It’s been known for a while that actress Pam St Clement will leave hit soap EastEnders, but it's never been clear how.
Rumour had it her character Pat Evans would die in a big fire in Albert Square, but that now appears not to be the case.
The Daily Star reports that the cause of her death will be from cancer that leads to a heart attack.
According to the report, she learns she is dying after collapsing in her kitchen.
Doctors perform tests on her which show she has the disease but there is nothing they can do to save her.
However the script is so top secret, even Pam didn’t know what her exit would be like.
"There has been a lot of speculation about Pat’s departure," a spokesperson for EastEnders said.
"We are not going to comment as we do not want to spoil it for viewers."
