Don't tell anyone but ...
NICE kennel girl turned slapper Maria discovers she's pregnant in Corrie next month - only problem is the father is John, Toyah's new bloke. Quite how she can be so sure is anyone's guess, the amount she's been at it of late.
Anyway, when John finds out he offers to pay for the abortion. Poor Toyah, meanwhile, is oblivious to the identity of the father, but knowing Fiz she won't be able to keep her gob shut about this for much longer.
WHAT do you get the soap star who has everything? This year Hannah Waterman (bonkers Laura Beale) is hoping for a diamond or a glam tiara from boyfriend Ricky Groves. But she says nothing compares to being a kid at Christmas:
"When I was very young I remember my mum and dad falling upstairs with armfuls of presents, pretending to be Father Christmas and Rudolph. I suspect they'd been on the sherry.
"And last Christmas my sister's boyfriend bought us a family fart machine - it was hilarious and provided hours of entertainment."
THERE has been plenty of seasonal good tidings for East-Enders this month.
First of all, Kacey Ainsworth has been voted the top TV character of 2002 by OK magazine, with Alex Ferns (dead Trevor), following with an award for the best TV performance.
Meanwhile, Queen Vic legends Den and Angie Watts have been voted top of the soap plots in a recent poll.
The fiery couple's 1986 Christmas Day clash was voted the best festive storyline ever. Phil and Mel's Crimbo kiss came second.
LAST week the cast of The Bill performed at a sold-out carol concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London, in aid of the Leukaemia Trust.
Choirmistress was Trudie Goodwin (Sergeant June Ackland) - a tough job, but someone's got to do it.
Also singing were actors from Bad Girls and London's Burning.
Says Trudie: "Initially we were only asked to present a carol but we wanted to sing one.
"It grew from there and built up a bit of rivalry from other celebrities, particularly the cast of London's Burning."
EX-EASTENDER Martine McClutchbag is rumoured to be quitting the UK and moving to Los Angeles after Christmas.
Quite frankly it's no wonder she wants to run away and hide after her awful last album and TV special.
Surely that was the most cringe-making show of the year on the box?
