Bradley Branning could be set to kill himself in EastEnders when he becomes a suspect for Archie’s murder, according to reports.
The Sun claims that he will jump from a building in the Square in dramatic scenes and that his funeral has already been filmed.
An insider told the paper: “They have pulled out all the stops and it’s a real tear-jerker.
“By killing a main character with a sympathetic suicide, the writers are breaking one of the last taboos.
“There have been a few soap suicides of minor characters over the years, but never of someone so central and so well-loved by viewers.”
The identity of the person who murdered Archie will be revealed to soap fans in the special live episode on February 19.
