It is believed that the boat will go down in a huge disaster spelling the end of at least one person’s life.

It was revealed recently that the soap’s 35th anniversary will be spent on a boat sailing down the River Thames, celebrating the The Vic winning ‘Best Pub’ in London.

However it won’t be smooth sailing as a major character will die in the disaster.

An insider told The Sun: “Where better for a major death than on the Thames itself, which is so central to the show?

“Trouble has been brewing in Walford for a while, and they decided it was the perfect occasion to see off a big name.”

The source continued: “It’s thought that, as part of the dramatic scenes, Sharon will give birth on the boat, but she is just one of many who could see themselves go overboard to an icy, watery death.”
