The spookiest week of the year is upon us!

So who's being tricked - and who's in for a treat? Rose seems to be cozying up to the reverend - having her pumpkin pie and eating it too. Jodie's fallen under Anthony's spell; she must have forgotten what curiosity killed...

Over with the Masoods', Yusef continues to spin his web of deceipt - of corpse. Roxy's actions come back to haunt her, and Janine swoops in on her broomstick to make matters worse...

If you have anything to say about this weeks episodes, this is the place to say it - cackle away!

EastEnders goes to the Max for Branning week.

For one week only, EastEnders will be on our screens every week night to celebrate the return of Max Branning (Jake Wood) and the arrival of his older brother Derek (Jamie Foreman).

Derek's arrival will shock the entire family who haven’t seen him for years. Will he be the same destructive, dangerous man he used to be, and if so, will his family give him a warm welcome or the cold shoulder?

How will Tanya feel about Max's return? Will she finally find the courage to  tell the people who love her about her cancer and treatment?

Find out what happens during the week commencing Monday 21 November, AKA Branning week!

Love is in the air - doo doo doo doo doo doo.

It's snogs galore in Walford this week. We hate to kiss and tell but... Lola and Ben (did you see that one coming?), Pat and Norman (what will Jean do to Pat when she hears about this - feed her some week-old sausage surprise?). Plus, well, you'll have to watch to see if there are any more. Game of the week - spot the snogs...

For others, love's becoming a complicated business. Syed's caught in the middle, but who should he choose? And should he have to choose at all? What would you do? Meanwhile, will baby Yasmin bring Masood and Zainab closer? Or does Yusef have more tricks up his sleeve to keep them apart?

If anything strikes you about this week's episodes, this is the place to say it!

What's going on in the mind of Lauren Branning?

Nickie | 10:30 UK time, Friday, 14 October 2011

Have you been watching Lauren this week? It's sort of broken our hearts a little. 

She's been supporting her mum through radiotherapy and chemotherapy, making her a mix CD (defining tune, Barbie Girl by Aqua) and cooking her up rice pudding and toast, just like Tanya used to when Lauren was small. Sob.

Next week we'll have the first of three new Lauren diaries

But before you get access to more of her video secrets, we thought we would break down the workings of her mind into a PIE CHART. It's proper scientific... Plus after that, we take a look at her style...
