‘EastEnders' Live Week: 9 Million Viewers Watch ‘Who Killed Lucy?' Storyline Develop In First #EELive Episode

The Ratings For The 'EastEnders' Live Week Launch Are In...

‘EastEnders’ live week got off to a strong start on Tuesday, as over 9 million viewers saw Peggy Mitchell’s return, and the shock developments in the Lucy Beale murder case.

9.03 million people tuned in to see the show, the highest figure since 2013’s New Year’s Day episode.

The episode included a number of live scenes, and while things appeared to go without a hitch, a number of viewers took to Twitter to air their confusion after Jake Wood delivered the final line of the episode.

Max Branning told his daughter Abi, “She [Lauren] knows you killed Lucy”, but a number of fans thought the actor had said “who” instead of “you”.

Friday’s show will be completely live, but before then, there’s the small matter of finding out who killed Lucy.

The big reveal will take place during Thursday’s hour-long special, which will be followed by a one-off flashback episode.

The action continues tonight (Wednesday 20 February) at 8pm.
