EastEnders: The Six - Revealed is an interview special focusing on the huge Christmas Day storyline that was teased in a flashforward episode in February.

The 30-minute special will be hosted by former EastEnders star Joe Swash as he delves into the lives of six much-loved Walford matriarchs known as 'The Six', including Denise Fox (Diane Parish), Kathy Cotton (Gillian Taylforth), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) and Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), who have all been at the centre of the storyline.

As they re-watch their soap alter egos, the stars will share an exclusive behind-the-scenes insight into their characters' most gripping storyline moments of the year and discuss which man might meet a grisly end in the Vic at Christmas, as well as possible theories on how each of their characters could be driven to murder.

The BBC3 special will also offer an exclusive look at storylines still to come as we lead up to the highly-anticipated Christmas Day whodunnit reveal.

Nasfim Haque, Head of Content, BBC Three said: “The EastEnders whodunnit storyline has gripped fans since February, and we’re pleased to offer viewers on BBC Three this exclusive insight with those actresses at the heart of this gripping storyline.”

Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer of EastEnders added: “Since we announced our Christmas storyline back in February, there has been an overwhelming amount of speculation around the body in question and which one of our six Walford matriarchs might be responsible; with much of that speculation coming from the cast.  This show not only gives the audience the chance to hear from the actresses involved as they discuss their own theories but also gives some exclusive news about what’s to come this Christmas.”

Speaking on his involvement, presenter Joe Swash, said: “I absolutely loved being back in my old stomping ground, Albert Square. EastEnders holds such great memories for me, and it felt so great to be back. I loved reconnecting with Tish, Lacey and Di who I love dearly and worked with on my last stint in the show, and it was great to meet Kellie, Gillian and Bal as we looked back at some of their amazing storylines from the year.”
