EastEnders fans convinced Elaine was in Christmas flashforward clip after Sharon clue

EastEnders viewers think another character that wasn't shown may have featured in the recent flashfoward clip, teasing the Christmas Day episode.

Some viewers have been convinced since the clip aired that Sharon Watts is talking to someone in front of her, when she reveals that a mystery man is dead.

Those who have seen the clip know that five other female characters are stood behind Sharon, and seem to be the people she is speaking with - but this hasn't stopped speculation another mystery character is in front of them all in The Queen Vic.

Now, fans are wondering if it's Elaine who, if anyone, is stood out of shot of the camera.

The known six 'suspects' include Elaine's daughter Linda Carter, Sharon, Denise Fox, Suki Panesar, Stacey Slater and Kathy Beale.

Linda has a cut lip in the clip and there's also a figure of a knight in shining armour in the scene.

Viewers will soon meet the new family the Knights, including Elaine's boyfriend George Knight, who are set to run the pub with her.

Fans are speculating George may be the mystery dead male on the floor in the clip who is being killed off this Christmas.

This has led to another theory that Elaine could be in the pub when it happens, and that Sharon tells her he's dead.

While it does look a little like Sharon is looking up at someone, she may just be staring into the distance.

That hasn't stopped fans being convinced someone else is there, and that this person could well be Queen Vic owner Elaine.

Reacting to a picture of 'The Six' in their different coloured dresses, one viewer tweeted: "and Elaine in orange is the one Sharon is telling he’s dead out of shot."

Another fan speculated: "The Six are actually The Seven? There’s gonna be someone else there."

A third viewer added: "Had a random thought yesterday about the flashforward... Maybe The Six + Elaine form a protection circle around Eve because Nish is trying to kill her, as he knows about her & Suki & they just take him out Avengers style!"

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
