EastEnders' Christmas episode will be 'jaw-dropping & explosive' as huge secret is exposed, reveals Milly Zero

EASTENDERS star Milly Zero has teased that the Christmas episode will be "jaw-dropping and explosive" as a huge secret rips through the square.

Milly – who plays Dotty Cotton on the BBC One soap – has teamed up with con man Rocky to scam Sonia out of the money Dot gave her control of.

The schemer – who is played by actor Brian Conley in the BBC soap – revealed he is a cousin of the late Nasty Nick and has been working with Dotty all along.

The upcoming festive scenes will see Rocky's panic as his bombshell secret is on the verge of being exposed.

"Christmas Day is going to be explosive! Nothing goes to plan – but you would expect nothing less from an EastEnders Christmas," Milly told Inside Soap.

"It's an amazing jaw-dropping, it's a proper cliffhanger moment."

Milly, 22, joined the cast as Dot Branning's granddaughter in 2019, replacing Molly Conlin who had previously played the role as a child.

The actress said she is amazed that people sometimes confuse her onscreen character's personality with her in real life.

"Dotty can be quite a nasty character and people get confused and think I am the same," she told The Sun's TV Mag.

"I was at a hospital appointment and the nurses recognised me. Then all of a sudden the whole waiting room started recognising me.

"Everyone crowded round me and was like, you seem a lot nicer in real life,
why are you not being horrible?

"The nurses were amazed that I was polite! It’s surreal how people
get real life and EastEnders confused!"

Earlier this year, Dotty was forced to make a difficult decision about her alcoholic mum Sandy arrived in Walford.

Sandy was last seen on the Square 11 years ago before she shocked her daughter, who believed she’d died in a car crash, by turning up out of the blue.

Rocky has been pretending to be Sonia Fowler's long lost dad – but in fact he is Dotty's uncle Tom.

Rocky has developed a relationship with Sonia and the residents of Walford – one that Sandy could easily sabotage by knowing his identity.

And as time goes on, Dotty and Rocky's secret looks closer and closer to being exposed.
