EastEnders has released a mini teaser hinting that tragedy lies in store for the residents of Walford following an upcoming gas explosion.


Earlier this week, it was revealed that one soap regular won’t be making it through the week alive in the aftermath of the disaster.

Now, the new teaser – released on the show’s social media channels – promises a 24 hours in Walford life that will ‘shatter the Square’.

So, who might be in life for the chop? As has already been reported, actor Aaron Sidwell is set to leave EastEnders – so might Steven be meeting his maker? Plus speculation has been rife that Max Branning’s long-running revenge plan could finally be exposed.

24 hours that will shatter Walford to the core, but who will be left to pick up the pieces?BBC EastEnders, from Monday 4th September on BBC One.

Speaking about this latest set-piece drama – which is set to kick off in the midst of the Walford in Bloom competition – a source told The Sun:

“It’s a bold stunt and has taken months of planning. It’ll trigger a load of other storylines off the back of it, but the explosion itself will be a major talking point.

“Viewers will be left wondering whether it was set off on purpose or by accident, and bosses are staying tight-lipped about who will die but at least one is looking like they will.”
