Who killed Lucy Beale? It's a question that's been hot on the lips of soap fans since her body was found on Walford Common - and a list of suspects has been formulated.

From Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) and Abi Branning (Lorna Fitzgerald), to Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick), Ben Mitchell (Harry Reid) and Jane Beale (Laurie Brett), everyone has their own idea as to who killed Lucy (Hetti Bywater).

But Adam Woodyatt has insisted that his character Ian Beale - Lucy's father - had nothing to do with her untimely demise.

HOW WILL JACQUELINE JOSSA'S PREGNANCY AFFECT EASTENDERS' LAUREN BRANNING?

Speaking with the Radio Times, Adam said: “It’s possible [he killed her], but if that happened, I’d have a long chat with our executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins to try and find out why.

"I don’t think so, though. I wouldn’t buy that one.”

The mystery surrounding the identity of Lucy’s killer has been running since Good Friday, with events set to come to a head during the soap’s upcoming 30th anniversary in 2015.

As for how the storyline has affected Adam, the actor - who has been in the show since the very beginning - says that this year has been unlike any other during his three decades on EastEnders.

He explained: “On an emotional level, nothing has come close to this. Dominic has given me a brilliant storyline which has, at times, been very challenging. But the whole point of soaps is to portray real life and this is what happens to some families.

"Grief can be very raw. And I can’t use a tear stick, so when Ian’s cried, I’ve really cried.

“As far as the character of Lucy goes, Hetti Bywater might have only played her for a short period of time, but I’ve known the character for 20 years. So it has been distressing. But my colleagues have all been really patient and the writers and directors have all been brilliant.”

EASTENDERS: LUCY BEALE'S KILLER TO BE REVEALED LIVE ON TELLY

The big birthday week in February of next year will see live elements over all the episode, culminating in a full 30-minute live instalment from the soap’s set in Elstree.

And, unsurprisingly, Ian Beale is set to be in the middle of all the 'whodunnit' action.

He joked: “I’ve put in for a holiday request, I’ve booked sick leave, but they’ve all been turned down. But joking aside, I’m really looking forward to it.”
