EastEnders pub boss Alfie Moon has emerged as the new bookies' favourite to kill off Derek Branning at Christmas.

Derek (Jamie Foreman) will lose his life over the festive period, and although the exact nature of his death has yet to be officially confirmed, fans are expecting the Walford bad boy to be murdered.

Earlier this month, Derek's brother Max was the favourite to kill him, but bookmaker William Hill has now put Alfie (Shane Richie) in top position with odds of 5/1.

Max is now in second place with odds of 6/1 and Jack Branning is at 7/1, while others in the running include Billy Mitchell (9/1), Joey Branning (10/1) and Alfie's unfaithful wife Kat (10/1).

Dot Branning and Jean Slater are currently seen as two of the most unlikely culprits as both have odds of 100/1.

Prime suspect Alfie could have motive to bump off Derek if the villain is revealed as Kat's mystery lover next month.

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams commented: "Derek is quickly becoming one of the soap's most unpopular characters and just about everyone will have a reason for killing him off by the time Santa arrives in Albert Square."
