Sadly, it’s unlikely that the 'EastEnders' family will have an easy ride and there are plenty of secrets which could - and probably will - ruin Christmas.

Over the festive period, Mick is set to discover that Linda was raped by Dean Wicks, and actor Danny Dyer has teased viewers with details on how his character will react.

Speaking of Mick’s response to the news, Danny tells Digital Spy: “Whether you're a violent man or avoid violence at all costs, you are going to go insane.

"And I take insanity to a new level. Justice is served. Beautifully."

Sadly, they won't stay this happy for long...

However it doesn’t end there, and it also seems likely that Mick will discover Shirley is actually his mother, when Shirley’s own mum Sylvie, played by Linda Marlowe, arrives in Walford.

Elsewhere in Albert Square, the Beale family are set to face more drama as they prepare for their first Christmas without Lucy.

While the young businesswoman’s killer is yet to be revealed, the investigation is set to take a number of twists and turns before the storyline concludes in February.

Watch ‘EastEnders’ on Christmas Day to see the events unfold.
