EastEnders Whodunnit: Lauren Odds Slashed Following False Alibi Revelation!

William Hill have slashed the price on Lauren Branning being the killer of Lucy Beale in EastEnders from 14/1 to 7/1 following the revelations regarding her false alibi on the night of the murder. That movement in the odds has seen her move well into contention to be the perpetrator of the crime, making her joint fifth favourite with her Dad, Ian and behind Jane (4/1) and Abi, Denise and Jay (all 6/1).


“There will undoubtedly be more twists and turns in this storyline but with more revelations set to come from Lauren in the coming weeks she could soon find herself favourite,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


EastEnders is the 2/1 second favourite to be the most watched show on Christmas Day with William Hill making last year’s winner, Mrs Brown’s Boys the market leader at 7/4.
