EastEnders hardman Phil Mitchell left for dead after argument spirals out of control – The Sun

EASTENDERS hardman Phil Mitchell will be left for dead in a shocking plot twist.

He could finally reach a grisly end after 29 years on the show, The Sun can reveal.

Phil — played by Steve McFadden, 60 — will be left “fighting for his life” when a row with an Albert Square resident spirals out of control.

Among the prime suspects are son Ben, played by Max Bowden, girlfriend Sharon (Letitia Dean) and Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).

Walford mechanic Phil finds himself in danger when he goes in search of those responsible for the theft of his money laundering proceeds.

Ben is also determined to fleece him while Sharon is desperate to keep her affair with Keanu a secret.

A BBC source said: “Things have been bubbling for a while with those keeping secrets from Phil.

“With him oblivious to it all and looking forward to becoming a father and grandfather again, life couldn’t be looking more perfect.

“But secrets never stay secret for long in Albert Square.

“As everything comes to a head, certain truths will be revealed, but others remain hidden — for now.

An argument ensues and quickly escalates, forcing those involved to fight their corner, leaving Phil fighting for his life.”

Steve has played Phil on the BBC One soap since 1990.
