Grant Mitchell is back in EastEnders and after learning that nothing more can be done to help Peggy, he turns to an old flame for support... An old relationship that has caused his family untold trauma in the past.

As Sharon tries to help Grant, the memories flood back between the pair between the pair and the tension starts to build. Will they be able to resist temptation?


EastEnders fans will recall that Grant and Sharon got married in 1991, but she soon wondered if she’d married the wrong brother and began to have an affair with Phil.

Her marriage with Grant came to an explosive end back in 1994 when her affair with Phil was revealed after Grant discovered a tape containing a conversation between Michelle and Sharon discussing the affair. The tape was played at Phil and Kathy’s engagement party, publicising the affair to everyone in Albert Square!
