It began digging up the corpse in the woods before finding something (Ray!) and barking to its owner.

And with the secret set to be exposed, Mel's going to face a race against time to leave Walford with her killer son.

Viewers know Mel's son Hunter shot Ray to save his mother from being killed.

But since the killing, Hunter has shown disturbing behaviour including plotting to kill again and making threats towards the police investigating Ray's disappearance.

Mel has resorted to locking her son in the house and removing all the knives so he can't kill her easily.

She's even agreed to sell her half of the club to the Mitchells for far less than what it's worth so she can get her son away from the area and the police investigation.

EastEnders fans have now predicted Hunter's demise with actor Charlie Winter recently confirmed as being axed from the soap.

One said: "The body's been found. Tick tock Hunter! #EastEnders".

A third said: "DIDN'T take very long at all for Ray's body to actually be discovered did it? #EastEnders".

A fourth added: "Walking a dog in the dead of night in the middle of the woods is rather odd; though it did sniff out a decomposing Ray. Must be a cadaver dog #EastEnders".
