It appears that peace and goodwill to all men doesn't apply in soapland, especially not to the characters in Eastenders!
With the identity of Kat Moon's secret lover out in the open, Christmas Day won't be a joyous one for the residents of Albert Square as scenes from the festive episode will see Kat slap Derek on the face when she learns that he has scuppered her chances of reuniting with her husband Alfie.

The episode will also see a scorned Derek threaten his brother Max over the secret the car salesman has been keeping from his family, including his bride-to-be (again) Tanya.
Speaking about the explosive storyline which will no doubt keep us hooked on Christmas Day, The Sun reports Jake Wood, who plays Max, saying recently:
"We’ve spent the best part of a year keeping people guessing about the secret. When we started filming, other cast members were in shock. If that’s how people who work on the show reacted, it will hopefully have the same impact on viewers at home.”
The Christmas special of the soap will air tomorrow night on BBC One, will you be watching? We will!
