"I shouldn't keep thinking about that night," Bobby said breaking down in the Beale family living room.

"I try and remember all the good times but I can't.

"It's all blocked. I know I'm pushing everyone away and I'm trying to deal with it the best I can.

Lucy was killed by Bobby in 2014 when in an argument he hit her over the head with a jewellery box.

At first he didn't know he had been responsible for her death after mum Jane discovered what he had done and moved her body, convincing Bobby that Lucy had recovered and gone out.

But eventually 10-year-old Bobby had realised that he was responsible for Lucy's death when Jane began to crack under the pressure of covering up the crime.

When Ian discovered what had happened they agreed to keep it quiet, later helping Phil Mitchell frame Max Branning for the crime.

The truth was finally revealed when Bobby attacked mum Jane and confessed to both crimes before being sent to prison.
