A DESPERATE Bobby Beale is set to flee Walford next week after being betrayed by his own grandmother, Kathy.
The troubled teen – who’s played by Clay Milner Russell in the BBC soap -is crushed when a furious Jack Branning berates Max for saying the killer could stay with them, and he’s sent packing.
Kathy – unaware that her grandson is suffering hallucinations of his dead sister, Lucy – is concerned when she sees how on edge Bobby is.
She decides to take matters into her own hands but makes a decision that causes Bobby to flee Walford after reaching breaking point.
Later, Bobby wakes up in a park and heads back to the Square where his behaviour draws the attention of Callum Highway – Tony Clay – who asks if he’s okay.
But Callum’s concern causes him to run off again, this time into Rainie Cross, who he exchanges insults with.
As Bobby tries to confront his past, he struggles to come to terms with everything that’s happened and finds himself in a dangerous situation.
Will he be okay?
The Sun Online revealed last month how Bobby would suffer hallucinations due to a mental health crisis.
A source told The Sun: “Bobby’s really struggling with what he’s done and his visions of Lucy are only going to get worse.
“He revisits Walford common where her body was dumped hoping to find some closure but in the end it’s too much.
“He decides the only thing he can do is run away and leave Walford behind forever.”
Viewers have already had a glimpse of what Bobby was struggling with back in August when dead Lucy appeared to him in the living room of the Beale house.
He said: “I shouldn’t keep thinking about that night but I try and remember all the good times but I can’t.

“It’s all blocked. I know I’m pushing everyone away and I’m trying to deal with it the best I can.
“I never wanted to come back here. I tried to stay away. This isn’t my home, it can’t be. Is this what I deserve?
Every time I open my eyes, every time I come in here I see you. I see you all the time. Are you always going to be here?”
But his struggle is going to get even worse over the coming weeks as he tries to shake her off, not realising he is having a mental health crisis.
