Despite speculation, Senior Executive Producer Kate Oates spoke to Express.co.uk and other media about this scene in particular.
She said: “What I really like about this Christmas is that not only do we play out the stories that we’ve built to, but there’s a lot of history within there as well.
“So for example, you know, Martin story reflects on what happened with Jamie all those Christmases ago.
“They left a guy laying in the road so there’s that still to play out.
“And the resonance for Martin over what happened Jamie will be there too,” she added.
EastEnders returns tomorrow night on BBC One.
