EASTENDERS’ Luisa Bradshaw-White and Kellie Bright enjoyed an off-screen reunion as fans speculate that Tina Carter will “return from the dead”.
Luisa, 46, said she’d filmed her final scenes for the BBC One soap last year, with her character’s lifeless body last seen being wrapped up by murderer Gray Atkins and put in the boot of his car.
Kellie, 44, plays Tina’s in-law Linda Carter in the show, and the pair are even closer off-screen as their characters were on.
Taking to her Instagram Story yesterday, the star shared a photo of herself and Luisa socially-distanced in the woods.
Both women are wrapped up in winter coats, with Luisa also wearing a white knitted hat as she takes the selfie.
The stars are showing off their natural beauty as they pose make-up free, with Kellie’s hair tied back into a ponytail.
She captioned the post: “Met my girl LuLu for a dog walk, but she forgot her dog!!”
Luisa shared a similar snap to her own social media page, giggling: “Walking with my bestie! But forgot the dog!”
Last night’s EastEnders dramatically ended as the Carter family got hard man Phil Mitchell involved in finding Tina, with the group turning to lawyer Gray to help find her – unaware that he is her killer.
But despite the villain – and viewers – being led to believe that the quirky character is dead, it was revealed that next week’s episodes will see the police tell the family that Tina has been spotted shoplifting in London.
It is currently unknown whether this is a case of mistaken identity, or another of crafty Gray’s ruses – but fans are convinced that Tina isn’t really dead.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “I’m becoming more and more convinced that Tina is not dead!”
Another added: “So Tina is obviously not dead then”.
A third speculated: “Tina isn’t dead. He’s got her hostage somewhere”.
