Join us down in Walford for updates on EastEnders, the long-running BBC soap opera. Spoilers, storylines and cast gossip waiting for you inside!
Gillian Taylforth hasn’t even made her first proper appearance on Eastenders, since her big return on the recent live episode, but already the actress has landed herself in trouble with producers. It was thought that Gillian’s character Kathy Beale had been dead for decades, after her husband Phil Mitchell and son Ian Beale were informed that she had died in a car crash many moons ago, however that all changed when she returned to the Square last month.
Sonia Fowler is set to finally get some on Eastenders this month and we have pictures of the moment when the Walford resident gives into her feelings for Queen Vic barmaid Tina Carter. The two ladies have grown very close of late and have been supporting one another through their constant and various family dramas. The heart to hearts and long lingering hugs has led to the ladies developing some less than platonic feelings for one another and when they do take things to the next level, insiders
Actress Ellen Thomas is making her return to Walford this year and it’s been announced that the comedy star will be showing up on Eastenders for the third time in a brand new role. The 50 year old has already appeared on the hit BBC soap twice previously, but this time she’s returning as a formidable matriarch character, who some insiders have compared to former Queen Vic landlady Peggy Mitchell.
Abi Branning’s odds of killing Lucy Beale have been slashed in half by Ladbrokes. Following Tuesday night’s episode punters were quick to back the Branning sister to have done the deed after Max questioned if she caused Lucy’s death. Abi now finds herself chalked up with odds of 4/1 (from 8/1), while Bobby Beale remains the favourite at 3/1.
Bobby Beale has been shunted into favouritism for the first time in the Who Killed Lucy Beale market with Ladbrokes. The Walford pendulum has swung once again, and punters’ cash has now forced the bookies to make Bobby Beale the new favourite to have killed Lucy after seeing a flood of money over night, and the schoolboy is now just chalked up at 3/1.
Mick Carter now finds himself as the new second favourite with Ladbrokes to have killed Lucy Beale. In the biggest whodunit of all time an eleventh hour gamble is developing on Mick to swap The Vic for HMP Belmarsh, as punters have backed his odds into just 5/1 from a huge 66/1 in the last week alone.
EastEnders star Danny Dyer may have suffered from a severe case of foot in mouth disease while recording an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show – which airs tomorrow night, Saturday 31 January – given that he revealed that he often “re-writes” the show’s scripts in order to add cockney authenticity to the lines he delivers as Mick Carter. And if you’re a fan of the now sadly defunct sitcom Friends, you’ll know that when character Joey Tribbiani made a similar boast to a soap magaz
This week of revelations has seen Ladbrokes’ punters back Lucy Beale’s killer to come from within her own family. As Lucy’s ghost hovers over the Square bets have started to pour in for her nearest and dearest to be revealed as Walford’s latest killer, and it’s her father Ian who is being backed most by punters, seeing his odds cut into 10/1.

It really was EastEnders’ night last night at The National Television Awards as they bagged every award that they were nominated for but the emotions running in the O2 arena were nothing compared to how they are feeling about next month’s live episode – So Danny Dyer says… The former movie star, who picked up the award for Best Serial Drama last night for his role of Mick Carter, spoke to waiting reporters after the award ceremony to discuss his feelings about being part of t
Punters have been quick to back Abi Branning with Ladbrokes in the Eastenders whodunit market following a clue at the National Television Awards. As the clue from the music box rang around the O2 arena on Wednesday night it only left punters further convinced that Abi is Lucy Beale’s killer, and after being flooded with bets the bookies have been forced to cut her odds into just 6/4.
It’s the murder mystery that’s had the nation gripped for months! And today The National Television Awardshave announced that a ‘major clue’ will be given out live on air, as EastEnders fans get one step closer to working out ‘who killed Lucy’.

Tomorrow sees the All About Soap launch this year’s search to find the best soap moment from the last 12 months, and whilst the official nomination list has yet to be revealed, we can reveal some of the biggest contenders. The past 12 months have been epic in the land of the Great British Soaps, with no less than seven and a half murders (we still aren’t convinced that Mercedes McQueen in Hollyoaks is dead), ten weddings, three births and one train crash (off the top of our heads) to
The National Television Awards are always a grand affair and help pull us all out of the gloomy January blues, so it is only right that the rest of the television industry makes way for them. Let’s face it, apart from the second series of Broadchurch and Benidorm, what else is there to look forward to in the damp and dismal month?
National Television Awards 2015: Snubs for Peter Capaldi & Coronation Street in this years nominations!
The shortlist for this year’s National Television Awards nominations has been revealed, and there are quite a few surprises. The most notable snub seems to be for Peter Capaldi, the new Doctor Who, who has not been given the nod in the Best Drama Performance category, despite the show being up for Best Drama, and despite the tradition of each Time Lord being up for the Best Performance gong.
Cindy Beale is the latest suspect to enter the frame in the Lucy Beale whodunnit according to Ladbrokes. A run of bets into the thousands has seen Beale’s odds tumble down to 5/1 from 16/1, meaning she could soon displace favourites Abi Branning (3/1), Jane Beale (4/1) and Denise Fox (also 4/1) to become the prime suspect.
