In a simple but powerful video, EastEnders reveals some of the pain that Linda (Kellie Bright), Sharon (Letitia Dean) and Kat (Jessie Wallace) will suffer in episode airing this autumn.

Linda will be raped by twisted Dean… Sharon’s wedding will feature a gunshot – and is that blood on her dress?… And Kat will lose her home – and her babies? – after desperate Alfie sets fire to it for the insurance.

EastEnders continues on BBC1, Monday, September 15, 8.00pm.
