Dominic Treadwell-Collins has said this years hour long Halloween special will be the start of many of the future storylines and push EastEnders into Christmas, New Year and spring.
“We’re proud of this episode,” he said. “Over the years we’ve made Halloween into a thing, getting scarier and scarier - and this episode is a little bit special. This episode kicks off a lot of big things. Big stuff for Sharon and big stuff for Phil. This is the start of a massive storyline for Steve McFadden that will take us through until Easter. And big stuff for Stacey and Martin.”
But that's not all, “Also watch out for the Carters,” Dominic said. “Whitney becomes a bit more permanent behind the bar through her relationship with Lee . And we’re getting ready to film some scenes with wetsuits! As for Vincent - over the next few months we’re going to find out more about his feud with Ronnie. Vincent’s been intriguing and now we’re going to find out exactly what’s been going on behind those glaring eyes!”
We revealed last week that Kat, Alfie and Charlie are also returning briefly. We will get lots more of their story before they head off to Ireland. Jessie and Shane will start filming the scenes in Ireland next week.
The hour-long Halloween special will air at 7.30pm on Friday 30th October.
