EastEnders: Max to be grilled by the Brannings in special episode written by Simon Ashdown

Tension is rising in this evening's visit to Walford

EastEnders - October-December 2017 - 5611

Max will face the wrath of his family tonight in a special episode of EastEnders penned by Simon Ashdown, the writer who helped create the Branning clan.


Viewers have already seen Max left reeling after discovering that he’d been double crossed by both James Willmott-Brown and Fi Browning.

Now, as Max struggles to hold it together, those closest to him start to become increasingly concerned about his behaviour.
