The extra scenes will air exclusively on the red button and the show's official website from today, further exploring the relationships between the characters at the heart of the Christmas drama.
Later this week, viewers will see Walford favourite Stacey Branning (Lacey Turner) bow out from EastEnders after a shocking announcement in the Queen Vic forces her to make a life-changing decision.
Stacey's exit storyline will take centre stage on the soap over the Christmas period as her ongoing love triangle plot with Ryan and Janine Malloy (Neil McDermott and Charlie Brooks) reaches a climax.
Show bosses have confirmed that the extra red button scenes will feature "revelations and admissions" from Stacey, Janine, Ryan, Max and Lauren, providing an added insight into their thoughts and feelings as Christmas Day approaches.
The special scenes will be made available on the red button and online directly after the EastEnders episodes which air tonight, on Thursday and on Friday.
