You know what it’s like. One minute you’re staggering around your local community, completely bladdered, and the next, you’re almost stumbling haphazardly into a murder scene.

Oblivious Rocky Cotton was inches from the killing of Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters), and, with Brian Conley set to depart EastEnders in coming weeks, may The Six women need to silence him?

As Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) and Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) grabbled with Keanu’s wrapped up body, a knock on the door horrified killer Linda Carter (Kellie Bright).

Her co-conspirators pointed out that everyone knows Linda is there, so she had to get rid of whoever it was and quickly.

Linda opened the door to find an absolutely steaming Rocky, asking for Kathy before bursting into tears over how drink had made him feel worse.

Linda struggled to ward off the nonsense-spouting Rocky as he slurred his words and said he had a surprise for Kathy.

An anxious Linda told him she wasn’t here and he eventually went on his merry way, crowing that he loves Kathy.

Linda didn’t do a great job of covering her terror – with a bleeding lip and a look of tearful panic, she would have instantly aroused suspicions. ‘

Luckily for her, she just might have got away with it as Rocky seemed not to know what planet he was on.

However, in the cold night of day, might the memory of her strange behaviour reach him?

If Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry), who was pretty much lifeless on the Vic floor at the time, came round, would his story of being battered in the pub make Rocky recall Linda’s highly strung behaviour?

And might Keanu going missing make Rocky piece together everything?

I’m not suggesting that the Six are going to kill again (although Kathy has threatened it to her ex!) but if he proved to be a rock in the road for them, how will they engineer getting out of this one.

And what part, as they are bound to, will they play in his inevitably dramatic exit?

Discussing his departure recently while dismissing rumours of behind the scenes clashes with bosses, comedian Brian told us: ‘Now you may have heard reports that I am leaving EastEnders, and it was a tough decision but it is true – I am going, and I made the decision for many reasons.

‘It is tough because there’s such a wonderful crowd in front of the camera and behind, and I loved my three years there.

‘As to truths in the reports, there are parts saying I clashed with TV bosses and the crews, I didn’t clash with anyone or go on a rant.

‘I have gone with their blessings at the Beeb and I am excited for the future and where it’s going to go.’

Addressing the departure of her beloved co-star, Kathy star Gillian Taylforth added: ‘When she says “that’s it, I’ve had enough now, get out of my life”, she still loves him. She still does love him and there’s that awful thing, that love and hate thing, you know, she loves him, but she hates what he’s done. But deep down she still really loves him.

‘I can’t tell you what happens but things will happen with Rocky and it’s going to be very upsetting. So Brian Conley’s left. He’s lovely. He was actually lovely, so lovely to work with.

‘But yeah, I don’t think she will forgive him for this one, though she does still have a deep love for him.’
