Celebrity MasterChef started once again last week and saw Death in Paradise actress Shyko Amos become the first contestant eliminated from the competition. Yesterday, (Wednesday, July 9), the show continued and this time it was the turn of presenter Dom Littlewood, field hockey player Sam Quek, conductor Karen Gibson, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s Baga Chipz and ex-EastEnder Phil Daniels. While he managed to sail through Celebrity MasterChef, how did Daniels’ Kevin Wicks leave the BBC One soap?

What happened to Kevin Wicks in EastEnders?

Kevin Wicks (played by Phil Daniels) was Shirley Carter’s (Linda Henry) ex-husband and father to her children Carly (Kellie Shirley) and Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo).

He first joined the cast of EastEnders in 2006 and quickly became a fan-favourite known for his jokey sense of humour and cockney charm as he became the owner of the Car Lot.

During his time on the show, Kevin also married Denise Fox (Diane Parish) and they seemed very happy together.

This was until Kevin got involved with the likes of Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

Phil forced Kevin to sell his dodgy motors at the Car Lot which the latter reluctantly agreed to do.

However, when Phil heard Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) speak to one of his police officer friends, he discovered the stolen cars weren’t just dodgy, they were dangerous death traps.

So Phil, with Kevin’s help, needed to get rid of the motors immediately so no one would get hurt because of them.

They managed to crush two of the vehicles but before they could stop her, Denise sold the third to Yolande Trueman (Angela Wynter).

Kevin knew he had to get rid of the car, so he was about to steal it when Shirley tried to stop him.

He had little time to get it sorted, so dragged her along with him and drove off in the car.

Kevin’s plan was to pretend Yolande’s car had been stolen by joyriders by driving it around for a while before setting it alight.

He and Shirley were enjoying driving the car around in circles at high speed when he suddenly lost control.

The next thing fans knew, the car was flung up into the air and crashed into a pile of debris.

Kevin was impaled by a large metal pole and tragically died in Shirley’s arms.

When Denise found out what happened, she rushed to find where they were and kissed her now-dead husband before bursting into tears.

The last time Daniels was seen in EastEnders was in 2008 when Kevin’s body was lying in a mortuary.
