Spoilers: Sharon and Phil buy the Vic in EastEnders as the future is revealed


It seems that celebrations will be in store for Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) and Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) in EastEnders, as during tonight’s episode, the queen returns to Walford, and seemingly decides to follow through with her husband’s plan to buy the Queen Vic.

Sharon hightailed it out of Walford earlier this year following the tragic death of her beloved son Dennis (Bleu Landau), but she makes what will no doubt be an iconic return during tonight’s instalment — which leaves Phil at a loss for words.

Upon her return, she catches up with Phil — that is, until they’re interrupted by Ben (Max Bowden), who is intent on discussing the approaching job he’s set to undertake with his dad.

Meanwhile, Sharon struggles to adjust to life back in Albert Square, and thus she heads off to speak to Linda. She reveals to the current Queen Vic landlady that she wants to give things with Phil another go.

Linda soon gives her blessing to Sharon and Phil in regards to buying the Vic.

Later, Phil and Sharon share a drink together.

Will they sign on the dotted line and take over the iconic boozer?

Sharon could well have other things on her mind, as Karen (Lorraine Stanley) and Billy (Perry Fenwick) soon turn up, and it all gets a bit much for Sharon.

She helps Linda pack upstairs, but they soon come across some of Dennis’ belongings.

One to watch: Monday 25 May at 8pm on BBC One.
