Carol and David

It may finally be mission accomplished for David, who has been scheming his way back into Carol's affections since returning to The Square - and not a sprig of mistletoe in sight! But can Carol really trust David this time?

Lauren and Jake

Another couple who don't need any encouragement to get cosy this Christmas are Jake and Lauren. But with their habit of kissing in every dark nook and cranny Walford has to offer, they can't possibly keep their secret for much longer, can they? And what will Max do if he finds out?


Is there no end to David's manipulations? He's wormed his way back into Carol's affections and now he's closing in on Janine and her killer secret. But will David pull off his attempts to blackmail the Butcher, or will Janine resort to a tried and tested method to keep her money... Murder!

Sharon and Phil face-off with Mick, Shirley and Tina

Let's face it - Sharon and Shirley were never destined to be the best of friends - and the news that Shirley's brother Mick is now at the helm of The Vic is only going to up the tension! But who will win the fight over Phil?

Find out more in an action-packed bumper Christmas week of 'Enders - starting Monday 23rd December on BBC One!

    Looking forward to seeing Danny Dyer behind the bar! I think he will put up a tough front but he will be as soft as Alfie. Maybe they will in time be friends - And maybe Dyer's character will employ Alfie in time - much to Phil's pleasure.

    I think Carol's kiss with David is spur of the moment. she will be worrying that if her lump is cancerous that she may not have enough time left etc and she will not be thinking clearly. I feel sorry for her as a character as she is basically more than a gran to her grandchildren, and the only one who fully appreciates her is Masood - Well until he finds out about the kiss, which im sure David will tell him about

    The Jake and Lauren story is just silly, come up with something better for Lauren! But now is Joey soon gone, so I doubt I`m going to watch more. The new boss in EastEnders focuses on older people, it is okay but do not forget the young ones ... they can be rapidly lost, they also...

    I'm afraid EE is trapped within their own four walls of Albert Square. The set of EE is very limited compared to Hollyoaks and Neighbours where the set is very broad and has a lot of variety which keeps it fresh.

    Another point is where EE fail compared to other soaps like Hollyoaks is how EE has a tendency to bring back past characters instead of creating new fresh characters and developing them which involves them into interesting characters for the future. Hollyoaks has brilliant team of script writers and story tellers and this is why they are able to bring new characters into the soap very easily. New characters Hollyoaks recently introduced have already been involved in big story lines within the first month of their introduction.

    I don't like the Jake & Lauren storyline, only end up in tears, seems like Lauren is continuing in a destructive pattern, just a different method. I think it's time for the Brannings to move on. Tired of Max and his constant storyline of cheating, please don't let him & Stacy get together. As for Phil, I would like a new character for Phil. Never a fan of Shirley's, though the actress is great. Sharon is horrible. I like the old and new characters coming in. As with life, people move, come home, move again.

    @CarmLL. I completely disagree with you, because the website has given a lot of back ground information about him and his family and it seems exciting and they will hopefully have some brilliant storylines next year.
    Lauren and jake is a terrible idea. Max should just break them up and we'll never speak of it again. The storyline is sooooo boring.

    Phil's continued presence in 'enders is stifling plot management. Too many storylines revolve around him. His character has become unbelievable. Lauren is behaving with utter stupidity. Not that her situation doesn't happen, just that is is distasteful for it to be happening to her. There are other young female cast members that would have done that situation a lot better. Furthemore, storylines are still taking too long to reach their climax. Others don't actually achieve any climax at all; They just fizzle out.

    I agree with the fact that Lauren is s till self destructive, only just using a different means to that end.

    And seeing the pic of Carol kissing David. Am I mistaken in thinking that she is a relationship with someone else? I canot think of who though. (Hint, I am being very sarcastic). Seriously, This just makes Masood seem like a fool. To me, Carol/Masood, this relationship was nothing more than unimaginative writers. I am so tired of seeing 'couples' being formed on this show by bringing together current cast members. Need I mention Tamwar and Alice? Seriously?

    And please, someone get Sharon packing. So annoying. No redeeming characteristics at all and why Phil needs to ask her advice? God knows. Makes him look like an idiot

    Well looks like theres a lot going on in eastenders this week, wel first of all don't you think david and carol make a good couple? yeah I do, I hope they get back together again, after all they are family. also, Jake and Lauren, well they better figure out what they are going to do, whether they are going to be together for real or not, because all this sneaking around, they will for sure get caught, and someone would have seen them. So I hope that David does get Janine in the end, and I hope that Janine gets put behind bars and Alice released from prison, because Janine always gets away with murder. I just wanted to say that I really like Sharon, but why is she bother abouto whether Shirleys brother takes over the Vic or not. Anyway, I hope that we all enjoy these episodes, wel thanks for reading my message, all the very best, and take care, and also a Maeery Christmas to all of you. bye.

    These confrontations look okay, but I would like to see Sadie and joey get together somehow, I think they would suit eachother, but I don't think it will happen right now because of joey leaving but I would like to see this happen and give lauren and jake a taste of their own medicine. I hope Sadie and joey get together somehow.
