Don Gilet: 'EastEnders will get darker'
Don Gilet has revealed that EastEnders fans can expect the soap to have a "dark" tone in the months ahead.

In tonight's episode of the Walford-based drama, viewers will see the actor's character Lucas Johnson attempting to cover up his involvement in the death of his wife Trina (Sharon Duncan-Brewster).

Reflecting on the plot twist, Gilet told Soaplife: "When he first appeared someone wrote in saying he was a good character, but somewhere down the line something was going to come unstuck.

"We've always known there was more to this do-gooder than meets the eye. Things are going to get a lot darker in the build-up to Christmas."

Asked how sinister the situation will become, he replied: "It's going to get very dark and I hope I can pull it off, scare people and do panto at Christmas."

Gilet made his debut on the show in April last year.
