STEPHEN Griffiths: Shelley Armitage, Kenneth Valentine and EastEnders loses the plot…

Police have confirmed that body parts found in River Aire belong to missing woman Shelley Armitage. But how can Armitage be billed was she a woman or a prostiute?

The Mail’s headline says “prostitute”. Channel 4 says “woman”. The Guardian delivers : “Bradford murders: remains of second woman found”

What says Mr Griffith’s mum, Moira?

Daily Express : “CROSSBOW CANNIBAL MUM SPEAKS”

Convicted benefits fraudster Moira Griffiths had not been seen since her 40-year-old son was arrested at his flat in Bradford last Monday.

Forget the cannibal killer, this woman’s cheated the system. Perspective is all.

Earlier, Mrs Griffiths said: “I think what they have said he has done is horrible and shocking. It makes me feel horrible just thinking about it. I think I’m still in shock.”

As she left her shabby one-bed flat in Dewsbury, West Yorks, she revealed that she hadn’t spoken to Griffiths since he was charged over the murders of Suzanne Blamires, 36, Ms Armitage, 31, and Susan Rushworth, 43. She said: “I haven’t seen him for years. I moved here and he began to lose touch.”

As is EastEnders. Can you tell fact from fiction?

And a crossbow?

From there, he would drive her away to a remote location and force her to pray for God’s forgiveness.

After she attempts to run away, Lucas gives chase and creating a ligature with his tie – as he previously did while killing his wife’s ex Owen – he would then seemingly strangle the innocent girl to death.

And the actress dies in real life?

A spokesperson for the BBC soap told Digital Spy: “EastEnders storylines are written many months in advance and any similarity to real-life events is coincidental.”

What?! The show set about a London square where no one lives in a stable family with a strong male rodel model, no-one works in the City and no-one’s called
