EastEnders viewers fear Mel Owen is dead after Sharon Mitchell runs her car off the road in horror crash

EASTENDERS fans fear Mel Owen is dead after Sharon Mitchell ran her car off the road in a horror crash.

Tonight's episode of the hit BBC One soap was action-packed, with Sharon smashing into Mel's car as she threatened to reveal all about her affair.

Mel – played by Tamzin Outhwaite – has been busy blackmailing Sharon, after finding out she is secretly carrying toy boy Keanu Taylor’s baby.

And it all came to a head tonight, in shocking scenes that left fans reeling.

One wrote on Twitter: "mel dying is the worst thing that’s ever happened to me since ronnie and roxy. i want financial compensation from eastenders for putting me through this."

Another said: "Oh my god first Steve Owen, and then Hunter and now Mel! That poor twisted family. They all dead now #EastEnders."

A third wrote: "OMG is Mel dead?"

EastEnders bosses haven't yet revealed if Mel will die as a result of the crash, but fans will be finding out in a matter of weeks.

Soap fans were devastated when Tamzin Outhwaite announced she was quitting the show in July.

And the 48-year-old actress shared a tweet in September after filming her final scenes.

She wrote: "So that’s it! The end of an era… for me at least. Melanie Healy/Beale/Owen has left the building…

"It’s been a pleasure , a privilege and a 21 year association with a family I will cherish forever and never forget….

"TIL next time my beautiful cast and crew… you all rock."

EastEnders is on BBC One, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
