Can you work out who the killer is?

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.

A spokeswoman tells the paper: “This is without a doubt the biggest betting event in soap opera history and by the time the killer is revealed more than £10 million could be riding on the outcome.

“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.
