Betting opens on 'EastEnders' whodunnit
EastEnders' 'Who's the Daddy?' storyline surrounding Heather's pregnancy has spread to the betting world.

Cheese-loving Heather Trott's (Cheryl Fergison) shock pregnancy in the BBC soap has sparked the show's latest whodunnit and the market has today been formed as to the perpetrator.

Heather's ex-husband Minty Peterson (Cliff Parisi) is the favourite at 2/1, while Eddie (Will Chitty), the mystery man she met in R&R in February, is second favourite at 3/1.

Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) ranks at 5/1 and Darren Miller (Charlie G Hawkins) stands at 6/1. Garry Hobbs (Ricky Groves) and Vinnie Monks (Bobby Davro) are 8/1 shots, while Vinnie's son Callum (Elliott Jordan) is the rank outsider at 16/1.

Unlucky-in-life Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) joins Christian Clarke (John Partridge) at 10/1, with taxi driver and head of the Slater clan Charlie (Derek Martin) at 12/1.

A Ladbrokes spokesman said: "Minty and Heather have got previous and as a result, it's Walford's loveable mechanic who leads the way. But EastEnders chiefs love a twist and the rest of the field aren't too far behind."

It is believed that Heather conceived after a night out in R&R back in February. After suffering an asthma attack two months later, she was stunned when the doctor revealed that she was pregnant after a series of routine tests.

Earlier this month, Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) followed Heather to the hospital, where she was gobsmacked to rumble her best friend's secret.
