Secrets and lies have a habit of coming out in Walford, and this Christmas is no exception.
Since the Carters arrived in the square, the family have settled in to The Queen Victoria, but although Mick may think that everything is running smoothly for his family, he is unaware that a few of them are harbouring dark secrets of their own. Linda has been through the most traumatic experience of her life, raped by Mick's brother Dean. Worried what the truth will do to Mick and the repercussions it will have on their family, Linda has kept it to herself... But for how long?
Since Mick was born, Shirley has been burdened with the secret that she is not Mick's sister but his mother. A secret she has been desperate to keep hidden. But with all the family gathered for Christmas and a surprise appearance from Shirley's long lost mother Sylvie, will Shirley's shameful secret stay buried?
As Mick is pulling out all the stops to make the Carter family's first Christmas in The Queen Victoria perfect, it seems as though the rest of the family are desperately trying to keep their secrets, but with ticking time bomb Dean lurking, the Carters are set to explode.
