Gallery: (A)muse over Ricky and Bianca

Lou | 12:00 UK time, Monday, 28 December 2009

"Rickaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!" *the sound of shattered glass*. Oh how we love Bianca's gob. And, so does the loveable man himself, as they're getting hitched! *blows her fringed horn* It's only taken the poor soul a proposal from the fiery redhead for the penny to drop. Bless.

Oh, how it melts the icicles on my heart to see Ricky and Bi share a bit of romance this Christmas. BUT... will the troubled twosome head for marital bliss 13 years after their first attempt?

The duo have had more ups and downs than Heathrow's runways, but we all love a bit of drama! Reminicse over their colourful past together.

This week on EastEnders: Who Killed Archie Mitchell?*

Nickie | 21:00 UK time, Friday, 25 December 2009

You: Sleighbells ring, are you listening?
Me: No, I'm too busy trying to figure out who killed Archie Mitchell 
You: Oh OK... any ideas?
Me: Erm... it was Phil... *no* Ronnie... *no* Peggy. Ryan. Ooh I know it was Jack. The dark horse! Hmmm... it could have been Sam. Ian! Lucy! Or Bradley... with that left hook of his... Janine...?
You: *stroke chin and watch this sinister apparition which materialises in front of your very eyes*

Me: Where the hell did that video come from? Was it generated by my thought processes?
You: Err - ?
Me: The outside money's on Dirty Den's ghost rearing up from it's ghostly home in the cellar of the Vic and whacking his earthly rival. Yep, my money's on Den.
You: I can't get a word in edgeways here. I'm off to find out what Detective Chief Inspector Marsden thinks and to reveal what I think in the comments bit below
Me: Oh good. I await your thoughts! It was definitely Den though... DR LEGG! IT WAS DR LEGG etc etc

*This is not a rhetorical question. We really do need you to tell us. LIKE, NOW PLEASE!

Death By Object

Nickie | 21:00 UK time, Friday, 25 December 2009

Stop press! Archie Mitchell done in by Queen Vic bust! But this isn't the Square's first death by random object.

Here are our Top Walford Weapons...

1. Cast Iron Dog Doorstop
Amongst the weapons in Pauline Fowler's arsenal were a machete, an AK47, a candlestick, some lead piping, a slightly -off sandwich, and a dog shaped doorstop. No prizes for guessing which Chrissie used to knock off Den.

2. Shoes
"If only he'd worn slip-on shoes," Barry's grieving wife Janine cried! Next time you complain that your strappy stilettos are killing you, give a thought to Barry Evans who was literally felled by his footwear. Janine gave the shove, the slippery soles did the rest.

Spoiler alert: Christmas day shock!

Lou | 00:00 UK time, Thursday, 24 December 2009

If you want to know more, and would rather not wait until the episode airs on Christmas day at 8pm (so impatient!)... then go ahead... click on the link below. Go on. Go on, go on, go on...

Babs and Charlie wish you a happy Christmas!

Post categories:

Lou | 12:20 UK time, Tuesday, 22 December 2009

Not only do I want to wish you a very merry Christmas (hic hic, burp)... but two EastEnders lovelies want to share their greetings with you. First up, it's none other than the perfectly packaged Barbara Windsor.

Let's hope that your Chrimbo is better than Peggy's is shaping up to be...

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...

This week on EastEnders: Money, money, money

Nickie | 20:30 UK time, Friday, 18 December 2009

Must be funny in a rich man's world. Doesn't look like anyone round Walford way's going to be getting much first hand experience of that any time soon... unless they're in cahoots with Archie Mitchell.

Bankrupt Brannings

Abi Branning

Spare a thought for poor Max and Abi who had to get by on nothing but cous cous, pesto and kidney beans this week. That'll teach Tanya for having such bourgeois taste in food. If Shirley walked out, Heather and George would have enough tinned pies to live on for a fortnight. Abi was compelled to hand over her savings to pay her Dad's debts and gave away her cat to save money on pet food/vets bills. If Santa were to pop down the chimney she'd have his boots pawned before his belly'd squeezed through the flue.

Bhangra in the Square

Lou | 17:00 UK time, Thursday, 17 December 2009

Asian Network's Adil Ray befriends Nitin Ganatra (Masood) to go in search of the Bhangra music playing around the Square. Where's it coming from?!! They both surpass the Vic (well done, lads) in their quest and get pally enroute. 

You can also watch the pair's funny outtakes - they go batty near Beale's Plaice...

Nickie | 17:29 UK time, Tuesday, 15 December 2009

Roll up, roll up for pics of the wedding of the year... or more accurately, the wedding of next year.

You'll see it on telly on New Year's Day, but in the meantime take a look at these backstage pics... *sob* It's just... *fans self* I'm fine... I just... I always cry at weddings...*collapses*

This week on EastEnders - Secrets and Lies

Nickie | 20:30 UK time, Friday, 11 December 2009

Tell the truth and shame the devil, the old saying goes. That being the case, the Prince of Darkness will be tickled pink with all the lies and intrigue afoot in Walford this week...

 

Ian's seduction swindle

 

ian.jpgEver the romantic, Ian Beale thought that convincing his internet date that he was a Walford bigshot would have her splashing around in his hot tub as quick as you could say "Jane? Err. Don't know who you're talking about, love. Now shut up and kiss me." Unfortunately his four-day stubble and refusal to pay for her drink put paid to his saucy intentions...
