Lucy Beale's murderer to be revealed in flashback EastEnders
Lucy Beale's murderer is to be revealed in a special flashback episode of 'EastEnders' during the 30th anniversary week of live shows
Lucy Beale's murderer will be revealed in a special flashback episode of 'EastEnders'.
The blonde beauty, played by actress Hetti Bywater, was brutally murdered last year and her killer is set to be unveiled during the BBC One soap's 30th anniversary week of live episodes in February.
Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins said: "When we first created the Who Killed Lucy Beale storyline, we knew that we had to flash back to the night that she died on screen.
"So much happened on Good Friday 2014 after viewers saw Lucy leave her home and walk off into the night - and this Flashback episode will fill in the pieces for the rest of that night, before she was killed."
The episode will also see the return of former cast members - including Hetti, Jamie Lomas (Jake Stone) and Tanya Franks (Rainie Cross) - as viewers are presented with new twists in old storylines and secrets from the past year.
Hetti said of reprising the role of Lucy: "It's great to be part of the conclusion and find out what really happened the night Lucy Beale died..."
Jamie also commented on being involved in the flashback episode, saying: "It was always part of the plan between Dominic and myself that I would come back for this special episode that will fill the blanks in for the viewers."
Meanwhile, Tanya - who plays prostitute Rainie in the popular drama - has teased viewers about whether or not Lucy's father Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) was really with her on the night of his daughter's death.
She shared: "It's fab to be back celebrating the 30th anniversary of 'EastEnders'. Where have the last three decades gone?! So, if you want to find out if Rainie was really with Ian Beale on the night Lucy Beale died, then all will be revealed!"
