EASTENDERS viewers were left terrified tonight as Bobby Beale tried to torch his house after he was haunted by dead sister Lucy.
The teen has been struggling to adjust back to life in Walford and living in the same house where he killed his older sibling.
He started to have haunting visions of Lucy a few weeks ago, and in tonight’s episode, he also heard her voice taunting him.
Lucy called him a “mummy’s boy” and said she would “never forgive” him as well as laughing menacingly as Bobby clawed at his head to try and make her voice go away.
In one flash moment, he saw her dead body lying on the living room floor where he had whacked her over the head.
Actress Hetti Bywater, who played Lucy, appeared in flashes before Bobby decided to take drastic action.
Heading to The Arches, he managed to steal a full petrol can while Phil Mitchell was distracted on the phone.
He then sneaked it back to his house in a black bin liner, but not before Max Branning saw him.
Max asked if he was OK and Bobby told him he was fine, before racing into the house and dousing the living room with petrol.
Clearly spotting something wasn’t right, Max called through the back door for Bobby to let him in, but when he got no response, he started trying to kick the door in.

He then pulled out a lighter but before he could strike it, the show’s famous duff duffs began.
Viewers were terrified by the scenes, with one writing on Twitter: “Jesus Christ these Lucy hallucinations are terrifying #Eastenders.”
Another added: “Bobby omg, I’ve got goosebumps #EastEnders”.
While a third tweeted: “What a place to end it!!!! Holy f**k! Obvs Max will stop him in time but didn’t see that coming.”
