EastEnders fans were left stunned as the soap aired shocking scenes showing a terrifying car crash stunt that left Mel Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite) for dead on Tuesday night.
The crash happened after Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean), determined to stop Mel from revealing the truth about her affair with Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters), chased her nemisis down the motorway.
However, tragedy struck when Mel lost control of her car and collided into a broken down vehicle in front of her, leaving Sharon watching on in shock.
As fans praised the scene for being: ‘the best EastEnders stunt seen in YEARS’ one more question played on people’s minds – will Mel survive the terrible crash?
Does Mel die in EastEnders tonight?
Given the state of Mel’s vehicle after the crash and the fact that we could see what looked like her lifeless arm hanging out of the side of the car, things certainly don’t look good for the character heading into tonight’s episode.
Fans will have to tune in to EastEnders tonight to find out whether Mel survives the crash or not – and whether Sharon will try and help her or leave her for dead – but one thing is for certain, actress Tamzin Outhwaite is definitely leaving the soap soon.
Revealing her decision behind quitting the show earlier this year, she told Metro.co.uk: ‘When John (Yorke) asked me to return to EastEnders back in 2017, I jumped at the chance to play Mel once more but it was only supposed to be for a year. That year quickly passed and I agreed to stay on for another, but now the time feels right to once again pursue other challenges.
‘I will of course miss so many people here at EastEnders, and I will forever have good memories of my time at the show, but I am also excited to experience new roles outside of Walford.’
Whether the crash spells the end for Mel and marks the conclusion of Tamzin’s exit storyline remains to be seen – viewers will have to stay tuned to find out.
EastEnders airs tonight, Thursday 14th November, at 7:30pm on BBC One.
