EastEnders slapped with deathly Mother's Day?
'EastEnders' is set to be rocked with a shocking death next month.
Bosses have teased Mother's Day (06.03.16) will be one to remember on Albert Square this year as bossy boots Claudette Hubbard (Ellen Thomas) and her son Vincent (Richard Blackwood) get caught up in a vicious blackmail plot involving deceitful conman Gavin Sullivan (Paul Nicholas).
A show insider told the RadioTimes.com: "Things take a sinister turn, changing the Hubbard family forever."
Producers are remaining tight-lipped on the outcome of the storyline but have hinted someone might not make it out alive.
Claudette lands herself in trouble when she attempts to get rid of bad boy Gavin for good after he makes some outrageous demands in order to keep her dirty little secret - still a mystery to viewers - away from the ears of her family.
But things soon get out of hand when the hunky bar owner gets caught up in the potentially life-threatening commotion after he learns his mother has been trying to steal money off him in the hope of bribing Gavin to flee Walford for good with cash.
Meanwhile, it seems the BBC One soap will be filled with plenty of sorrow this year as Dame Barbara Windsor - who plays matriarch Peggy Mitchell - is set to bow out of the programme for good when her alter-ego dies from cancer.
