In recent weeks, Eve has embarked on a steamy affair with businessman Carl King (Tom Lister), who is already in a relationship with feisty Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter).
Speaking on Lorraine earlier today, the actress confirmed that fans can expect the storyline to reach a climax at Christmas.
Shaw commented: "There's a big lead-up, and it will mean that Eve does get her comeuppance. I think it's about time as well, because she's been getting away with a little bit too much since she's joined.
"I think it's time that she gets a little bit of a taste of her own medicine, so that will be a big lead-up to Christmas Day. It's going to be a slow-burner."
She added: "But it's great to see these little things that happen along the way - she doesn't quite know why they're happening and at Christmas Day she realises why they happen!"
Shaw has previously confessed that she is "really excited" over the future of the storyline.
