The BBC has been forced to take action after several upcoming episodes of EastEnders were leaked online.
All four episodes of this week’s soap – which featured the return of Martin Fowler (James Bye) – surfaced on the web over the weekend.
The episodes have now been removed, but many soap fans roaming social media may have stumbled on key storyline twists (just in case the normal spoilers and preview pictures weren’t enough).
A spokesperson for EastEnders told RadioTimes.com: “As soon as we became aware of the unauthorised publication, we took immediate action to remove them. We are investigating to prevent this happening again.”
Official spoilers for the coming week include the aftermath of Bex Fowler’s (Jasmine Armfield) suicide attempt and Martin Fowler’s aforementioned return to Albert Square – a comeback which will spark a feud with Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden).
New episodes will also see further screentime for the Panesar family – brothers Jags, Kheerat and Vinny – who recently arrived on the show.
