EastEnders’ hardman Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) goes after the men responsible for his girlfriend Sharon Rickman’s (Letitia Dean) attack in tonight’s episode.
Sharon is currently in hospital after intervening when two masked intruders targeted her new bar earlier this week.
The concluding moments of last night’s (17 June) episode saw Phil confide in Shirley (Linda Henry) that he arranged the break-in but had not intended for Sharon to come to any harm. Instead, he was trying to prove to her that she needed to employ some doormen to manage security at The Albert.
In a rare Wednesday outing for the BBC soap , Phil lures the two men he enlisted to turn over The Albert to the Arches, where he proceeds to take matters into his own hands. However, Shirley interrupts Phil and tries to talk him down before things go too far but will she succeed?
