EastEnders teases moment character returns 'to destroy Janine' in Christmas bombshell

EastEnders has revealed dramatic scenes will take centre-stage on Christmas Day, paving the way for the exits of Mick Carter and Janine Butcher.

It's teased Danny Dyer's character could die, as he's set for terrifying scenes with pregnant wife-to-be Janine Butcher after their wedding day - that's if it goes ahead.

What is known is that Shirley Carter is out to get Janine, believing she is hiding something - but she might not be the only one.

Jada Lennox makes her big return to the soap for Christmas, and she drops a major bombshell on Sharon Watts.

Viewers are convinced this bombshell will be about Janine, and that this will begin her Christmas downfall - as Shirley continues to try and expose her daughter-in-law.

Fans know that earlier this year, Janine's rivalry with love rival Linda Carter over Mick left Linda fighting for her life.

Janine crashed the car they were in before fleeing the scene, not before moving Linda over into the driver seat - as to make it look as though she had crashed the car while drunk.

The truth has not been revealed, and neither has the fact she almost had Linda's daughter Annie taken away from her.

She paid Jada Lennox to set Linda up by hiding booze around the alcoholic's home, with Janine keen to make it seem as though Annie was not safe in her care.

Jada planned to tell the truth but was threatened by Janine, leading to her fleeing Walford in August.

Now, Jada is back and she drops big news on Sharon and the family - and it's not long before Linda's best pal Sharon takes action.

Spoilers tease she "knows what she has to do" - but will the bombshell be about Linda and Janine, and will Sharon expose the truth?

Viewers certainly think so, with many of them taking to Twitter to predict Jada would reveal all about Janine's actions - leading to her being found out.

Whatever happens, Shirley continues to make accusations towards Janine which she denies - just as her young daughter Scarlett walks in.

Of course viewers know that Scarlett is aware of her mother's lies and her possible involvement in the crash - so will the youngster finally spill the beans?

Spoilers confirm that secrets and lies explode at the pub and "all hell breaks loose", with Mick's world imploding around him.

He's forced to choose between his ex Linda and new partner Janine as he faces a harsh reality, in what is confirmed to be his last day in Walford.

With scenes still under wraps, it remains to be seen whether Mick lives to tell the tale amid death rumours.

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