EastEnders has kept tight-lipped over what exactly brings Bianca back to Walford - but this picture could put paid to the rumours it'll be for a funeral...

Recently, EastEnders viewers have been convinced Whitney is going to be killed off and according to The Sun, the Walford cast were spotted filming a funeral scene near the BBC One soap studios.

Last month, Whitney was thrilled when her boyfriend Callum proposed to her, but she has no idea that Callum, aka Halfway, is struggling with his sexuality.

During an argument with Ben Mitchell, Ben figured out Callum's secret, and whilst at Callum and Whitney's flat-warming party, Ben opened up about losing Paul.

Not long after, Ben and Callum ended up kissing and having a one-night stand.

But Callum then PROPOSED to Whitney and didn't tell her what happened between him and Ben.

It was recently announced that Patsy would be returning to the BBC soap after her departure in 2014.

Patsy originally played Bianca from 1993 until 1999 before returning in 2008 with her children Liam, Tiffany, Morgan and her stepdaughter, Whitney.

She left again in 2014 to live in Milton Keynes with her new boyfriend Terry, his two children TJ and Rosie, and her children, Tiffany and Morgan.

Terry returned briefly in 2015 to pick up his granddaughter, TJ's daughter Beth, who he had with Cindy.

Tiffany returned permanently last year after running away from home and has stayed on Albert Square since.

Earlier this week, Patsy posted a throwback picture with Martine McCutcheon, who played Tiffany Mitchell from 1995-1999, suggested they should bring Martine's character back from the dead.
