Mel's plan to expose Sharon's baby secret starts to unravel tonight...
Tonight’s EastEnders marks the start of a huge week in Walford as Mel Owen’s plan to ruin the Mitchells starts to take hold.
EastEnders fans will know that Mel has unearthed the huge secret that Keanu Taylor is the father of Sharon Mitchell’s baby, and not her husband Phil like everyone thinks.
But instead of going straight to Phil with her bombshell, Mel has been blackmailing Sharon for everything she has got… including a villa in Portugal.
Tonight’s EastEnders (8pm, see our TV guide for full listings) sees the joint party that Mel has organised for Sharon’s 50th celebrations, and also Louise Mitchell’s 18th.
But while the rest of Walford think Mel is throwing a party for the pair to celebrate their milestone birthdays, Keanu is well aware that this is all part of Mel’s grand plan.
While Sharon realises something isn’t right and that Mel is up to her old tricks, Louise is revelling in the attention at the party.
Sharon panics tonight when she gets a call from Phil – Mel’s told him that Sharon is selling the E20 and he wants to know why, so he’s on his way back to Walford to get answers.
Knowing that Phil being back in Albert Square gives Mel more chance to reveal that news he’s not about to become a daddy after all, Sharon rushes to tell Keanu the news and demands he takes Louise as far away from the Square as he can.
But his plan is soon ruined when Louise is in the mood to party and soon everyone is at the E20… with Mel’s revelation sitting like a ticking time bomb.
Tomorrow’s EastEnders sees Mel’s plan start to unravel when Sharon escapes the party to meet Phil from the airports desperate to get to him before Mel does.
But Mel works out that Sharon is missing and a car chase begins as the women both rush to get to Phil first.
Knowing that time is running out, Mel calls Billy and asks him to put her phone up to the microphone at the party… is she about to reveal the truth to the whole party?
By Thursday Mel is more determined than ever to get revenge on the Mitchells, while Sharon is desperate to stop her family being torn apart.
Who will get to Phil first?
With actress Tamzin Outhwaite having already finished filming, EastEnders fans are convinced that Mel is going to die in the car chase on Thursday. But are they right?
Brace yourselves, this week’s EastEnders is definitely not one to be missed.
EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
