BBC EastEnders fans work out Karens exit storyline – and its not the café fire

EastEnders fans reckon they've figured out how Karen Taylor will leave Walford – and it's not due to the cafe fire.

Later this week, Rocky Cotton plans to set the cafe ablaze for insurance money, as he looks to pay off his debt to loan shark Nish Panesar.

Fans initially thought Karen, played by Lorraine Stanley, might perish in the fire when news broke of her departure from the BBC soap.

But now, viewers believe they've uncovered her real exit storyline amidst the fake kidnapping of Sharon Watts and Keanu Taylor's son Albie.

Karen and Keanu teamed up to kidnap Albie after discovering Sharon planned to move away from Walford with her son, and some fans now think her exit will be tied to this plot.

"I'm wondering if the "kidnap" storyline will be the reason Karen leaves. I can see the truth coming out and Karen taking all the blame to protect Keanu," one viewer shared on Reddit.

Another added: "I can't believe that after everything that has happened, she still wants to fleece Sharon and take her son. I'm glad Keanu told her no. She sounds like she's totally lost the plot," while a third wrote: "She is completely off the rails."

Actress Lorraine opened up about her departure from the show, confessing to a whirlwind of feelings according to the Daily Mirror.

She shared: "I was sad, it was a mix of emotions, it's sad but it's exciting as now I can go and do what I want. I just want people to remember her as the best mum on the square, a heart of gold, she'd give you her last fiver and would do anything for her kids – a bit like myself."

The actress also took to Instagram to express her gratitude to her fans as she posted: "I'm so grateful for all of your lovely messages this past week. Thank you to Daran Little for creating the Taylors and to the BBC for giving me the opportunity to play such a fabulous character, I'll be sad to be saying goodbye to Karen Taylor and will miss all the cast and crew at EastEnders.

"However, I'm looking forward to my next chapter and excited about being a jobbing Actor again and starting new ventures. Again your kind words of support have been amazing!!! I'm going to miss my Taylor/Baker famalam."
