carefully planting over the last few months are about to explode all over the Square as some of our most iconic characters’ lives change forever,” says executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins. “With huge twists, shock returns and stories which will move, provoke and entertain, this September is going to be classic EastEnders and an unforgettable start to our autumn.”
