EastEnders fans think Hunter Owen’s relationship with Louise Mitchell is about to take a seriously sinister twist.
Lou lost her virginity to Hunter two weeks ago, when the 15-year-old son of Mel Owen took revenge on Phil Mitchell by making sure he witnessed his daughter’s deflowering.
Since then the pair have continued to see each other – and sleep with each other.
Last night Hunter lied to his mum about Michelle Fowler making a pass at him and it’s made them think he’s not done trying to get revenge on Phil just yet.
The schoolboy blames Phil for killing his dad Steve Owen in a high-speed car chase 16 years ago.
As Louise is 16 and Hunter just 15, she’s committing statutory rape every time they have sex.
And fans don’t think this is a coincidence.
In fact they think that Hunter is deliberately setting Louise up to be arrested for rape.
They took to Twitter to air their views.
“Will be interesting to see how this plays out. If Hunter really is underage (hard to believe), then could Louise be done for statutory rape,” said one soap fan.
Another added: “A 15 year old can’t legally consent to sex. Non-consensual sex is rape. Louise is 16 years old and Hunter is 15 years old. Louise raped Hunter. Let’s not split hairs here. The law is the law. I can’t believe people are actually defending Louise.”
While a third said Hunter is the guilty party: “What Louise suffered is rape of virginity by deceit! And maliciousness! Hunter needs psychiatric! Hope you show what happens to nasty boys/men like him…oh keep the cctv footage.”

Could Hunter really be planning on getting Phil back by getting Louise sent to prison?
We’ve already seen him wonder if he’s a psychopath like his father.
