For the second year in a row, the Carter family will go all-out for Christmas as they transform the Queen Vic into Santa’s grotto.
Not one to disappoint the kiddies in Albert Square, Mick agrees to be Father Christmas. A bittersweet moment for Mick, as the part was played by his dad last year. Here’s hoping that Mick is more joyous than Stan proved to be!!
One by one the children visit ‘Santa’ to give him their Christmas wish list. Buster and Shirley are spending their first Christmas with their grand-daughter Jade and take her to the Vic to talk to Santa. The entire Carter clan get in on the act with Linda assisting Santa as Mrs. Claus and Lee, Tina and Nancy dressed as helpful elves.
These festive scenes are once again the beginning of the focus on the Carter family at Christmas as Linda and Mick’s wedding looms and Dean weighs heavily on their minds.
EastEnders airs these scenes on 21 and 22 December on BBC One and BBC One HD
