Grant to be killed off
09:30 24 October 2005
'EastEnders' bosses are reportedly planning to kill off Grant Mitchell.
Ross Kemp recently reprised his famous role on the BBC soap - but producers are already in talks about Grant's death so they are ready if the actor decides to quit the soap again.
A BBC insider is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "Although Ross is back for the return of the Mitchell brothers, he is still not sure how long he will stay for.
"The thinking is that he will stay only for a four-month period next year and then put the role to bed for good."
"It may be an opportunity for us to give Ross the send-off he'd like for Grant - a massively heroic death."
Its rumoured Grant might die after a violent showdown with gangland boss Johnny Allen, who is set to leave Albert Square next year.
The source added: "Nothing will happen without a decision from Ross. But it is my understanding that there are plans for Grant to die in the ongoing gangland feud."
