Odds slashed on Tracey as 'Enders killer

BBC

Bookmaker William Hill has slashed its odds on Tracey The Barmaid being revealed as Archie Mitchell's killer in EastEnders.

The long-standing Queen Vic employee was previously one of the biggest outsiders in the betting with odds of 100/1, but she can now be backed at 7/1 following strong support from punters.

Jane Slaughter, who plays the background character, recently spoke to DS about the possibility of Tracey being Archie's killer.

Speaking at the time, Slaughter commented: "I wouldn't think she's that dark but who knows - she could be. I've heard there are odds at the bookies to be had for her but why? Why would she have killed him? Because he's threatening The Vic? Is it The Vic she protects or the family?"

Meanwhile, Sean Slater (Rob Kazinsky) remains the favourite to be unveiled as the murderer in Friday's live 25th anniversary episode. Despite the character's absence from the programme, he currently has odds of 7/4.

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams commented: "Tracey would be a serious shock to all, but we are hoping that Sean is proved to be a saint not a sinner, as if he is the killer we will be paying out a small fortune."
