EastEnders fans are convinced that Arthur Chubb, aka Fatboy, is still alive after spotting a clue.

Fatboy was seemingly killed off in 2015, however as his body was never seen fans wondered if he could still be alive.

But now EastEnders fans are convinced he is alive after spotting a message in a condolence card.

EastEnders fans convinced Fatboy is alive

Recently Sonia learnt that Dot Branning had died and this week a funeral was held for her.

Many former Albert Square residents returned for her funeral including Lauren Branning and Lofty Holloway.

Dot was close with Fatboy and many wondered if he would make a return for the funeral.

Although Fatboy didn’t make an on-screen return, fans are convinced he is alive after they saw Dot’s great-nephew Reiss reading a condolences card.

Reiss looked at a card which read: “Mrs B – Forever in my heart. Arthur x.”

As Arthur is Fatboy’s real name and he would often refer to Dot as ‘Mrs B’ fans believe this is a sign he is alive and may even return to Walford one day.

EastEnders: What happened to Fatboy?

Fatboy was played by actor Ricky Norwood and the character was in EastEnders from 2010 until 2015.

In 2015 Fatboy became caught up in a feud between Ronnie Mitchell and Vincent Hubbard.

In a tragic case of mistaken identity Fatboy was kidnapped by some of Ronnie’s heavies and locked in the boot of a car at the Arches.

Unfortunately the car then got taken off to be crushed and the last we saw of Ricky Norwood’s character was Vincent pulling Fatboy’s trademark ‘F’ medallion out of the car’s wreckage.

However viewers never saw Fatboy’s body.
