How did Tina die in EastEnders?

Gray appeared to kill Tina in harrowing scenes in last night’s episode of EastEnders (December 28), just months after he murdered his wife Chantelle.

Things rapidly escalated after Tina discovered the truth about Chantelle and confronted Gray in a furious showdown. 

Gray then angrily chased Tina around his flat and killed her to stop her exposing him as a murderer.

Viewers subsequently saw Gray covering her body in wrapping paper as he shouted over her corpse about how she’d refused to listen to him.

The evil lawyer then managed to play it cool in front of the police before driving away with Tina’s body in the boot of his car. 

Is Tina actually dead?

EastEnders fans are convinced that Tina isn’t actually dead – and that she'll return to the Square in the new year and expose Gray.

One viewer tweeted: "I don’t think Tina is her rock up on New Year’s Day or something alive & well ready to expose Gray #EastEnders."

Another fan said: "Why do I have a feeling Tina isn’t dead…#Eastenders."

A third viewer said: "Omg I hope Tina isn't actually dead."

But speaking about Tina’s exit, actress Luisa Bradshaw-White confirmed that Tina had indeed left the soap in a bodybag.

Luisa revealed: “I’m happy with the fact that she can’t come back, so it’s a proper shut door. The final nature of it I needed.

“It’s an exciting storyline to get as an actor, so it was nice to play the drama of it all. But I’m really excited for the next stage.”

Why is Tina leaving EastEnders?

Luisa announced that she was leaving the soap to try her hand at other projects back in October.

Telling fans the news on social media, the actress revealed: "Finally the time has come to say goodbye to my EastEnders family.

"I am leaving EE at the end of the year! After 7 awesome years it’s time for me to move on and get excited about other projects!

"I have had the most amazing time on EE and will miss the cast and crew so much. But I am also completely excited about the new adventures that await me.

Tagging the accounts of the actors who play her on screen family, Luisa also said: "I love you more than anything in the world. Thank you to all the awesome and loyal fans for your support and love of Tina.

"I have appreciated it so much. Keep watching there is lots of drama to come! 💗💗💗."
