All eyes are on what will happen to the residents of Walford over the EastEnders Christmas period.


Earlier in the year it was revealed that one character would die and there would be six women in the frame for the mystery man's murder.

Now that Cindy (Michelle Collins) and Ian (Adam Woodyatt) are back on EastEnders, will they be tied up with the drama?

Speaking at a recent press event to press including, Executive Producer, Chris Clenshaw, hinted that there could be a huge festive season on the cards for the newly-reinstated Beales.

He said: "You know, it’s the Beales and Cindy’s first Christmas back in Walford.

"It will be a big Christmas in the Beales’s house."

Will they get wrapped up in the Christmas flash-forward drama?

At the moment, all we know is that a man will be killed - but who is the victim?
