Anonymous East End Gamble On EastEnders Killer

William Hill have been caught with their pants down after an incredible gamble on Cora Cross being Lucy Beale’s killer on EastEnders. She was a largely unfancied 50/1 shot just two days ago, however a sizeable gamble in William Hill’s East London shop estate has seen her odds tumble to 4/1 making her the joint second favourite with Jane Beale and just behind Abi Branning who is the 9/4 favourite.

“A lot of the online chatter is predicting that Abi is the killer but all the money has been from anonymous London punters lumping as much as they can on Cora,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “If money talks, then Cora is the killer!”
