Cameron and not Carl to be Emmerdale’s anniversary death
October 15th is noted as the night the Emmerdale explosion begins and the big money has come on Carl King being the character that will be killed off.
Three babies, two weddings and a death have been touted in the press in the coming weeks on the soap, with it being added that the death will occur in a one-hour live show to mark Emmerdale’s 40th anniversary.
Carl is in the leading storyline at present and has been backed from 4/1 into 1/2 to shoot his last scene, but given the way soaps typically run, the obvious candidate is not usually the right one.
Meanwhile, he is far too short a price to back in a race that effectively has more than a dozen runners.
Cameron Murray is caught up in the same storyline and there is a strong likelihood that they both will be doing their utmost to prevent the future wedding of Chas Dingle to Dan Spencer.
Carl will be doing so in order to get back some money that he is owed after being jilted at the altar by Chas in the past and Cameron because he has been having an affair with her.
Meanwhile, Cameron has also been having the affair behind the back of girlfriend Debbie Dingle, who has notorious evil characters Cain and Charity as parents, who will not take the news well if they find out.
Cameron’s death certainly represents the value in the market at 8/1.
After Carl in the betting are elderly characters Alan Turner and Betty Eagleton and with Betty believed to be suffering with some ill health in real life, this would make sense.
However, Len Reynolds died in the episode to mark Emmerdale’s 500th birthday and killing off another ageing character may be a bit similar.
Sarah Sugden is another obvious candidate at 8/1, but whether the soap would want to showcase the death of a child suffering from a life-threatening illness on a live programme is a little far-fetched.
