EastEnders‘ Shirley Carter will vow to expose Janine Butcher’s lies on Christmas Day.
Shirley will become increasingly suspicious of Janine over the festive season, adamant she is keeping something from her son Mick.
Although fans will have to wait and see whether Shirley can get to the truth or not, she is on a mission by the time Christmas arrives.
On Christmas Day morning, Shirley is determined to expose Janine for who she is but hasn’t quite pieced the full puzzle together.
With Linda by her side, Shirley heads to The Vic, where they are able to make peace with Mick following a difficult few days.
Janine, on the other hand, is horrified to see Jada arrive and is determined to keep her away from Linda.

Both Linda and Shirley are stunned when Janine invites them to join the Carters’ Christmas lunch, but there’s a bigger shock ahead.
At the Christmas dinner table, Shirley doesn’t give up trying to expose Janine and it’s not long before a vicious row ensues. But will she be able to expose Janine’s secrets?
When discussing Shirley’s big vendetta, Charlie Brooks – who plays Janine – said: “I think Janine is oblivious to the actual extent of it.
“She’s almost amused by Shirley because she doesn’t think that anyone’s got anything on her.
“It’s only Scarlett, at this point, who could really mess it all up. I think Janine is almost weary and slightly amused by Shirley.”
It’s already been confirmed that both Janine and Mick are due to bow out of the show in this year’s Christmas episodes.
EastEnders airs on Mondays-Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
