When it comes to dramatic storylines,EastEnders doesn’t do things by halves asits ongoing flash-forward storyline has proved. In a surprising twist in the BBC One soap, back in February viewers were transported 10 months into the future where they saw the aftermath of a very eventful 2023 Christmas.

After a lock-in at the Queen Vic, a flash forward brought viewers to Christmas 2023 where Denise (Diane Parish), Kathy (Gillian Taylforth), Linda (Kellie Bright), Sharon (Letitia Dean), Stacey (Lacey Turner) and Suki (Balvinder Sopal) were left dealing with an unidentified dead body. Ever since, viewers have been trying to work out what exactly happened and who the victim is.

So, as the mystery continues, let’s take a look at all the ‘clues’ surrounding the mystery so far…

Suit of armour

In the back of the flash-forward scene, a suit of armour can be seen behind Stacey -and some fans think it could be a clue. When Ian Beale made a return to the show following his wife Cindy’s “return from the dead” after she’d actually been living in witness protection, the pair appeared to be happy together. However, some viewers think otherwise and one Twitter user wrote: “What if the suit of armour in the flash forward represents… Cindy (AKA Rose Knight) and the body is Ian? It's my back-up theory anyway”.


After Sharon checked the victim’s pulse, a close-up shot showed a very specific design of cufflink on the shirt of the victim. To add even more mystery, the EastEnders Twitter account shared a snap of four boxes of cufflinks alongside the caption: “If you know, you know”.

Furthermore, Brian Conley – who plays Sonia Fowler’s long-lost father Rocky Cotton, also known as Terry Cant – revealed to OK! that the flash forward episode features a cufflink.

Could there be four possible victims?

Sharon’s wedding dress

While it’s unclear why exactly Sharon is wearing a wedding dress,some fans have speculated that it could be a hint at who the victim is. If the occasion did happen to be her big day, it’s possible that she could have rekindled her relationship with Keanu Taylor and that it’s his suited body that’s lying on the floor.

Linda’s busted lip

In the scene, Linda’s lip looks a little worse for wear, suggesting she could’ve possibly got into a tussle. Some viewers have speculated that she could’ve come face to face with Dean Wicks who raped her back in 2014 while at the Queen Vic.

The Champagne bottle

With her secret affair with Ravi Gulati, Denise has had quite the dramatic year. In the flash-forward scene, she can be seen holding a bottle of Champagne in her hand – whether it’s a weapon or just her tipple of choice, it’s unclear.
