The BIG DEBATE!
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!
