EastEnders fans 'work out' who dies at Christmas after jaw-dropping exit news

EastEnders viewers think an exit being lined up on the BBC soap could reveal the identity of the mystery male character who dies later this year.

Viewers know that on Christmas Day, a male character will be killed off in a possible murder twist. The scene of the crime is The Queen Vic pub, and there are currently six female suspects, The Six, in the frame for being the killer.

Sharon Watts, Suki Panesar, Kathy Beale, Stacey Slater, Denise Fox and Linda Carter are all in the scene, and all of them have either ripped clothes or blood on them. Recent weeks have seen all six characters feature in storylines that have either given them a motive as to wanting someone dead, or that tease the possible victim.

Now, a character who isn't one of the six women is reported to be leaving the BBC soap - and fans are asking if it gives away who dies. Karen Taylor will apparently be written out of the show, while exit details remain under wraps.

Fans are speculating though that her exit could come as a result of a tragic death. Some are wondering if the body shown in a flashforward clip ahead of Christmas Day could be linked to her.

Karen's son Keanu Taylor recently split with Sharon after their engagement. With Sharon set to marry someone, seemingly, in the Christmas episode fans are wondering if Keanu is the groom - and whether he could end up dead.

This theory has now escalated, as fans are wondering if Karen's exit is further proof the body will be Keanu. Could the murder of another of Karen's children leave her fleeing Walford for good?

Taking to Twitter, one viewer said: "Just had a theory. Ravi owes Phil a favour... What if Phil gets Ravi to kill Keanu at Christmas and that's why Karen leaves," as another wrote: "Wonder if Karen leaves in the new year because Keanu is the Christmas body?"

A third fan tweeted: "After #EastEnders Lorraine Stanley being axed, with Karen exiting the Square early next year… the dead man in The Vic could be Keanu." A fourth said: "Karen leaving kinda makes me think Keanu dies and she leaves Walford with the grief obv after losing Chantelle too, sad."

Another tweet read: "I’m actually surprised like they better not kill her off! Though now I’m thinking maybe it’s Keanu that’s the body in the vic and that will be part of Karen’s exit storyline."

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
