Rakhee Thakrar has revealed the cast of 'EastEnders' are still in the dark about who killed Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater) as the scripts they've been rehearsing from are "mostly censored"

Rakhee Thakrar claims the scripts for EastEnders' 30th anniversary are "mostly censored".

The 30-year-old actress, who plays Shabnam Masood on the BBC One soap, has revealed that although the cast have been rehearsing for their upcoming live and semi-live episodes, the majority of the scripts are still "censored" so as to not give away who killed Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater).

Quizzed on whether she and co-star Davood Ghadami (Kush) are involved in the live hour-long episode, she said: "We did a rehearsal the other day. It's like a play. It's really tight but very well organised.

"No one knows anything, every script we get is mostly censored."

Rakhee also opened up about her current storyline, which saw her break down in tears before seducing Davood's character earlier this week.

Speaking to Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard on ITV's 'Good Morning Britain', Davood said: "It was quite nice that it wasn't him going for her because that's the way that it looked like it was going, because he'd done a lot of the hard work, and then suddenly [she jumps on him]."

Rakhee added: "Yeah and it's so out of character, which is really good. It's nice to shock the audience like that."

Addressing the secret Shabnam's been keeping from everyone, Davood revealed viewers will find out long before Kush, who won't know "for some time".
