Sharon Mitchell gets the fright of her life when she comes face-to-face with a very much alive Kathy Beale in EastEnders – and who can blame her for being shocked?

It’s not the first time someone in Sharon’s past has returned from the dead; she also had to deal with the resurrection of dad Den Watts.

However, this return sparks a different emotion because as Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) begins to open up about where she’s been, a fuming Sharon (Letitia Dean) warns her to leave Walford.

A desperate Kathy lashes out and a full-on fight kicks off, with the older woman smashing Sharon’s head on the roof of a car.
