Soap News: The Queen has voiced her concerns over Sharon’s current storyline in Eastenders and has contacted the BBC to express her doubts about the direction of future episodes.

The character of Sharon, who returned to the square last month, is set to become engaged to Phil Mitchell later this autumn. It is said Her Majesty contacted the BBC after reading about this plot twist in the Daily Star, in order to voice her concerns that the storyline was ‘unrealistic’ and ‘lazy’.

“The Queen is worried that this is leading up to a typically explosive and incredibly depressing Christmas day episode of Eastenders,” said a spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace.

“Just for a change Her Majesty would like to see the residents of Albert Square having a nice time at Christmas – not getting divorced, going mad, or killing each other.”

It is not the first time the Queen has tried to influence British TV drama – last year she insisted on rewriting large parts of the script for the final episode of the sixth series of Doctor Who, “The Wedding of River Song”, as she felt it didn’t provide enough of an ‘emotional rollercoaster’.
