EastEnders disaster as Boxing Day turns into a nightmare for the Taylors

Boxing Day on EastEnders is set to be explosive for the Taylors after Mitch and Kandice’s surprise for Karen turns into a disaster.

Actress Lorraine Stanley, who plays Karen, said she is "completely shocked" to see the pair of them at her door.

"She didn’t think Mitch would come back, especially after he stole Ted’s money so she’s gobsmacked to see him there," Lorraine said. "There is also a bit of ‘Oh my Mitch is here’ but ultimately she’s shocked."

After initially being in full party mode, Karen turns on them as she accuses them of having an affair.

Things turn from bad to worse when Karen ends up throwing a trifle over Kandice.

Admitting that there is "always tension" between Karen and Kandice, Lorraine revealed: "Oh there is, and especially when it comes to blokes.

"Kandice has always gone after Karen’s boyfriends in the past so I think the tension comes from when they were really young. Also, Kandice is such a snob and Karen really tries her best to keep up appearances but Kandice always manages to find fault."

She also teased daughter Chantelle’s appearance in the BBC soap next year.

Lorraine said: "Oh I can’t wait, I’m so excited to learn more about Chantelle, see what their history is and what Chantelle is up to now.

"So yes, the Taylors are expanding, which is really exciting. Karen hasn’t seen her daughter for so long, so I think there might be a bit of tension there. Chantelle has created a new life for herself so it will be interesting to see how she reacts to Karen and all her siblings."
