Nish Panesar dead, Keanu Taylor is surprise murder victim – whats happened today

EastEnders has killed off Nish Panesar in a shocking Christmas twist.

BBC soap fans across the country have tuned in tonight to see who is unmasked as the Christmas killer, and who is found dead on the floor of the Queen Vic. Soap boss Chris Clenshaw and his team had been working on this plot for months, which began when a special flash-forward scene foreshadowed a shocking Christmas death.

In February, the six women – Denise (Diane Parish), Kathy (Gillian Taylforth), Linda (Kellie Bright), Sharon (Letitia Dean), Stacey (Lacey Turner) and Suki (Balvinder Sopal) – found themselves surrounding a dead body in the Queen Vic on Christmas Day.

At that point, all we knew was that the six had something to do with the death, and that it was Sharon’s wedding day, since she was wearing a wedding dress. Over the past eight months we have seen the ups and downs of the women of Walford, giving them a motive to kill one or more of the men, and now death has rocked the Square.

As fans tuned into tonight’s special, they watched as secrets and truths were revealed to many of those at the Square. Sharon and Keanu were preparing for their big wedding day alongside Zack and Martin, who were also carrying twins. Sharon has been keeping a secret about the true identity of the father of her son Albie and it all came to light tonight.

As Sharon walked down the aisle to marry Keanu, Phil arrived to tell her that Keanu was behind the kidnapping. Horrified and having discovered the truth, Sharon called off the wedding, while Keanu tried to apologize for what she had done. Furious, Sharon told Keanu that he was not Albie’s father and that he was Phil in her place, but she didn’t know he was listening.

Storming out, Sharon and Linda made a quick exit back to the Vic alongside Denise and Kathy, who were having difficulties with their husbands, Jack Branning and Rocky Cotton.
