EastEnders: Records Tumble As William Hill Set to Take Over 100,000 Bets On Who Killed Lucy

Bookmakers William Hill can report a significant gamble on Abi Branning to be Lucy Beale’s killer after her father suggested that it was her who committed the crime. Her odds tumbled to 7/2, however, just as quickly as the gamble started, it subsided and her price drifted back out to 6/1. £2,000 was wagered in the ten minute period alone after the show finished.


“About five minutes before the end of the episode and for about 10 minutes after, it was one way traffic for Abi yet the money quickly dried up as people assumed that the reveal was too soon with two live episodes still to go,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We are still none the wiser.”
