    Fans of EastEnders believe they have worked out how beloved character will leave the BBC soap.

    Ricky Cotton is set to be taking off from the Square, after actor Brian Conley confirmed he would be leaving the soap after nearly three years.

    Conley had fans fearing he would not be returning to Walford in the future as he was figured to die in tragic scenes.

    But the actor hit back at allegations he had left the soap due to a falling out with the soap's bosses, as he had hinted to how he will leave the Square in the coming weeks.

    No specific details have been revealed, but eagle-eyed fans have come up with dark theories as to why he could leave his newly wed wife Kathy Beale.

    Some fans believe there could be something more malicious in store for Ricky, after scenes were aired where Ricky's ex-wife Jo Cotton pressed him for money.

    One potential theory is that former lovers Ricky and Jo could be working together to scam Kathy of her money.

    But a more evil storyline being investigated would be that Jo and Ricky could be involved in an upcoming fire to Kathy's café.

    Some soap superfans think Rocky could intentionally cause the blaze and end up having to flee or be sent to jail.

    Viewers have been taking to Twitter to debate whether Ricky's intentions were genuine and how could Jo lead to him leaving the soap.

    One user tweeted: "With Brian Conley teasing a 'Big exit' for Rocky – it looks likely he'll get framed for the Cafe fire which kills Karen who we know is also leaving. With the exit being permanent I can see Rocky going to prison for murder or arson".

    Whilst a second fan wondered whether it would be "too farfetched to consider that Rocky will run off with Jo and the rest of Kathy's money now we know he's leaving?"

    A third said: "I wonder if Rocky could start the Café fire – killing Karen and sending him to prison which could be his exit".
