WOW! What. A. Christmas. Have you just sat through an hour's worth of action-packed festive drama in Albert Square? More importantly, were you shouting at the screen, blubbing into your chocolate wrappers, or holding your head in your hands?

If so, you've come to the right place!

If you missed it, you can watch it on our programes page. HOORAY!

Did you think she'd jump?

Stacey's not only left the building, but she's left the damn country too. Noooooo! On the up, wasn't it gorg to see a content Lily, who was more interested in her mum's arm, than sitting next to strangers in a big flying machine? Bless.

Let's recap on the day's drama...

Main moments:

1. Hearing Bradley shout: "Staaaace. Stacey, ruuuun!"' from the roof of the Vic.

2. Janine stabbing herself and blaming Stacey *angry face*.

3. Max and Stacey's one-to-one on the Vic roof.

4. Stacey finally coming clean to Jean.

5. Stacey admitting to Ryan that she's doesn't love him.

6. Ronnie telling Stacey to "go".

7. Ryan walking away, as Janine's carted away by ambulance.

8. Max telling Stacey he's still in love with her. OMG.

9. Stacey declaring that she'll always love, "my Bradley".

10. Finally... Stace jetting off with Lily!

Oh! ... and of course, seeing a sober Phil wearing a paper hat! Jubbly.

What a cracker of a Christmas. What did you think? Was it full of festive suprises, or did you get what you asked for?

What was your favourite moment?

Did you hope that Stacey would fly off to start a new life? Some of you thought so in our blog: 'Your predictions on Stacey's exit'. Although a fair few of you hoped she'd run off with Ryan.

Stacey's last line:

You also made guesses on what Stacey's last line was going to be. 2lip... I'm afraid it wasn't "I'm pregnant." StaceyandRyan, you were close, but yet so far with: "Like that's gunna stop me."

Her ACTUAL last line was...

"I'll be alright. I always am. Bye Max."

Miss her already?

Watch Stacey's year:

Stacey narrates over a film of her last year in the Square.

Enjoy Stacey's best bits:

Have you hearted Stacey yet? Share your love for her on Facebook and Twitter. Just use hashtag #iheartstacey. What. A. Christmas. Indeed. We'll miss Stacey, but we'll certainly enjoy the memories!

Merry Christmas. May yours be full of joy... and not so much drama.

    This was crap. Soap villans are supposed to get their comeuppance. I was hoping she would either die or go to prison. I guess this way she can return and face justice later.

    What a letdown! Janine is just as bad and has never really paid for what she did but she keeps coming back as villans make good entertainment.

    Seen someone as evil as Stacey die would be fun but then we would lose alot of plot potential. Still what goes around comes around and hopefully in the not too distant future we can see her go to jail or something. Seeing her face when she finally gets arrested will be the best ever!

    As an eastenders fan I have to say that I was disapointed with the christmas day episode the only good thing was when janine stabbed herself it seemed like two minutes in to watching everybody was sat down for dinner usally the story builds threw the day more and what happend to everybody singing around the christmas tree on christmas eve where all the characters gather around and the tention of the storyline builds ready for christmas day ??? i watched christmas 2009 to compare and i give that 9/10 compared to this year i only give 5/10 i have to say hats of to the new year episode thow very good i liked the fact the story continued exacly from where the last episode left of i hate it when you go to watch the next episode and its suddenly the next day.

    Eastenders just isnt the same without stacey and lily spreading their love. I HATE JANINE!!!!! I WISH SHE WOULD GET THE DEATH SHE DESERVES - SLOW AND PAINFUL!!! Sorry to the person that plays her but janine is EVIL!!! Stacey is an awesome actress!! like tanyas character said in "staceys best bits" she never underplays or overplays a scene!!! I already miss Stacey and wish the person that plays her (lacey Turner) all the best in the future and hope that her and lily come back to eastenders soon! Her brother Sean is coming back soon after trying to kill roxy and hopfully one day stacey and lily will soon and stacey and ryan will get back together and maybve lily will get a brother or sister.

    miss you stacey! xx

    i was so so so so so so so so so glad that stacey got her happily ever after with lily because she really deserved it after bipolar, the death of bradley, evil becca and having to cope with her mental ill mother. :) i wish her all the best, and I hope that she returns someday ! I hope lily comes back to the sqare all grown up :)

    OMG > :( i think lacey/stacey was the BEST character in eastenders.she lights up the screen as soon as she comes on! she was a amazing actress you can tell by the amount of awards shes won that the audiance love her so much like ME :) i was partically impressed with lacey when stacey had bipolar she acted it out so relisticly i think she helped alot of people during this storyline to relise that they did have some of these symptoms.Eastenders you had a truelly amaazing actress there!! i onnly think of adult words when i think somethings true :D LOVE EASTENDERS i wanna be in it someday :) xxx
