EastEnders character Stuart Highway revealed he killed Detective Inspector Thompson, leaving viewers shocked.
In last night’s episode (Tuesday, December 16) Rainie was struggling to keep the secret about her whereabouts on the night that Ian Beale was attacked.
Before the attack, Ian had made some horrible comments to Stuart and Rainie.
In last night’s episode, Rainie was unable to keep quiet any longer. She revealed to Stuart that she took drugs the night Ian went missing as she was feeling low after Ian berated her that day.
However Stuart was glad she was honest with him and assured his wife he loved her no matter what.
But soon, Rainie began to quiz Stuart on his whereabouts that night. He revealed he got into an altercation with Callum’s boss DI Thompson.

He then revealed that he stored Thompson’s body in the fridges and burnt his clothes in the allotments.
Whilst Rainie was horrified at first, she told Stuart they are ‘in this together’ before telling him she was proud of him, regarding the dead man in their fridge.
Viewers were also shocked by the revelation.
OMFG When Stuart said "I mean he's my little brother" – I was so shocked, I mean I expected him to do something to DIDH, but to kill him! 😱 I'm worried, I can totally see Callum saying he did it, to save Stuart, he'd absolutely sacrifice himself, due to guilt! 😬😭 #EastEnders pic.twitter.com/q04Cn0Z9Kb
