EastEnders fans will be left fearing Shirley Carter has been murdered by Carl White.
The brassy blonde disappears after confronting Carl when she discovers he’s been using Phil Mitchell’s garage to mend his stolen cars.
But she may have bitten off more than she can chew as she suddenly goes missing.
The drama kicks off when Shirley confesses to her friends that she’s moving to Greece after stealing a load of cash from Phil Mitchell.
She goes to the hospital to see Phil one last time and rub it in about his stolen cash. But she doesn’t get the reaction she’s after when he tells her she’s entitled to the money.
It’s clear that she still has feelings for Phil and when she later discovers Jay Mitchell and Dexter Hartman are dealing with dodgy Carl, she can’t help but stick her nose in.
Shirley soon works out that Carl may have more to do with the crash than he’s letting on.
Unafraid, she confronts him but her nerves crack when he coldly tells her he warned her to keep out of his business and seeing as she hasn’t, he is going to have to deal with her in his own way.
Shirley is not seen again and when word spreads that she’s gone, Jean Slater tries to call her.
However when Shirley’s phone rings fans will see it’s in one of the bins on the market along with her jacket and a picture of her and Heather Trott.
A show insider said: “Has Carl killed Shirley? Wait and see!”
