If you’re preparing yourself for a slice of Walford life tonight, then we’re afraid we’ve got some bad news, as EastEnders is not on tonight.

The BBC One soap is missing from the schedules.

It’s absence comes after rather intense episode last night that saw serial killer Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet) accept his fate, as he prepared for another stint in prison after a heart-to-heart with daughter Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams).

The other big takeaway from last night’s edition of the serial drama, was that Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal) displayed the first real hint of emotion since her arrival in the Square, after a heated showdown with Peter Beale (Dayle Hudson).

However, if you’ve been looking forward to seeing what happens next, then, as noted earlier, you’ll have to wait until next week, as there is no new episode of the soap tonight.

But just why is EastEnders not on?

When is EastEnders back on?

The episode in question will be something of a new eras, as Mick and Linda are back in the Queen Vic!

However, Mick is left upset when he receives a visit from the police, who inform him that abuser Katy Lewis (Simone Lahbib) has been arrested.

What’s more, the police are intending on appealing for more survivors.
