TINA Carter makes a shock return from the dead next week in EastEnders as the police report she’s been spotted shoplifting in London.
GRAY Atkins claimed his second victim in the form of Tina at the end of last year after she discovered the truth about his wife Chantelle. But is she still alive? Here’s the lowdown…
Dead Tina Carter is spotted shoplifting in London next week in EastEnders
Is Tina alive in EastEnders?
EastEnders spoilers have revealed that DCI Arthurs tells Mick and Shirley that someone spotted a person matching Tina’s description shoplifting in London next week.
The officer tells them that Tina gave her name, but then ran off.
While Mick is relieved Tina is okay, Shirley only grows increasingly suspicious and announces she’s going to go out looking for Tina.
Is Tina alive after all?
EastEnders viewers didn’t actually see Gray kill Tina on-screen, and fans have been predicting a death twist ever since Gray wrapped her body up in wrapping paper before stuffing it in the boot of his car and driving off.
One fan tweeted: “Is TINA actually ALIVE???”
Another excited viewer added: “#EastEnders possibly lining up biggest TWIST in years….”
A third chimed in: “#EastEnders There is more to Tina’s story then meets the eye I reckon and I want Tina to come back to team up with Whitney to bring down Gray as he has never taken on 2 people simultaneously. She also needs to be by Mick following his ordeal so I hope Tina is alive for Mick.”
However speaking about Tina’s exit, actress Luisa Bradshaw-White confirmed that Tina had indeed left the soap in a bodybag.
Luisa revealed: “I’m happy with the fact that she can’t come back, so it’s a proper shut door. The final nature of it I needed.
“It’s an exciting storyline to get as an actor, so it was nice to play the drama of it all. But I’m really excited for the next stage.”

How did Tina die in EastEnders?
Gray appeared to kill Tina in harrowing scenes last December, just months after he murdered his wife Chantelle.
Things rapidly escalated after Tina discovered the truth about Chantelle and confronted Gray in a furious showdown.
Gray then angrily chased Tina around his flat and killed her to stop her exposing him as a murderer.
Viewers subsequently saw Gray covering her body in wrapping paper as he shouted over her corpse about how she’d refused to listen to him.
The evil lawyer then managed to play it cool in front of the police before driving away with Tina’s body in the boot of his car.

“I have had the most amazing time on EE and will miss the cast and crew so much. But I am also completely excited about the new adventures that await me.
Tagging the accounts of the actors who play her on screen family, Luisa also said: “I love you more than anything in the world. Thank you to all the awesome and loyal fans for your support and love of Tina.
