EastEnders: Ted Murray will shoot one of his neighbours [BBC / Jack Barnes]
When Joyce and Ted Murray moved to Albert Square from Walford Towers, it was soon revealed that Ted has a gun stored in his house.
While Joyce urged him to get rid of it, Ted stashed it away again and it hasn’t been on screen since.
All that, however, is about to change as one resident will find themselves being shot and bringing chaos to the Square in an already action packed week.
As a terrifying gas explosion rips through the heart of EastEnders, Ted, played by Christopher Timothy, grows anxious and fearful about what he has witnessed.

Unsure what to do next, he grabs his gun as the couple grow frantic as they became aware of what’s going on outside.
But the worst disaster for the couple is yet to come as one of the residents knocks on the door of their flat to see how they’re coping.
Overwhelmed with fear, Ted clutches the gun a little too tightly and pulls the trigger in a moment of reaction.
Who has Ted shot? And will they survive or will the tragic week claim yet another life?
