Viewers have been watching closely for clues ever since February, when EastEnders aired a gripping flash-forward which saw the dead body of a mystery male character wearing the prominent piece of jewellery on his suit sleeve.
Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) was dressed as a bride, joined by Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Denise Fox (Diane Parish), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) and Kathy Cotton (Gillian Taylforth).
Those cufflinks have been making regular appearances, with husband of Suki, Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) offering them up in a poker game, where they were won by Denise's other half, Jack Branning (Scott Maslen).
Jack later passed the cufflinks on to Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) in a surprisingly amicable scene ahead of Phil's wedding to Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace).

In an interview with Inside Soap, Clenshaw was asked for some new hints about the plot everyone's talking about. "You're going to be guessing right up until the very last moment," he reveals.
"As we build through the autumn, stories come into play for each of The Six, building toward a big crescendo. And, while Phil currently has the cufflinks, keep your eyes peeled as they may not be the only pair come Christmas..."
It's a huge teaser, throwing our theories up in the air as we wonder just what this means going forward. If there is more than one pair of those amber cufflinks, then perhaps several Walford men may be wearing a pair on the big day?
Given Clenshaw promises that we'll be kept guessing throughout the Christmas episode, can we expect somebody connected with each of The Six to be seen wearing the cufflinks - and, potentially, other male characters who we wouldn't necessarily link to the group?
