EastEnders: new Christmas Day mystery – revealed!

Who is sending gifts to the Albert Square regulars?


EastEnders looks set to launch a new whodunnit over the festive season – but, on this occasion, nobody is being bumped off!


The Christmas Day episode of the BBC1 soap will see residents in the Square receiving suspicious gifts from a mystery sender – but who is responsible?

As can be seen from the image below, Walford returnee Max is looking somewhat smug about the gift he’s holding. Is he perhaps playing Santa Claus following his comeback to the Square?


Or could the EastEnders writers be about to throw us a curveball? Phil has been looking like an ailing Father Christmas of late – is he the mystery benefactor?

And let’s not forget young Ricky, who recently left a box of food on Dot’s doorstep – is he trying to give his neighbours a Christmas to remember?

You can watch a 60-second rundown of Christmas on EastEnders below.
