Ever since EastEnders aired its flash forward episode in February, viewers have been wondering what series of events will lead to Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) adorning a wedding dress on Christmas Day.
In recent scenes, EastEnders seemed to confirm that the big day will in fact not just be Sharon modelling bridal gear with a subtle scene that some viewers may have missed.
During Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) and Phil Mitchell’s (Steve McFadden) wedding reception, Sharon made an appearance to show her support for the happy couple on their special day.
Though the bash was interrupted by a power cut, as soon as the lights came back on usual wedding reception activities were able to resume, including the tossing of Kat’s bouquet.
Now, we’re sure everyone is aware of the superstition that whoever catches the bride’s bouquet will be the next person to get married, so imagine our shock when Sharon was the lucky winner.
It’s not difficult to put two and two together, and now we’re more certain than ever that Sharon is set to get married on Christmas day.
But who will her groom be?
Sharon recently split up with Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) over her involvement in helping Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin) to flee the country with Peggy, which leaves us wondering if nuptials with him may be out of the question.
However, Sheanu have been on and off more than the lights in tonight’s episode, so there is every possibility that they could get back together.
All clues so far point to Sharon having a shotgun wedding, given the fact that Sharon’s wedding dress actually belongs to Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylofrth) at this moment in time.
This means that we may not even find out who the groom is until the very episode in which the wedding takes place.
Recent scenes have also seen Sharon and Phil getting on rather well, and given that Phil’s secret one night stand with Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit) is hanging over him like a big, black cloud, his marriage to Kat could still crumble.
Not to mention, the sudden appearance of newcomer Dorian has got us intrigued, and wondering if there may be a spark between him and Sharon.
Who she marries is still anyone’s guess, but tonight’s wedding antics have certainly given us food for thought.
