Huge EXIT drama for THIS EastEnders favourite after shock brush with death

There's drama heading for EastEnders next week when Keegan Baker collapses after taking drugs that he got from Tiffany Butcher...

EastEnders’ Tiffany Butcher makes the shocking decision to leave Walford next week after Keegan Baker suddenly collapses after taking drugs.

Keegan has been struggling to cope with the tragic death of his best friend Shakil Kazemi since he was caught up in a knife attack and killed last year.

EastEnders fans have seen the teenager turn to drugs in recent months in an attempt to numb the pain of losing his friend… but next week sees a sinister twist in the storyline when he dramatically collapses.

Evie pressurises Tiffany

Tiffany has been under pressure from Evie for months

After a fight with his estranged dad Mitch Baker, Keegan goes to Tiffany looking for his next fix.

But despite the fact she refuses to give him drugs, Keegan later sees Tiffany again and forcefully takes them from her.

But before Tiffany can do anything to stop Keegan, he suddenly collapses and Tiffany panics that something awful is going to happen.

The following day Keegan is questioned by a fuming Karen and she is stunned when Bailey reveales that her half brother got the drugs from Tiffany.

Karen storms round to see Whitney, who is shocked by the claims that Tiffany is caught up in something so dodgy… and while she believes Tiff’s protest that she is innocent at first, the teenager’s lies start to unravel when the police arrive to question her.

Tiffany announces she’s moving back home with Bianca

Realising that she has got some explaining to do, Tiffany braces herself as Whitney sits her down and tries to talk about what has been going on.

But instead of getting Tiff to open up, Whitney inadvertently pushes her back towards Evie’s gang, leaving Tiff more vulnerable than ever.

After spending all night partying with Evie, Tiffany isn’t prepared for Whiteny’s wrath when she gets home the next day.

Realising that she has gone too far this time, Tiffany agrees when Whitney suggests that she goes home to live with Bianca.

But is this really the last we have seen of the troubled teen?

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
