EastEnders fans are set to face disappointment if they try to tune in to the popular BBC soap next Tuesday (December 5), as it has been taken off air in a schedule shake-up.

Instead of watching their favourite Albert Square residents, BBC One viewers will be treated with the women’s football, with their latest match airing in the usual EastEnders timeslot.

This comes just as EastEnders is ramping up towards their big Christmas murder, so fans will surely be disappointed to be missing out.

Fortunately, they will still get all four episodes that week, with the usual episodes airing on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (December 4, 6 and 7) as well as an additional episode on Friday (December 8).

During the dramatic week a number of secrets are at risk of being exposed, including the truth behind Albie’s kidnap.

A suspicious Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) is onto Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) and Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) for their involvement, and soon finds the proof he needs to expose everything.

Elsewhere, Denise Fox (Diane Parish) returns home ahead of her involvement in the Christmas Day murder, and is horrified to find Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) living in her house.

Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) and Reiss Colwell (Jonny Freeman) get good news from the fertility clinic – but it is overshadowed by bad news about Reiss’ wife Debbie. Luckily, Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) is on hand to give Sonia a pep talk.

And with Elaine (Harriet Thorpe) and Yolande (Angela Wynter) organising two rival Christmas events, what could possibly go wrong?

There’s lots to be looking forward to in Albert Square in the coming weeks, and nothing more so than the highly anticipated murder.

With The Six set to be stood over a dead body in the Queen Vic, it is only a matter of time before we learn exactly how they come to be there.

We’ll just have to wait one extra day next week to see the drama unfold!
