The highly anticipated instalment of the BBC show will see six favourite characters look horrified as their world is turned upside down.

EastEnders has confirmed a huge schedule shake-up

Suki Panesar is also at the centre of the episode

However fans won’t be able to watch it on iPlayer before it airs on our screens this Monday.

Instead they will have to wait until 7.30pm at the start of the week to find out what happens.

The drama is centred around Linda Carter, Stacey Slater, Suki Panesar, Kathy Beale, Denise Fox and Sharon Watts.

The trailer dropped earlier this month and dropped some major hints about what is to come.

An ominous voiceover warns: “In a flash, everything changes.”

The dramatic trailer starts by showing Linda, who is played by Kellie Bright, looking deeply stressed behind the bar.

Linda can then be heard saying: “There is a moment just before you do something…

The camera then shows Stacey Slater, portrayed by Lacey Turner, appears plagued by worry.

Meanwhile, Kathy Beale(Gillian Taylforth), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Denise Fox (Diane Parish) and Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) all seem frightened about what is about to unfold.

The women can be heard saying: When time freezes and you think is this really happening, am I really going to do this, suddenly it’s done and your whole world shatters.”
