Update: BBC deny Bradley storyline
The Sun’s claim that Bradley Branning is to commit suicide has today been refuted by the BBC.
EastEnders bosses this morning refuted rumours that one of the show’s much-loved characters is to commit suicide during the soap’s live 25th anniversary episode.
A tabloid newspaper today claimed that Bradley Branning - played by 22-year-old Charlie Clements - will stun the residents of Walford by leaping off a building and plummeting to his death in "one of the most heart-breaking soap goodbyes ever".
However, a spokesperson for the soap this morning told DS: "We will not comment on Bradley’s exit storyline other than to say he does not commit suicide."
Back in November, Clements announced his decision to quit EastEnders after nearly four years in the role of Bradley.
At the time, executive producer Diederick Santer said: "I can promise a big exit for the character."
The BBC soap’s live 25th anniversary episode will air on Friday, February 19 and feature the ’Who Killed Archie?’ reveal.
