What happened to Abi Branning in EastEnders, why is she in the hospital and when was her life support machine turned off?

EASTENDERS fans have been left on tenterhook as to whether Abi Branning will live or die.

We have the FULL lowdown on whether she survives…

Abi has been declared brain dead after falling from the roof of the Queen Vic on Christmas Day, with medics saying there is "zero chance" of her ever regaining consciousness.

Pregnant Abi plunged from the pub roof alongside her sister Lauren, played by Jacqueline Jossa, while trying to stop disgraced Max from taking his own life.

The siblings were rushed to hospital but, while Lauren managed to pull through, Abi's life hung in the balance.

Doctors later declared her brain-stem dead, telling heartbroken Max that nothing could be done to bring his daughter back.

Since then, a ventilator has kept Abi alive while surgeons successfully managed to deliver her premature baby girl.

On January 15 viewers were left confused as to where the baby had gone to.

Show bosses have confirmed that Abi WILL die following her horror fall.

Her death will be screening THIS FRIDAY (January 19, 2018) at 8pm.

With doctors unable to do anything else to help her, Abi's family will be seen reaching the harrowing decision to end her life on January 19.

While at first Max refuses to accept his daughter's fate, he eventually takes doctors' advice having sought second opinions and looked into medical negligence lawsuits.

In heartbreaking scenes, he then agreed to switch off Abi's life support machine.

Abi is played by 21-year-old Lorna Fitzgerald.

She was born on born April 17, 1996 and before EastEnders she had bit parts in shows like Casualty and appeared in adverts.

Lorna joined the cast of the BBC soap in 2006, meaning she has been on the show for more than a decade.
