Last night's EastEnders saw Mel Owen delivering some gritty home truths in the Queen Vic...

EastEnders fans have been left thrilled after Mel Owen lashed out at her fellow Walford residents in the middle of the Queen Vic last night.

The scene came after Mel had been to court for son Hunter’s plea hearing, which hadn’t quite gone to plan.

At the start of the episode Mel was desperately trying to get Hunter’s lawyer to see if they could find a way to get her son out on bail.

Hunter is in court for his hearing

However, not only was that never going to happen, Mel was later stunned when she sat in court watching her son take the the stand… only for him to make a shock guilty plea.

With Mel’s world crashing down around her, she desperately tried to understand why Hunter had just made sure he’d spend the foreseeable future in prison.

As she visited him in prison after the hearing, Mel confronted her killer son about why he had just confessed in court to killing Ray Kelly in cold blood.

Fans loved Mel’s character assassination in the pub last night…

When Mel asked Hunter why he pleaded guilty his rely was simple… “Because I am!”.

But that wasn’t the end of the drama for the evening… Mel returned to Albert Square a broken woman and decided to head to the pub to drown her sorrows.

As she downed vodka she realised the whole pub was watching her every move, and it didnt take long for her amazing alcohol-fulled rant to begin

Linda Carter was the first to take pity on Mel… telling her that no on was judging her.

But before long a fight broke out as Mel delivered some epic – and totally on the point – home truths to everyone in the pub, and fans couldn’t get enough…

But where does Mel go from here?

Her son is set to be locked up for a very long time, Ray is dead, and her relationship with Jack Branning is broken beyond repair.

Can Mel pick up the pieces of her life and put them back together?
