EastEnders has killed off Ricky Norwood’s much loved character ‘Fatboy’ in a shock twist.

Arthur ‘Fatboy’ Chubb died after being trapped in the boot of a car in Mitchell’s Autos, with the car later being taken to a scrap yard to be crushed.

A shocked Vincent ran to try rescue whoever was trapped in the car, however was ultimately too late and Vincent walked grasping onto Fatboy’s iconic ‘F’ necklace.

Norwood played the role for just under six years, after first appearing in EastEnders’ online spin-off ‘EastEnders: E20’. He appeared 439 episodes in total.
