Sharon Mitchell (played by Letitia Dean) said a final farewell to her son Denny Rickman (Bleu Landau) tonight after he died tragically during the EastEnders 35th anniversary. However, Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) made an explosive return and in a strange twist will hand himself over to the police, but his fate could be sealed when a familiar face shows up at the last minute.
Phil Mitchell turned up unannounced and uninvited to Denny’s funeral tonight after Sharon specifically said she didn’t want any of the Mitchell family there.
Sharon had to be held back as she flew at her estranged husband in a rage.
The grieving mother still doesn’t know it was in fact Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) who was responsible for Denny’s death, but he has done a very good of keeping it a secret.
But Sharon will fly off the handle when she sees Phil, blaming him for Denny’s death.

Next week, however, Phil will hand himself in to the police saying he was responsible for the boat crash.
However, when a familiar face turns up, it will be make or break for Phil and it will be down to this person to determine his fate.
EastEnders fans will remember solicitor Ritchie Scott (Sian Webber) who has helped on a number of cases over the years on Albert Square.
She first appeared in Walford to advise Phil’s mother Peggy Mitchell (Barbara Windsor) ahead of Phil’s trial for armed robbery.
The last time Phil and Ritchie saw each other, they didn’t exactly leave things on the best terms, but could this jeopardise his case?
In 2015, Ritchie refused to help Phil when he was accused of tampering with brakes on a car and almost killing cousin Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack).
But when she said no, Phil decided to steal her book of criminal clients, threatening to release them.
Will Ritchie want to see Phil thrown in jail for good or is she coming to help?

The issue is, if Phil admits to the boat crash, he could be putting himself in the firing line to be arrested for Keanu’s attempted murder at Christmas.
When Phil found out Sharon’s baby was Keanu’s as a result of a long affair, the Mitchell boys went looking for blood.
But Ian found out Denny had been the reason Bobby Beale’s (Clay Milner Russell) brutal attack, locking him below deck.
How will Sharon react when she finally finds out the last person to see Denny and the reason her boy is dead is all because of Ian and his lies?

Dotty has a reputation for using her manipulative ways to get whatever she wants.
But how far will Ian go to stop her telling anyone about what really happened at the boat party?
Will Dotty tell Sharon before Ian has the chance to stop her?
