EastEnders has confirmed that a major character will be killed off during the anniversary week, with Danny Dyer (Mick Carter) telling RadioTimes.com that the person who perishes was “a real shock” to cast and crew.

“It’s really powerful stuff, and we’re trying to get a message across, and sometimes when you do that, you’ve really got to go full throttle with it.”

Speaking previously about the surprise death, Ben Mitchell actor Max Bowden said: “It could be any of us! The great thing about the 35th is that literally everybody in EastEnders is involved.

“So many stories interlink, our producers Kate Oates and Jon Sen have done that really well and brought everything together to make a real pinnacle moment.”

The EastEnders anniversary week kicks off on Monday 17th February on BBC One.
