EastEnders spoilers: Keanu Taylor finally meets his FATE on Christmas Day

Keanu Taylor and Sharon Watts on their wedding day.

Keanu Taylor finally meets his fate in Monday's Christmas Day hour-long episode of EastEnders (9:45 pm. See our TV Guide for full listings).

Keanu Taylor wakes up on Christmas morning in touching distance of the family life he's always wanted.

After proposing to Sharon Watts, he was confident he'd have a permanent place in the life of their son Albie, not realising that Sharon is hiding a BOMBSHELL secret about Albie's real paternity.

While Keanu and Sharon get ready for their big day, across the Square Keanu's sister Bernie Taylor is sitting all alone in the cold.

Poor Bernie was devastated when Keanu betrayed his own family and let mum Karen Taylor take the blame for Albie's fake kidnapping

Keanu had cooked up the plot in a bid to stop Sharon moving abroad with Albie and when the truth came out, Karen covered for Keanu, fleeing the Square with Mitch Baker.

Struggling for money, after an emotional chat with her mum over the phone, Bernie begs Keanu to tell Sharon the truth about the kidnapping and bring Karen home.

Determined not to ruin things with Sharon, Keanu flat out refuses and tells her she's not welcome at the wedding.

Pushed to the brink by her brother's betrayal, Bernie interrupts Phil Mitchell's Christmas lunch and tells him she has something to say...

At the church, an emotional Keanu waits for his bride and is overawed when Sharon arrives looking stunning, with Albie by her side.

The couple look at each other tenderly as they're about to say their vows but the ceremony is interrupted by a furious Phil.

Is Keanu about to get his just desserts over his lies?

Six of Walford's women join Sharon in the Queen Vic, after their own Christmas Day dramas.

Suki Panesar is stressed ahead of her plan to leave husband Nish Panesar for good. Only son Vinny Panesar knows she's about to do a flit and when he calls her in a panic, she's forced to return home.

Linda Carter is struggling with temptation after falling off the wagon, pushed too far by rapist Dean Wicks, who cruelly sent her text pretending to be her dead husband Mick Carter.

Meanwhile, Kathy Cotton is spending Christmas as a single woman, yet again, after discovering that husband Rocky Cotton torched her beloved cafe for the insurance, then tricked her into selling to his debtor, Nish.

The women share their woes over a glass or two but in a flash something HUGE happens that will change their lives forever.
