OLD WRECKS SHUNTED OFF.
GOODBYE and good riddance to some of soapland's most clapped-out characters.
At the start of an extraordinary exodus, there was tragedy as shouty EastEnders moron Kevin "get on your" Wicks popped his clogs (about time!).
Then Carly, Deano and Denise decided to leave dirty great carbon footprints by pointlessly scattering his ashes all over the world.
Next, jailbird Chelsea buggered off to stay with the mysterious "Aunty Jill".
Meanwhile, up on Coronation Street, after her ridiculous five-week marriage to Jason Grimshaw (and they said it wouldn't last!), schemer Sarah Platt dumped him and jetted off for a new life in Italy.
Arrivederci! And newlywed Liz McDonald's psychotic ex Jim was cast into the wilderness (so he was) for beating the hell out of blood-spattered groom Vernon Tomlin.
Back in Albert Square, not a moist eye in the house as Gollum look-alike Wicks careered to his well-deserved death.
After the lord of the lethal car lot skidded to oblivion, his non-daughter Carly sobbed: "The thing about my dad is he had this thing inside him." Namely a scaffolding pole.
With a metal stake through his guts, Kevin went cross-eyed and kissed his ex-wife Shirley Terrahawk goodbye. Who says there's no decent comedy on TV?
What a joke ... crash in EastEnders
