Leading up to the highly-anticipated revelation on Christmas Day in EastEnders, BBC Sounds has collaborated with the key figures at the centre of the storyline—the matriarchs of Walford. Together, they’ve curated six exclusive playlists featuring songs that hold significance for each character.

This unique box set of TV Soundtracks showcases a 30-minute mix of six chosen songs by each character, available exclusively on BBC Sounds. From Sharon’s wedding party playlist to Linda’s karaoke favourites, the episodes provide an exclusive glimpse into the lives of these women.

Narrated in character and set in real-time within their storylines, Sharon, Suki, Denise, Kathy, Linda, and Stacey share their favorite tracks along with their reflections on love, family, and, notably, men.
