Phil Mitchell on DEADLY REVENGE mission in EastEnders

Phil wants answers from Kat in EastEnders

Phil demands the truth from Kat

Phil Mitchell is on a deadly revenge mission in EastEnders next week as he tries to discover who nearly killed him - and Kat is in the firing line!

The hard man was left in a coma after Stacey (Lacey Turner) whacked him over the head with a wrench at the Arches to stop him from beating up her husband Martin Fowler (James Bye).

Next week in EastEnders Phil (Steve McFadden) is released from hospital and he’s less than impressed when he wanders in on a surprise “welcome home” party arranged by his son Ben.

Phil starts asking Ben lots of questions, namely what was he arguing about with Jay (Jamie Borthwick) in the hospital? We know of course that they were arguing over the fact that Jay found Ben about to murder Phil!

Sneaky Ben denies a row ever happen, but before he can warn Jay, Phil gets there and starts questioning Jay over the argument with Ben! What will Jay tell him?

Phil, who’s certainly having a busy week, then starts asking Keegan questions about where his brother Keanu is with his pregnant girlfriend Louise. Ben is of course trying to frame Keanu for the attack.

Phil, who’s getting angrier by the minute, then visits the scene of the crime - the Arches - hoping it will jog his memory. And it does!

As his foggy memory begins to return he heads off to confront Kat (Jessie Wallace).

Kat is half frightened to death when she discovers a menacing Phil in her kitchen. What has Phil remembered? Has he worked out it was Kat’s cousin Stacey who attacked him? Will he use violence to force Kat to tell him the truth? And when will he clock what Ben’s been up to?

EastEnders continues on BBC1.
