EastEnders airs surprise Cindy Williams exit scenes

But Cindy still had one final surprise in store for her nearest and dearest...

EastEnders has confirmed that Mimi Keene has now left the BBC1 soap following her character Cindy Williams’s decision to leave for Germany with Liam Butcher.


Following the broadcast of Monday’s episode, executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins took to Twitter to sing the praises of both Keene and her co-star James Forde, whose departure was announced back in April.

Danny Dyer, who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter, added: 

Despite exiting Albert Square, troublesome Cindy still managed to find time for a final bit of devilry when she sent a video message to Bobby, telling him that he was the one who killed Lucy.

But it was Sharon who was the first to play the video file, leaving viewers wondering what her next move would be. You can see the cliffhanger below.

And beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on EastEnders.
