EastEnders bosses promised a disaster this week and they certainly delivered as a bus crashed through the market sending residents and shoppers running for their lives.
Soap fans watched as the driver of the bus, which was carrying local school kids as well as locals including Denise Fox, suffered a suspected heart attack.
Denise sensed something was wrong and tried to help but she was accidentally knocked aside as the driver collapsed and hit the accelerator at the same time.
The action unfolded just as Martin Fowler was hosting a market meeting with the other stall holders to fight against plans to move them to another site.
They all screamed in horror as the bus came speeding around the corner, past the Queen Vic and crashed into the bridge.
While bosses didn’t want any details about the disaster week to be revealed before tonight’s episode, a leaked aerial shot of the soap’s set in Elstree showed the aftermath of the crash.
Fans will have to tune in to see whether anyone was killed in the accident and if anything else happens to make matters worse…
