Who Killed Lucy Beale? Jane Beale is the bookies’ prime suspect

| 24.12.2014

Drawing comparisons between Eastenders and fairytales from Hans Christian Anderson, Disney and the like may not be obvious but the similarities are there.

More than one beauty resides in Walford and there have been plenty of beasts over the years. Billy may be taller than the average dwarf but he’s certainly dopey and Phil Mitchell has long viewed the Square as his kingdom.

However, it looks as though the evil stepmother storyline in the route the soap is set to explore next with Jane Beale now the most likely killer of Lucy Beale, according to the betting.

Jane has a butter-wouldn’t-melt vibe about her but her affair with Grant behind Ian’s back and later with Ian behind Masood’s back shows she has a callous side.

She was also quick to dissuade Ian from handing Lucy’s phone and purse into police and then there’s the hiding of the phone under the floorboards!

These ominous pointers have led to a flurry of bets and with punters acting on a supposed script leak the price on Jane to be revealed as the killer has come crashing down.

Ian’s ex-wife had a testing relationship with Lucy at the best of times but is she capable of murder? She has Nick Cotton (5/1), Jay Brown (5/1) and Lauren Branning (5/1) for company at the head of the market but the prices show her to be the number one suspect!

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
