EastEnders fans disgusted as Sonia secretly steals Dot’s life savings


EastEnders viewers were left utterly disgusted this evening after Sonia Fowler was exposed as the thief who had stolen Dot Branning’s lifesavings.

Throughout the Christmas Day flashback episode, Dot’s granddaughter Dottie tried to work out who had taken Dot’s money.

Initially she accused Martin of taking the money after he failed to show up, before suggesting that Stuart and Rainie had done it.

But viewers noticed that something was awry when Sonia suggested that she phone Dot’s bank and contact the fraud team.

As all of the family gathered, Sonia appeared to confirm that it was a scammer who had taken the money.

Yet the camera later panned down to show that she had taken the phone line out of the wall and that she wasn’t actually talking to anyone.

And their fears were confirmed as Dot left, after telling Sonia that she trusted her… only for the nurse to open her laptop, showing her bank balance.

A guilt-ridden Sonia then deleted her Internet history, confirming that she was wiping away the evidence of what she had done.

And fans couldn’t believe what they were watching.
