EastEnders spoilers: Just who killed Lucy Beale?

Who is Lucy Beale's killer?

As EastEnders' dramatic story line continues, the question of just who did kill Lucy Beale comes a step closer to being answered.

Show bosses are not set to unveil the killer for more than a month yet with a special live episode planned for February.

But Abi Branning is the most popular bet with punters making her the red-hot favourite to be revealed as Walford's killer on the loose, according to the latest odds from Ladbrokes.

With just weeks to go until the 30th anniversary episode, wagers on the whodunit are going through the roof, with £10,000 worth of bets being placed by Eastenders punters in the last week alone.

And it's Abi who finds herself as the lead culprit and chalked up as the 7/2 favourite with the bookies, however she's followed closely by Jane who's given odds of 9/2.

It's a 7/1 chance Ian deals the final blow to daughter Lucy in scenes that would send shockwaves through East London.

The car crash in the square on New Year's Day may have left one dead and Ronnie fighting for her life, but as a 20/1 outsider it appears the new Mrs Cotton has one less thing to worry about right now.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "This is quickly becoming the most popular whodunit of all time, and Eastenders fans are convinced they've got it sussed and Abi's the killer."
