The Mitchells' merry photoshoot

Lou | 12:15 UK time, Monday, 21 December 2009

We have one jubbly present for you all to feast your eyes on... the Mitchells' smiling! Aww, what a treat. It's not as if the faaaaaaaamily have had much to smile about what with arduous Archie and his sidekick Janine. That girl needs to be taught a lesson... where's "fat Pat" to give the girl a slap?

You'll find all the snaps that were taken at this shoot decorating the TV mags and newspaper pages over this jolly season. Hooray.

It was a cosy Christmas affair. Babs (Peggy) arrived at the merry 'ole photoshoot first, Sam (Ronnie) had bags of energy at such an early time of day... OMG that girl has enthusiasm by (Santa's) sackload. And charming Larry shared a few jokes with Steve (Phil) over a brew. Check out the jolly video...

    It's such a shame I can't watch the photoshoot. It's not available in my area (Holland). I've lived in London for 6 years and have been watching East Enders from 1989 and I love it! I hope it will be possible to see all those extra's in the future though.

    Samantha Janus is looking amazing! Please don't give Ronnie a happy ending just yet, her sad and tragic life is all that's keeping EastEnders exciting at the moment! We love Ronnie sad, that's just how the character is meant to be, she's a tragic heroine and although I think her and Jack should reunite, she should still have some sadness in her life!

    Firstly Happy Christmas to all the cast and crew and writers at Eastenders. As an avid watcher for the past 25 years I must say that the team have surpassed themselves this past year with storylines. I live in Limerick, Ireland and unfortunately a lot of the video content on this site is not available to me here but I have to comment and pass kudos on to Samantha Womack for the first rate performance she delivers time and time again whenever she is on screen. Whilst I was devastated by the ending to the Ronnie and Danielle storyline in April, I must say that it really did open up the door to explore the angst that exists within Ronnie as a result of this even further. Her performance facing off to Larry on Tuesday night had me glued to the screen and I was transfixed by the job that both actors did with that scene. Lets not forget Rita as she is the backbone of that Ronnie and Roxy relationship.....Whilst Sam is the paramount reason why I tune into Eastenders each and every night, I must say that the pairing of Ronnie and Roxy was ingenious by Diedrick and Dominic and I hope, once the Archie murder fallout ends, we start to see the ligher more comical side of the "sisters doin' it for themselves" relationship statt to emerge on screen again. I still remember that Calvin Harris "I get all the girls" advert hailing their arrival...they were the good old days of fun R & R - bring them back again I say.

    thank u for posting my comment. it does mean a lot to us loyal fans that our comments get recognised and posted. have written three times now to cast but no response. i guess online is the way to go :-) I would like to make a special xmas shout out to kris green at DS. He is such a great guy and has done such a fab job promoting EE this past year and beyond. I'm in Ireland so I fall a little bit outside the radar when it comes to previews on this site but his site never fails to let me down. Also he recommended to me where I could order "Last Tango" so that's done now fo the new year and I eagerly anticipate its arrival. Btw, that three hander with dot, ronnie and bianca was ingenious and notwithstanding the danielle episode it was for me the best episode of the year that dealt with character development/angst. Whilst previously I have never been a huge lacey turner fan, I have to compliment that young lady on the outstanding performance she turned out this year. I have firsthand experience of bipolar disorder and she never once did the illness a disservice..........Kudos to Lacey and kudos to mr. ashdown again and again and again...to sum it up.............."THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING " ......HAPPY XMAS TO ALL THE CAST, CREW AND WRITERS AT EASTENDERS AND EVERY GOOD WISH FOR 2010 AND BEYOND

    RONNIE HAS NOT PUT A FOOT WRONG IN MY OPINION THIS YEAR AS A CHARACTER APART FROM THAT ONE BLIP WITH JOEL....HE WAS SUCH A NICE GUY (THE KIND I WOULD LIKE MESELF) AND SHE REALLY DID CHUCK HIM OUT LIKE A BAD SMELL BUT I GUESS HE WAS HURTING SO I'LL FORIGVE HER - LOL

    OKAY, I NEGLECTED TO MENTION ON MY PREVIOUS POST THE RONNIE AND JACK RELATIONSHIP.....I USED TO HATE HATE HATE WHEN THESE TWO WERE ON SCREEN AS WHILST JACK (SCOTT) SEEMS SUCH A GENUINELY NICE GUY IN REALITY I REALLY DID NOT SEE HIM AS THE PERFECT MATCH FOR RONNIE AS HE WAS LED BY HIS XXXX AND NOT BY HIS HEART A LOT OF THE TIME ON SCREEN.......BUT THE SCENE U GUYS SCREENED TUESDAY NIGHT WITH RONNIE ON THE BARSTOOL AND JACK FINDING OUT SHE WAS EXPECTING WAS SO TOUCHING AND EMOTIOANL THAT I AM STARTING TO BAT FOR THIS PAIR.....I ONLY HOPE JACK IS NOT THE KILLER THOUGH IF I WAS A BETTIN' WOMAN (AND I SO AM NOT AS LOTTO IS THE FURTHEST I GO) I WOULD BET ON THE OUTSIDER BRADLEY !!!!!

    I love Eastenders and the storyline with the Mitchell's at the minute i brilliant. Just one problem, Lucas killed Owen, then hid him underground...when will the residents of Albert Square find out about him? I'm glad that Ricky and Bianca are back together and that Whitney is with Todd. Keep up the good work :)
