Jennie McAlpine - who plays Fiz Brown - told The Daily Star: "I've read the script for Christmas Eve.

"It's quite dramatic. I'm not sure if I'll be getting any turkey this year. Fiz is going to be quite busy!"

The 35-year-old added: "I can't say if anyone dies. If I told someone that, I'd have to kill them!"

Meanwhile, Jenny Bradley actress Sally Matthews, teased the December episodes were "beyond dramatic".

She said: "What I can say is it's beyond dramatic. It's big and edge-of-your-seat stuff. It's not just one story either. There are several big stories happening.

"We usually have feel good Christmas episodes. And this year it certainly starts off that way.

"People will want to tune in for it on Christmas Day. My advice is not to have too much turkey and eggnog so you'll still be awake enough to watch it!"
