EastEnders fans were baffled when they spotted Mel Owen had not yet taken down her Christmas decorations.
Mel (Tamzin Outhwaite) had a traumatic time over the festive season, covering up the murder of Ray Kelly after he was killed by her son Hunter.
But people watching the BBC soap on Monday clearly did not think the drama excused her from taking down her tree and boxing up her baubles.
“Why’s Mels Christmas Tree still up?” asked one person on Twitter, while another said: “That’s just asking for bad luck!!”
Why the hell has Mel still got her Christmas Tree up?? That's just asking for bad luck!! #EastEnders— Rich (@richyj1504) January 28, 2019
“#EastEnders I know it’s been eventful what with the wedding and Hunter killing Ray, but Christmas decorations and it’s nearly February?” said another person.

“They’ve still got their Xmas decorations up? It’s almost friggin February!” posted one fan, who then joked: “Mind you after all that shooting/killing/burying who’s gonna argue with them!”
