Former alcoholic Phil Mitchell is set to fall off the wagon again, in scenes set to air in the coming weeks.
In dramatic scenes last month, Phil revealed that when Gavin took him hostage, he put a bottle of scotch in front of him, causing Phil to go back to old habits.
Steve McFadden (who plays Phil) was seen filming dramatic scenes involving his alter-ego drinking in the street, shouting at pedestrians.
Will Sharon or the rest of the Mitchell clan be able to help Phil?
With plenty of Mitchell family drama later this year – such as Ronnie’s arrest for the murder of Carl White – it would appear Phil will crack under pressure to keep the family united.
EastEnders boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins recently teased: “This is the start of a massive storyline for Steve McFadden that will take us right the way through to Easter.”
These scenes are expected to air later this year.
