The last episode of the BBC soap saw Albert Square left in chaos with people stuck under the fallen vehicle while others were feared dead.
While fans are being kept in the dark about who will be meeting their maker, there have been suggestions that Lee Carter (played by Danny-Boy Hatchard) or Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) are going to be killed off.
Speaking ahead of tonight’s episode of EastEnders, soap star Danny-Boy, 25, opened up about his departure: “I will [be really sad to leave] but off to new things. I’m alive, I’m kicking and I’m looking forward to going out and getting my hands dirty in something else.”
He remained tight-lipped about whether or not he’d wrapped up filming on the soap but confessed he would “miss” his character Lee.
“I wish I could give him a hug but unfortunately I can’t, so I’m just hoping – hypothetically if he isn’t under the bus – if he does come back in the future, I hope he comes back well whether that’s me or someone else,” Danny-Boy explained.
He went on to talk about the projects he’d like to do going forward: “As long as it’s quality, I really don’t mind really. As long as the script’s brilliant and as long as the production team are great, the director and stuff, I really don’t mind.
“I’m interested in doing TV, something completely different to a soap, I’m interested in doing a bit of theatre.”
Danny-Boy also said he would “never say no to anything” in regards reality TV if it came down to it but “not at the moment”.

The actor was on the red carpet last night at the National Television Awards after the soap was up for a gong in the Serial Drama category, but unfortunately the series lost out to ITV rivals Emmerdale.
However, Lacey Turner was awarded the accolade for Serial Drama Performance for her portrayal of Stacey Slater.
Danny-Boy also defended the bus crash storyline, which has come under fire from some viewers.
“I think just judging from past experience, the people have mixed reviews are not the average viewers. They’re not the ones that have watched it four times a week for the past 30-odd years,” he said.

He went on to say: “So naturally, I think the speed that EastEnders runs at, I think if you’re going to miss three episodes naturally you’re not going to know what the hell is going on.
“I think all the positive reviews have been from people who’ve stayed tuned and stayed loyal to the show.”
Addressing the gaffes, he said: “Listen, if you’re banging out four episodes a week on a TV show, there’s going to be mistakes, isn’t there? Let’s be true. Very minor ones but it is what it is. We try and produce the best quality we can.”
EastEnders airs tonight on BBC One at 7.30pm.
