More than 100 viewers complained last week about Eastenders killer Lucas Johnson’s implied murder of collie dog Sugar.

But hardly any contacted the Beeb after he murdered two humans.

On Wednesday last week Lucas is believed to have sent Sugar to the big kennel in the sky after she started sniffing round the spot where he buried Owen Turner.

Shocked fans, 103 of them, called in to protest but only a “handful? bothered when he bumped off Trina and Owen.

The BBC was forced to put out a statement saying the show: “does not condone the killing of dogs…or people?.

A spokesman said: “Although it is never explicit that Sugar dies, the story does indeed suggest that Lucas has killed her.

“This behaviour is completely in keeping with his character.?
