EastEnders viewers have shared their hopes that Michelle Fowler’s sudden car crash will spell the end of the character’s time on the show.
At the end of Tuesday night’s episode, viewers saw her plough into the fast food shop, apparently after drinking, leaving her slumped unconscious at the wheel.

But many made it clear they would not miss the character, whose affair with her former student and niece’s boyfriend, Preston, went public this week.
Michelle is just a wreck. She needs to leave Eastenders for good. #eastenders

I really hope that's the end of Michelle, such a dull character #eastenders

Somehow I can't feel any sympathy for Michelle, she hasn't made me care about her enough to be upset that she maybe dead. #eastenders

But some people sympathised with Jenna Russell’s character, who repeatedly insisted that she was in love with Preston.
#Eastenders Everyone was WAY to harsh on Michelle… it's not a crime for a 47 year old woman to fall for a younger guy.. poor woman
