EastEnders has released its first Christmas pictures, which put the Carter family at the forefront.
Queen Vic landlord Mick (Danny Dyer), Linda (Kellie Bright), Nancy (Maddy Hill) and Lee (Danny-Boy Hatchard) feature among the festive gifts, with bulldog Lady Di also getting his own separate image.
Secrets are currently swirling at the Walford boozer with Mick completely unaware that Linda has been raped by Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo), the man he believes to be his nephew but who is really his brother.
But in the run-up to Christmas, Linda looks set to reveal what has happened to her to Dean’s current girlfriend Stacey (Lacey Turner).
The show’s executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has already confirmed that Mick will also discover that Linda was raped, hinting that secrets would be spilled at Christmas:
“Mick will find out. We keep referring to Mick’s temper. And, let’s not forget, Dean has raped Danny Dyer’s screen wife! But what will happen when Mick finds out? That’s what we want the audience to wait for. And we’re rumbling towards Christmas,” he said recently.
