EastEnders caught viewers out with another shock twist tonight when Mel Owen ‘returned from the dead’.
They were convinced Mel was dead after husband-to-be Ray Kelly suffocated her with her own wedding dress in a brutal attack.
Ray had dumped Mel’s lifeless body in the cupboard under the stairs and went to the church to keep up pretences, so got a shock when she made an appearance.
Mel put on a fake smile as she walked down the aisle, before asking Ray: "What’s wrong? You look like you’ve seen a ghost."
The pair headed off to a private room for a talk, with Mel still fearing Ray would try to kill her.
