‘EastEnders’ have had the nation talking with the ongoing ‘Who killed Lucy Beale?’ drama, and it turns out TV fans have also been digging deep and betting on the storyline.
Bookmakers are predicting that even more soap fans will flock to the bookies to have a go at guessing whodunit, with the hope of raking in the some cash.
Corals have already taken £1 million in bets, reports the Mirror, and they’re predicting that a further £1.5 million will be laid out ahead of the big reveal next Thursday.
“We’ve already taken thousands of bets on this and are still none the wiser as to who actually killed Lucy Beale.
"Hopefully that will remain the case right up until their identity is made public.”
The Lucy Beale murder mystery storyline has been ongoing for 10 months, and the killer’s reveal will come in the middle of live week, which marks the show’s 30th anniversary.
There will also be a second murder case, when the body of one of Walford’s most famous baddies is found dead in the middle of the Square.
