Poker grudge match for EastEnders men
The cards are in the air on BBC One tonight as a group of EastEnders characters play poker.
The game, sadly not branded as the World Series of Walford, sees show villain Derek Branning invites the likes of Alfie and Michael to take to the table, with the atmosphere turning tense when Phil arrives unannounced, uninvited and wanting to take part.
A preview clip of one of the scenes shows Phil bringing his own pack of cards to the six-handed game, with dealer Alfie given the choice of whether to use the deck over the one provided by Derek. In a potentially symbolic move he elects – after brief consideration – to use Phil’s cards.
Those who want to know which player comes out on top – and who haven’t been tempted into reading any online spoilers ahead of time – will have to tune in tonight at 7:30pm to see how it all plays out.
