‘EastEnders' Spoiler: Did Billy Mitchell Kill Lucy Beale? Peter Seems To Think So... (PIC)

Peter Beale gets a shock in tonight’s ‘EastEnders’ (Thursday 17 July) when he finds out Billy Mitchell has been keeping a secret related to the Lucy Beale murder case.

The youngster is understandably shocked and angry when he finds out Billy argued with his sister hours before she was murdered, and he becomes immediately suspicious that Billy may be to blame for his sister’s death.

Peter confronts Billy

Billy has had a tough time convincing his own family of his innocence since they discovered his secret so his chat with Peter probably won’t go too well.

There have been a number of shock twists in the murder case lately and despite the fact Jake is set to stand trial for murder, plenty of Walford residents think he might be innocent.

There’s no shortage of other suspects and everyone from Lauren and Max Branning to Peter himself are on the list of potential killers.

Patrick Trueman is set to be at the centre of another twist - though it isn’t related to Lucy’s death - when he is rushed to hospital next week.

Tune in to ‘EastEnders’ on Thursday 17 July to see the action unfold.
