Another Christmas death? Rumours are unconfirmed ...
One of Albert Square’s darkest characters will exit Walford this Christmas – and it could be in a body bag.
EastEnders bosses will not confirm if twisted Derek Branning will be killed off but rumours are rife the baddie will meet a grizzly end.
The eldest of the Branning clan, he has had a huge impact ever since soap bosses cast Jamie Foreman, 54, in the part last year.
Last week Jamie, inset, was spotted filming on location, with a gang of thugs chasing his character.
