Over the past several months, viewers have seen Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) torn apart by her past in the search for her birth father – after losing her real mother Carol to cancer without being able to say her goodbyes.
In scenes soon to air next week, Sharon discovers where her real father is and she and Phil (Steve McFadden) decide to pay him a visit at a rundown housing estate.
She watches as the man she believes to be her father screams at a group of young kids sitting on his wall and then throws an empty beer can at them. After summoning up the courage to confront him, she decides to knock on his door.
Gordon (played by Stephen Marcus who starred in Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels), who Sharon believes is her father, opens it to find Sharon who claim that she is his daughter.
He invites her in and after speaking, they later return to Walford where they continue to talk.
Sharon then introduces him to Roxy, Ronnie, Jay and Abi who are all stunned when she tells them that her father has come to stay.
EastEnders airs these scenes on Tuesday 2 June 2015 at 7:30pm on BBC One.
