Speaking today on Gaby Roslin’s BBC Radio London show, Treadwell-Collins said: “We’ve kind of pushed the boat out this Christmas. Normally,EastEnders looks at Christmas Day on its own but what we’ve tried to do this year is look at it the way we looked at Live Week back in February over that whole period, so from Christmas Eve to January and beyond, the stories keep on coming, the twists keep on coming.

“There are some really, really big surprises that we haven’t revealed and we’re not going to reveal – you’re going to have to watch live.

The executive producer continued: “It’s an hour-long on Christmas Day but then the action keeps going through to Boxing Day. You’ve got Danny Dyer’s stag, it then goes into Mick and Linda’s wedding, a lot of secrets blowing up between Vincent and Kim, you’ve got Mitchells, you’ve got Beales, Kat and Alfie come back and then there’s a massive story for Stacey Slater.

“Plus, someone will die on Christmas Day. We haven’t revealed it to anyone, there will be a surprise death.”
