According to Buzz Bingo, EastEnders is the soap most likely to kill some off with suicide by overdosing on a substance, with six characters using the grisly method.
In 1989, Donna Ludlow killed herself with a heroin overdose, while Clive Owen overdosed on drugs in 1997.
Ethel Skinner had her best friend Dot Cotton assist her suicide with a drug overdose in 2000, and legend Peggy Mitchell killed herself with drugs in 2016 after battling cancer.
In comparison, only two Corrie and Emmerdale characters respectively have taken their lives with an overdose.
Could Mick be about to end his life in heartbreaking scenes?
EastEnders continues on Monday at 8pm on BBC.
