EastEnders boss reveals if new family are connected to big Christmas murder

EastEnders fans have been absolutely gripped by the latest murder mystery story playing out on screens, despite the fact that the murder hasn’t technically happened yet.

If you’re confused, we’re talking about a murder that is set to happen on Christmas day, following a flash forward episode aired in February.

The festive episode will see The Six gathered around the body of a mystery man, with Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) announcing that he is dead.

Ever since Sharon uttered those words, we have been completely obsessed with finding clues that may link her, Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) and Denise Fox (Diane Parish) to a potential victim.

One such clue that left us all totally baffled was the appearance of a knight in shining armour in the back of the flash forward scene.

All sorts of theories came flying out, with many believing it to have links to Stacey due to the fact that it was placed directly behind her.

However, show boss Chris Clenshaw threw us a morsel by mentioning not once, but twice, that Linda Carter would soon find an unexpected ‘knight in shining armour’.

When the arrival of a new family called the Knights was announced, suddenly things began to fall into place.

But we’re still left wondering: Do they have something to do with the murder?

Perhaps not, according to Chris Clenshaw.

‘Now the knight in shining armour makes sense to everyone. When we shot that scene the Knights weren’t in scripts so everyone was speculating.

‘Its been with George behind all his bars.’

Actress Kellie Bright revealed that she was just as confused as viewers by its sudden appearance.

‘I walked onto set and there was this bloody knight, what’s that doing here? Something to do with the new family.’

‘He’s my right hand man,’ actor Colin Salmon joked.

At least that is one red herring crossed off the list. Or is it? We’ll draw a pencil line through it for now…
