Filming began this week for her return as Sharon Watts who was last seen on screen six years ago. The Mirror newspaper has reported that her return sees her enlist the help of former lover Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).
The article notes that her son, Dennis Rickman Jr, has been kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend. Pictures taken this week show both actors involved in a dramatic car chase being filmed on location.
“Sharon is petrified of losing her son. She has nowhere else to turn so as a last resort she goes to Phil. They have a lot of history together and he agrees to help, but it’s no easy task.” – A source speaking to The Mirror
Although no date has been given yet, her first scenes are expected to screen in late August.
