EastEnders hints at Ravi Gulati's death as Denise 'forced to kill stalker' at Christmas

EastEnders is gearing up for some massive storylines over the next 10 months - with a murder set to take place at Christmas.

And bosses have hinted the murder victim could be restauranteur Ravi Gulati, who is set to show a ‘darker side’ in upcoming episodes of the BBC soap.

Fans have already seen Ravi kill his dad Ranveer last year and let Suki take the blame for it.

But will his past finally catch up with him and is someone out to take revenge? Or has he got himself in some other trouble?

In a ‘dark twist’ EastEnders confirmed someone will end up dead at Christmas in a chilling fast-forward sequence earlier this week.

Viewers were left in a frenzy after six of Walford’s matriarchs were seen standing around a dead body in the Queen Vic, but the question on everybody’s lips is who is it?

In the clip aired on February 20, Denise, Sharon, Linda, Kathy, Suki and Stacey look stunned as they gather around the mystery dead man, with one of them tipped to be the killer.

The Six, as they have been nicknamed, are seen covered in blood and scratches, Kathy's dress is ripped - and Denise is holding a broken champagne bottle.

Now EastEnders fans think it is Denise who is the murderer and the dead body is Ravi. But what is her motive?

Over recent weeks viewers have watched Denise and Ravi become close, despite the fact she is married to Jack Branning.

Denise betrayed Jack by sharing a kiss with Ravi and ever since he has been trying to coax her into having a full-blown affair.

Despite Denise initially refusing to give in, recent trouble with husband Jack has led to her feeling alone and unwanted.

Taking their relationship to the next level, Ravi booked them a hotel room and gave Denise the keycard, only for her to misplace it.

But husband Jack found it and confronted her, so has he worked out they were having some sort of affair?

While Denise ends things with Ravi, he doesn’t take rejection well.

And EastEnders fans think he could go on to stalk Denise, culminating in the explosive Christmas episode where he potentially ends up dead.

Taking to Twitter, one fan said Ravi already seemed like he was getting obsessed with Denise writing: “Stalker vibes from Ravi #EastEnders.”

Another tweeted: “Oh lord psycho Ravi #EastEnders.”

“The look of a lover scorned. Watch out D. #EastEnders,” a third added.

EastEnders boss Chris Clenshaw confirmed darker storylines for Ravi are ahead, saying: “Ravi is captivating, cunning and dangerous and can go from pleasant to menacing with very little warning.”

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
