Sharon Mitchell races Mel Owen to stop her telling Phil Mitchell her secret and Chantelle Atkins is the last to know the truth about husband Gray Atkins.
Sharon Mitchell sees her world start to collapse around her in Tuesday’s episode of EastEnders (7.30 pm, see our TV Guide for full listings). As a vengeful Mel Owen’s party for Sharon and Louise Mitchell kicks off, a terrified Sharon threatens Mel that if she outs her baby secret, she’ll reveal that Mel harboured her criminal son Hunter Owen before he died.
When Mel is unconcerned by Sharon’s threats, Sharon’s panic starts to rise as Mel reveals her next move. A horrified Sharon is stunned when Mel insists that as soon as Sharon’s hubby Phil Mitchell returns to the Square she’s going to tell him that Sharon’s baby isn’t his…
Determined to get to Phil before Mel does, Sharon sneaks away from the party and gets in her car to meet Phil at the airport. Mel, however, soon twigs what that Sharon has fled to meet Phil. With Mel hot on Sharon’s heels, Keanu attempts to contact his ex-lover to warn her.
When Sharon is pulled over by the police, she panics, knowing she has to get going and fast. After making up an excuse she manages to get rid of the police and continues her bid to get to the airport. Mel is also racing to get there, but she wants to make sure everyone knows about Sharon’s betrayal. Calling Billy Mitchell at the club, she tells him to put her on speaker phone next to the microphone as she has an announcement to make… Will Sharon and Keanu’s secret be exposed to most of the Square?
Karen Taylor agrees to babysit for daughter Chantelle Atkins, who is grateful. When Chantelle bumps into Denise Fox she’s surprised to find out that her husband Gray Atkins has been in a fight. Not wanting to let Denise know that she doesn’t know what’s going on in her own household, she covers, making out that he’s shared the news with her.
Also, Linda Carter and Mick Carter have a heart-to-heart as they wait for their son Ollie Carter’s assessment to finish.
EastEnders continues on BBC1 on Thursday at 7.30 pm
