PHIL VS JAY In a dra­matic two-han­der, Eas­ten­ders’ Phil shocked young Jay by re­veal­ing that he’d killed the lad’s bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther in the car lot fire years back! Are Jay’s days as a Mitchell num­bered?

Steve Mc­fad­den [Phil] is my favourite actor on the show, and I’ve al­ways been im­pressed with Jamie Borth­wick [Jay], too. It was a treat watch­ing this tal­ented pair share the screen. Dawn, Coven­try

I think Jay fits per­fectly into the Mitchell clan – you for­get that he and Ben aren’t real broth­ers. But I don’t see how things can ever be the same again. Jay will want noth­ing more to do with Phil, and I worry he’ll dis­tance him­self from the rest of the fam­ily. Mary

I hated it when the writ­ers de­cided Denise and Kim were not re­ally sis­ters, and I hate that they’re do­ing some­thing sim­i­lar with Jay and his dad. Jase’s death had a huge ef­fect on Jay, and inf lu­enced the man he is to­day. I feel like I’ve been robbed of that his­tory. Nigel, Here­ford­shire Don’t worry, Nigel, that mys­te­ri­ous phone call at the end re­vealed that all is not as it seems… I can’t be­lieve that Phil’s story was a pack of lies! Who­ever was on the phone must have a strong hold over him. Why else would he put poor Jay through such a trau­matic or­deal? Mar­lene

I’ve seen a lot of com­ments from peo­ple on Face­book who think that Max is black­mail­ing Phil so he can claim the car lot – but I’m not sure I buy it. Would the great Phil Mitchell re­ally cower be­fore slimy Max? Lorna, Es­sex I think it’s safe to as­sume Phil is some­where on Max’s very long hit list!
