Danny Walters has been seen for the first time since his EastEnders character was killed off during the Christmas Day special.

The 30-year-old actor, who played mechanic Keanu Taylor in the BBC One soap, was pictured picking up his clean clothes from a launderette in east London on Friday.

He cut a casual figure in a black jacket and shorts, teamed with slippers and a blue beanie.

The BBC soap made history in an episode in February when they teased a murder in a flash but kept the identity of the body and the killer a major secret.

After ten nerve-wracking months of speculation, viewers finally found out which character was killed in the episode.

Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) was killed after being stabbed and Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) was attacked on Monday as The Six storyline reached a climax.

Six of Walford’s matriarchs; Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Suki Kaur Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), Denise Fox (Diane Parish) and Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) became embroiled in a series of events that led to Keanu’s downfall.

The six women have all been wronged by the men in their lives, leaving EastEnders fans guessing who the victim and the killer were all year long.

In addition to Keanu and Nish, several men were teased as potential victims before Christmas, with Jack Branning (Scott Maslen), Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden), Tom ‘Rocky’ Cotton (Brian Conley), Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) and Ravi Gulati ( Aaron Thiara) involved.

The festive episode came to an explosive end on Monday when Denise hit Nish over the head with a bottle as she tried to defend his wife Suki from his abuse.

Although Nish initially appeared to be dead, all was not as it seemed, but shortly afterwards Keanu burst into the Queen Victoria pub and saw Nish’s body.

He became embroiled in a fight with Sharon after their wedding was called off when his attempted kidnapping of her son Albie was exposed.

When Sharon told Keanu she would send him to jail for his attempted kidnapping of Albie if he didn’t keep quiet about Nish’s alleged death, the groom rushed at her in an attempt to strangle her.

In a very unexpected twist, Linda then took a knife and stabbed Keanu in the back in an attempt to save Sharon’s life.

Suki performed CPR on Nish and managed to get him breathing again before running to tell the others he was alive and discovering Keanu dead on the ground.

The six Walford women banded together to wrap Keanu’s body in a tarpaulin and heavy duty tape before dragging him away to be buried under the floorboards of the burnt-out cafe.

They also made up a story about Keanu holding them at knifepoint in the Queen Vic and blamed him for hitting Nish over the head.
