EastEnders spoilers follow.
The cast of EastEnders have stunned on the red carpet at the 2023 National Television Awards with an homage to this year’s big Christmas storyline.
The actresses at the center of this year’s flashforward whodunit — Letitia Dean, Diane Parish, Gillian Taylforth, Lacey Turner, Balvinder Sopal and Kellie Bright — posed together on the red carpet at the O2 Arena on Tuesday night (September 5) wearing the same colours from their now-iconic promo shoot.
This group, known as ‘The Six’, will be the ones at the centre of a potential murder mystery when they’re all present for the discovery of a dead body in the Vic this Christmas.

Not to be outdone, several of the male cast members wore matching cufflinks on the NTAs red carpet to set some buzz about who might become the mysterious victim.
As fans will remember, the unknown male corpse was shown in a flashforward scene wearing a pair of distinctive cufflinks that have been passed around the Square throughout this year.
The cufflinks originally belonged to Nish Panesar, only for him to lose them to Rocky Cotton in a poker game. Rocky didn’t particularly care for the cuffs so he handed them off to Jack Branning.
However, viewers previously suspected that they’d seen Phil Mitchell wearing the cufflinks as well, so there continues to be a lot of theories about exactly who will end up dead.

EastEnders played up the mystery on its social media on Tuesday night by sharing photos of cast members Shane Richie, Adam Woodyatt and Perry Fenwick all wearing similar cufflinks.
Kellie Bright recently hinted that EastEnders viewers should expect more teasers about the mystery as the holiday season gets closer.
EastEnders airs on Mondays – Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
