Several storylines come to a head in dramatic fashion as everyone celebrates, with Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) due to give birth at the end.

An EastEnders spokesperson told Metro.co.uk said: "As we journey out of Walford to the banks of the Thames, the week’s episodes will be set over 24 hours, with each episode telling the day’s events from a different perspective.

"As the party sets sail, tensions escalate for one family, causing an incident onboard and leading to disastrous consequences.

"Following their win in the ‘Best Pub’ competition, Mick, Linda, The Queen Vic and its punters will celebrate in style with a boat party on the Thames."
