It is reported that an upcoming fire in EastEnders will leave at least one character with life-threatening injuries - and the blaze will be started deliberately.

Daily Star Sunday reports that the fire will ravage the Slaters' home, with Kat (Jessie Wallace), Alfie (Shane Richie) and their twins among those affected.

It is reported that the fire scenes have already been filmed.

They are due to be screened on BBC One and RTÉ One in September.
