It looks like Keanu Taylor will survive Phil Mitchell’s revenge at Christmas in EastEnders.
Fans know mechanic Keanu has got both Phil’s daughter Louise and wife Sharon pregnant – and the secret is set to explode at Christmas.
They have been left fearing Keanu will be murdered at the end of the storyline after it was revealed actor Danny Walters had quit the soap.
And now some filming pictures released on Metro.co.uk appear to show a surprisingly happy ending for the character.
He can be seen running for a plane at an airport after saying an emotional goodbye to his mum Karen.
It has not yet been revealed whether these are Danny’s final scenes or whether he is drawn back to Walford and leaves another way.
Previous reports claimed Martin Fowler will shoot Keanu in a tense showdown with Linda Carter present as a hostage.
Fans speculated that Martin would come under the control of Phil after he remembers what really happened to him the night he was attacked and blackmail him, like Ben did.
But they think that when Phil orders Martin to kill Keanu, he will double-cross him and fake it so Keanu has time to escape.
Actor Danny announced he had quit as Keanu earlier this month.
He said in a statement: “It has been a joy to play Keanu Taylor for the last two and a half years.
“I have been blessed to work with the most fantastic creative team. I will miss them and my fellow actors immensely.
“EastEnders will always hold a special place in my heart and I will continue to be an avid fan.”
EastEnders’ executive producer Jon Sen added: “Keanu’s story is set to come to a dramatic and blistering conclusion in the near future as one of the best kept secrets on the Square is finally revealed with devastating consequences.”
