EastEnders cast and crew filmed on location for the funeral of Lucy Beale yesterday and new pictures have been released from the episode which airs next month.
The pictures show Lucy’s father Ian (Adam Woodyatt), twin brother Peter (Ben Hardy), half-siblings Cindy (Mimi Keene) and Bobby (Rory Stroud) and uncle Christian (John Partridge) walking solemnly side by side.
Partridge has reprised his role after a year away from the soap as Christian returns to pay his respects and comfort his sister Jane (Laurie Brett).
Lucy’s demise was first announced by the BBC in February who stated that the storyline won’t play out as ‘typical whodunit’ and instead will be rooted in a ‘raw and emotional’ reality.
Ian will start to question how well he really knew his daughter, as secrets spill out after her death.
One Walford resident in particular will have a very dark secret about what really happened the night Lucy died – and viewers will be left guessing for the rest of the year… What killed Lucy Beale?
Behind the scenes pictures show Masood Ahmed (Nitin Ganatra), Shabnam Masood (Rakhee Thakrar), and Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa) also present at the filming yesterday.
EastEnders airs Monday (8pm), Tuesday (7.30pm), Thursday (7.30pm) and Friday (8pm) on BBC One.
