There was plenty of drama in final live week show, as the Beale family discovered what really happened to Lucy.

The show included one final twist, as Jane admitted that Bobby does not know he killed his sister.

While Cindy and Ian agreed to protect the 11-year-old, Peter didn’t feel the same, and stormed out of the family home.

Emotions were on high throughout the episode, and the cast - especially child actors Elliot Carrington and Mimi Spencer - have been praised for their live acting skills by fans on Twitter.

Elsewhere in the Square, the Carters faced further drama as Dean Wicks went missing.
