With Christmas day just around the corner, it's time for the EastEnder's special - and, as always, it promises to be one of the most explosive episodes of the year and fans will not want to miss it.

It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year but this year is anything but for Max Branning. With his revenge plan ruined, Max is a man on the edge as he desperately tries to claw himself out of an impossible situation but unfortunately for him, Phil Mitchell decides to take matters into his own hands but will he get rid of Max Branning once and for all?


In newly released pictures from the festive episode, Max (Jake Wood) can be seen in Albert Square with resident villain Phil (Steve Mcfadden) - but there's one very important detail: Phil has a gun, and he doesn't look like he'll be afraid to use it.

With a plan to get rid of Max once and for all, Phil can be seen stumbling towards his enemy with the weapon - but will this be the end of Max? Or will Phil end up in the firing line?

Jake Wood, who has played the EastEnder since 2006, already gave fans a hint of what is to come during an interview with The Mirror Online.


Explaining that the festive period will be explosive for Walford, he praised the BBC soaps scriptwriters, saying: "I think in the whole time, the 12 years I've been at EastEnders, they're the best scripts I've read.

“Literally there is something happening every second on screen. As I say, they’re the most action packed scripts I’ve ever read.

“You can’t pause to take a breath they’re pack full of action.”

Jake also added: “Will they change they Square forever? Undoubtedly. There are some major events that happen."
