EastEnders’ Mel Owen ‘returns from the dead’ – but plan goes terribly wrong

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.

Afraid that she would tell the guests everything, Ray reluctantly agreed to her demands.

Mel said: "Now feet your lying, cheating backside out there and start acting you snivelling cockroach of a man."

The rest of the ceremony went down without a hitch and the couple tied the knot.

But there was another nasty surprise for Ray when his other two wives turned up at the church.

Nicola and Maddie, who are also the mothers to his kids, congratulated Ray on his latest marriage.
