EastEnders‘ Lee Carter (Danny-Boy Hatchard) is asked to provide a DNA sample as the police continue their investigation into the death of Lucy Beale.
New pictures have been released from tomorrow’s (25 April) episode that show D.S Bryant (Glen Wallace) taking a swab of DNA from the Walford newcomer, after his recent involvement with Lucy comes to light. Lee is also asked for the clothes he was wearing on the night of Lucy’s death.
Meanwhile, Lee’s sister Nancy (Maddy Hill) isn’t satisfied when Lee claims that he spent the entire duration of the fateful night at Ronnie and Roxy’s housewarming party, believing this to be untrue.
The Lucy story has so far proven a hit with viewers with Tuesday’s episode drawing the soap’s biggest audience of the year so far.
An average of 8.4 million viewers (37.8%) tuned in to see the Beale family struggle to take in the news of Lucy’s death.
