Hearing this, Sharon decides that keeping her family safe is first priority and she threatens to go to the police and tell them what Bobby has done.

As tensions heighten amongst the adults, little do they know that things between Bobby and Dennis are escalating, beginning with Bobby’s envy of Dennis Jr’s bike. As the boys ride their new bikes in the Square, a series of events happen that will leave lives hanging in the balance…

Rumour has it that Bobby will cause another accident that may result in the death of another resident of Albert Square.  But just who it will be remains a tightly kept secret.

Dominic Treadwell-Collins has promised that the dark storyline surrounding Bobby will reach it’s climax this Christmas, but will it spell danger for a Beale or a Mitchell?!

These holiday episode promises to be another one that fans won’t be forgetting in a hurry!

EastEnders airs these scenes in a special hour-long Christmas Day episode on the 25th December at 8:45pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
