EastEnders' Branning family are seen in sombre moods in new pictures showing the aftermath of the soap's Christmas death.
As show bosses confirmed in early November, Derek is killed off over the festive period, although the exact details of how he dies are still being kept top secret.
The latest EastEnders pictures show the Brannings come together to pay their respects to Derek (Jamie Foreman) by laying flowers on the morning after his passing.
While most of the family appear quiet and reflective, Jack and Max are seen arguing with Joey.
Will Derek's demise unite the Brannings after a turbulent Christmas, or could it tear them further apart?
