EastEnders fans predict tragic Christmas death amid star’s ‘departure’

EastEnders fan have predicted a rather tragic end for Jay Brown after actor Jamie Borthwick, who has played the character since 2006, appeared to announce his departure from the soap in a now-deleted Instagram post.

It came after Jamie, 29, hinted at Jay's potential involvement in the upcoming Christmas murder-mystery storyline.

The latest episodes of the soap saw Jay being placed into an induced coma following a car crash, and while viewers have speculated that Jay may survive this incident, he may still be tragically killed off before the end of year.

Earlier this year, the popular BBC soap gave fans a sneak peak at an upcoming Christmas storyline in which characters Denise, Kathy, Linda, Sharon, Stacey and Suki were confronted with a dead body.

And fans have now suggested that Jay could be the mystery dead body after Jamie gave some hints about the upcoming storyline.

Speaking to the Mirror at the Pride of Britain Awards, he revealed: "Well, I know who it is."

When asked if he knew who the victim or killer was, Jamie replied: "Both." However, he remained tight-lipped about the storyline, saying: "I can't say because I'll give it away!"

And fans of the soap were then left in a tizzy on Wednesday night when Jamie, who has been at the heart of some of EastEnders' biggest plots recently with the sad passing of his on-screen wife Lola Pearce Brown, sparked worries he might be exiting the show.

In a now-deleted Instagram story post, Jamie shared a throwback picture of himself and paid tribute to his character, writing: "RIP Jay, gonna miss you lad. We had a laugh didn't we."

In Wednesday's episode, Jay found himself in a terrifying accident after taking drugs and attempting to escape to Margate, leaving his life hanging by a thread.

With Jamie seemingly hinting that Jay could meet his end in the shocking scenes, some soap fans have taken to social media to share their theories, predicting he will survive the crash but die this Christmas.

One fan speculated on social media: "What if Jay isnt dead after the accident and instead theyve just filmed the christmas day scenes and hes the body #EastEnders."

While another suggested: "Imagine the Christmas body is Jay #EastEnders," while another viewer pondered: "EastEnders Christmas death what if it's Jay and the drugs catch up with him?"

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
