EastEnders fans have been wondering when Phil (played by Steve McFadden) would be coming back from Spain.
Phil has been in Spain since the end of August, but will be back at the end of this month.
Viewers already knew Phil would be back around Christmas after being spotted filming scenes for Mel Owen and Ray Kelly’s New Year wedding.
However, the exact return date had not been confirmed.
Ever since Phil’s departure, Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) has been playing away with 19-year-old Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).
Her affair is still a secret, but could Phil find out as part of his comeback storyline?
Sharon has now cut ties with Keanu after his mother Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) issued a warning for her to stay away.
The affair could even be revealed as part of this year’s Christmas plot.
Just a few weeks back, EastEnders fans watched Keanu and Sharon smooching in the kitchen before things became heated and moved to their living room.
However, as Keanu left, Sharon heard a chair moving in the kitchen and believed she may have been discovered by Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper).
Calling out to see who else was in the house, Sharon crept into the kitchen to find Denny (Bleu Landau) sitting down at the table.
Sharon said: “Denny?” as he pulled out his headphones and replied: “What?”
She continued: “I’ll put the tea on in 10,” as Denny said: “Cheers!”
But did Denny really see everything that was going on between Keanu and Sharon? Is he pretending not to know?
If Denny were to see the pair’s shenanigans, he could use it against Sharon and wouldn’t be the first time the schoolboy has been embroiled in a blackmail plot.
It comes after it was teased Denny could die in this year’s Christmas storyline after Sharon swore on his life while lying to Louise.
She insisted on her son’s life nothing was going on between her and Keanu.
Following Denny’s involvement with the Walford gang and several repercussions and attacks, it wouldn’t be unlikely for Denny to suffer an attack once more – this time proving fatal.
Louise was put off the scent of Sharon’s affair earlier this year, but Denny has yet to reveal what he knows.
