EastEnders ended on a bit of a cliffhanger on Monday night with Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) seemingly on the verge of killing his dad Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).
The episode ended with him reaching to tamper with Phil’s breathing equipment as he lay unconscious in hospital, having been attacked at the Arches by Stacey Fowler (Lacey Turner).
Things are set to ramp up a notch on Tuesday as spoilers have revealed that he’s caught red-handed by Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) – leading to a dramatic confrontation between the pair.
It’s not clear whether Ben will follow through with his murderous plans or not – but of course it wouldn’t be the first time he’d killed someone, having previously killed Walford resident Heather Trott (Cheryl Fergison) in 2012.
Just who was Heather and how exactly did she die? Here’s what you need to know…
Who was Heather Trott in EastEnders?
Heather was introduced as a guest character in 2007, but gradually became a regular – and quickly became known for her headbands, fondness for karaoke and being a huge George Michael fan.
Although most of the character’s storylines were on the comedic side, she also had a major story in 2009 when she became pregnant by an unknown man – later revealed to be teenager Darren Miller (Charlie G Hawkins).
She later named her son George – after her favourite singer.
Heather was the sidekick of Shirley Carter (Linda Henry), with the pair’s close friendship being a feature throughout her time on the show.
Why did Ben Mitchell kill her?
Ben unintentionally killed Heather during an argument after he was arrested for perverting the course of justice after Phil also ended up in trouble with the law.
He confronted Heather, convinced she had reported him to the police, and in the ensuing altercation ended up hitting her with a picture fame, which caused her to fall and hit her head on the kitchen counter, killing her.
He initially covered up the crime but confessed months later, eventually pleading guilty to manslaughter and being jailed for four years.
When is EastEnders on?
The soap continues on BBC One on Tuesday night at 7.30pm.
