EastEnders' Dot, Sonia, the background of the Thames

EastEnders: Sonia’s ‘sexy’ nightie leaves fans asking whether it belongs to Dot!

Did Sonia just dust off the cobwebs from Dot's nightie?

Last night in EastEnders (Thursday, December 7), Sonia planned to spend the night with Reiss ahead of their next IVF appointment.

She’d wanted him to help her with her IVF injection whilst also attempting to do things ‘the natural way’ before the next day’s appointment.

EastEnders viewers have now all made the same comment about Sonia’s white nightie.

EastEnders: Sonia planned to spend the night with Reiss

Last night in Walford, Reiss was worried about his upcoming appointment at the IVF clinic.

Sonia then suggested that they sleep together so that she can try one last time to get pregnant naturally before the appointment.

She also wanted Reiss to help her with her injection, wanting to make the evening special.

Throwing rose petals down the stairs, Sonia walked down in a long, white, nightie in a bid to impress her partner.

However, Reiss then saw her and revealed that he had to rush off as Debbie was in a bad way and might not pull through.

EastEnders fans baffled over Sonia Fowler’s choice of nightwear

After seeing Sonia wear her idea of a ‘sexy’ nightie, fans of the BBC soap are now wondering if the white gown was actually Dot’s.

It certainly looked old-fashioned and was very modest, reminding them of something Dot would wear.

One EastEnders viewer asked: “Why is Sonia wearing Dot’s nightie?”


Another EastEnders fan said: “Sonia is too funny. Why is she wearing that gown?”

A third person added: “Sonia dropping rose petals on the stairs as she’s descending in a vintage, white trousseau was not on my episode bingo card.”

A fourth person replied: “That’s like something Dot probably would have done.”
