First look at Ian Beale's new EEL shop as EastEnders set is transformed into Christmas winter wonderland | The Sun

EASTENDERS has been turned into a winter wonderland as it films its explosive Christmas scenes including the culmination of the hotly-anticipated The Six plot.

New pictures show that Albert Square has truly been made over to celebrate the holidays in full swing.

But there is also another surprise nestled within the iconic Walford set – Ian Beale's brand new business.

Paying homage to the East End and the delicacy of jellied eels, Ian appears to be operating a new EEL shop called 'Beale's Eels'.

Albert Square's garden looked perfectly preened as it adorned by an abundance of classic fairy lights in order to make it sparkle well into the night.

Taking centre stage is the iconic EastEnders Christmas tree, which once again takes pride of place on the set of the BBC soap.

Two large nutcrackers also guard the entrance to the pub which has been recently taken over by show newcomer George Knight.

During a flash forward episode in February, the show's heavily promoted 'The Six' storyline kickstarted which saw six fierce Walford women all implicated in a mystery death.

In the scene, set in the Queen Vic on Christmas Day, Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) was wearing a wedding dress as a man’s dead body lay on the ground.

Also present were Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Denise Branning (Diane Parish), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal) and Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth).

Viewers have been awash with theories of who the body could be.

Theo Hawthorne, Martin Fowler, Rocky Cotton and even Dean Wicks have seen their names thrown in the ring to be bumped off this year.

Just this week, eagle-eyed fans speculated that villain Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara) could be the one to meet his end.

During new scenes on the soap, viewers claim that the way Ravi spoke to Denise could be foreshadowing his death.

The hunky bad boy told the Walford mainstay "I swear on my life, to my last breath," when threatening to ruin her life.
