    With only a few more days until viewers can unwrap the festive treat that is the EastEnders Christmas Day bumper episode, we caught up with executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins and actress Kellie Bright, who plays Linda Carter.

    We wondered how long the Christmas Day storyline had been in the pipeline.

    “When we brought the Carters on last Christmas, we knew that we were going to explode them the following Christmas,” Dominic reveals. "We had tent pegs of the story laid out in place - the best stories are always planned.

    “Kellie and Danny always knew that this Christmas there would be two moments: That Mick finds out half way through, and that Doof Doof moment,” he adds. "And Linda Henry is so amazing - she doesn’t get enough praise. And I said this before, but Linda Marlowe was always in our heads as her mum and at story conferences six years ago we talked about the Carters, so this moment has kind of been bubbling for years!”

    EastEnders fans have been glued to one of soapland’s biggest ever mysteries since Good Friday 2014 - and can now use their detective skills in an online competition to win a tour of Albert Square.

    Eagle-eyed viewers will see the list of suspects in Lucy Beale’s murder investigation dramatically decrease this Christmas and over the coming weeks as the storyline heads towards its climax in February 2015, during EastEnders 30th Anniversary week.

    Lucy Beale

    Winners of an ‘EastEnders golden ticket’ will find themselves in one of the most famous pubs in Britain and exploring Walford’s other legendary landmarks as they are guided through E20 by a star of the award-winning soap.

    Dominic Treadwell-Collins said “We really want to reward our viewers’ loyalty as we celebrate our anniversary – and what better way to celebrate 30 years than to give 30 fans the chance to spend the day behind-the-scenes. But fans will have to play detective in order to earn their prize – correctly work out who killed Lucy Beale and you could soon be walking onto Albert Square.”

    Further details and entry to the competition will be released in January 2015. However, for now, tune in, start gathering the clues...

    Tonight (12th December) Sylvie, the Carters' missing matriarch, arrives on The Square - and it’s revealed she is living with Alzheimer’s disease.

    Sylvie Sylvie

    By 2015, 850,000 people will have dementia in the UK and 62 per cent of those, like Sylvie, will have Alzheimer’s. Many believe dementia means losing your memory to the point where you do not recognise loved ones. Most don’t know that dementia can set in long before it becomes severe and early signs can be as unassuming as losing the thread of a conversation.

    As part of the research for the storyline, Alzheimer’s Society ran a Dementia...
