'EastEnders' Spoiler: Lucy Beale Murdered As Hetti Bywater Is Axed From The Soap

'EastEnders' is set for another murder hunt after Lucy Beale , played by Hetti Bywater, is killed at Easter.

Ian Beale's daughter's death will spark one of the soap's biggest 'whodunnits'.

The BBC's EastEnders blog says: "The huge storyline has been ingeniously plotted so that it isn’t a typical whodunit, but rooted in truth - raw, emotional and gritty."

Viewers will reportedly be left guessing who killed Lucy for the rest of the year and Ian will be left wondering how well he really knew his daughter.

Lucy, who has recently been trying to create her own Alan Sugar-type empire, will leave behind her twin Peter, and half-siblings Bobby and Cindy.

The character, currently played by 19-year-old Hetti but last played by Melissa Suffield, has been part of the show since her birth in 1993.

The blog adds: "Lucy’s death will mark the end of an era and the start of a dark new chapter for the Beale family."

Lucy's death has been plotted since the arrival of Executive Producer, Dominic Treadwell-Collins.

One Walford resident will hold the very dark secret about what really happened the night Lucy died.

Lucy was recently caught in bed with smooth-talking Danny Pennant (Gary Lucy) but she later found out he was up to no good.
