EastEnders ‘ Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper) will be leaving Walford shortly after discovering Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) cheated on her with her step-mum Sharon (Letitia Dean) and got her pregnant.
The EastEnders cast member is set to find out the truth around Christmas time, as she and dad Phil (Steve McFadden) discover they have betrayed by their other halves.
Tilly said: “I have loved playing Louise Mitchell over these past few years, and I feel honoured to have been part of such an iconic show,” Tilly said.
“Working with our incredible cast and crew has been a joy and I shall miss my EastEnders family greatly.”
Executive producer Jon Sen said: “Tilly has been an incredible asset to the EastEnders cast and a wonderful company member. Her portrayal of Louise Mitchell over the past years has been a joy to watch.
“We wish her well for in all her future endeavours.”
After hearing the news, fans are worried that the big affair reveal could end in a double death as Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) is also set to leave the soap in the new year.
Although there have been spoiler pictures of Keanu catching a flight, there have also been pictures of him being held at gunpoint by Martin Fowler (James Bye).
Martin is currently in the pocket of the Mitchells, as Ben knows that Martin’s wife Stacey bludgeoned Phil over the head earlier this year.
Will Martin kill Keanu on Phil’s orders as he gets revenge on him for cheating with Sharon?
Meanwhile, fans think that it is likely Louise could meet her maker too, as one fan wrote: “I have a weird feeling that one of Lisa, Keanu, or Louise will be killed off over the winter period. I doubt the show are gonna let all three leave alive.”
Another added: “I was thinking this might tie into the Linda thing. Do you think it’s possible that Linda drink drives again and runs Louise over and she dies?”
A third chipped in: “I feel like Keanu is gonna die this Christmas/New Year.”
Are the pair both going to be killed off?
EastEnders continues tonight at 7.30pm on BBC.
