Bobby Beale (Eliot Carrington) has told the police that he killed Lucy – and, what’s more, he still knows where the murder weapon is!
While under police questioning following his recent attack on Jane, Bobby tried to tell DI Keeble that he was the one responsible for the death of his sister. But she chose not to believe the 12-year-old’s confession, having already prosecuted Max Branning for the crime.
But it was only when Bobby stated, “I know where the jewellery box is” that Keeble’s ears pricked up. Tonight’s cliffhanger moment then saw Bobby expand on his statement by adding, “The one I used to kill her”.
As for what happens next, viewers will have now have to wait until Thursday to see what action the police will take in the wake of Bobby’s admission and whether the incriminating evidence can be located.
But an already grim situation looks set to be made even worse when Christian and Jane’s mum Linda turn up and share some worrying news about Jane.
As Ian tries to explain why things have gone so wrong for the Beale family, will Christian be able to forgive him?
