EastEnders: How the Walford cast reacted to explosive Christmas Day episode

Via

It was a Christmas to remember on EastEnders last night as the soap delivered one of its strongest Christmas Day episodes ever.

For those who missed it – or have been living under a rock – Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, finally discovered the truth about wife Linda”s rape ordeal and beat up evil rapist Dean Wicks in the Queen Vic.

Shirley Carter earned the final “doof doof” moment as she screamed, "He”s your bruvva!", revealing that Mick is actually her son.

It”s certainly a Christmas Mick won”t forget any time soon.

And it wasn”t just as humble fans that were gripped by last night”s soap spectacular – so were the cast.

Here”s how they reacted to the episode:

It all started quite innocently

Yeah, just another fun, stress-free, lovely Christmas in Albert Square…

Here we go, Christmas in Walford #TheTruthWillOut @bbceastenders
