'EastEnders' stars kept in dark
09:30 05 October 2005
'EastEnders' stars will film several different endings for their Christmas episodes - so even they don't know what's going to happen.
The soap's bosses are desperately trying to keep the festive storylines secret, so they will shoot a number of different outcomes - including one where Kat (Jessie Wallace) and Alfie (Shane Richie) get back together before they leave Albert Square, and another where they split.
Cast and crew will also be given censored scripts, so they only know what's going on in the scenes they are working on.
A BBC1 spokesman confirmed to Britain's The Sun newspaper that "happy and sad endings" will be filmed for the Christmas Day double episode and the New Year show, saying: "We will make up our mind which versions to show at the last minute."
Another storyline being kept top secret is the relationship between newlyweds Dennis and Sharon.
Heartthrob actor Nigel Harman, who plays Dennis, is leaving the show, while Letitia Dean, who plays Sharon, is taking a break - so, until Christmas, viewers will be kept guessing whether they have a happy or sad ending.
