Heartbreak for Sharon? Eastenders
Is The new phil a man who wants her?
Story So far
Phil Mitchell is the recovering alcoholic with the new liver, Sharon is his wife, constantly struggling to cope with the hell that Phil puts her through, sometimes on a daily basis.
Their marriage has had glimpses of light, one of the recent ones being Phil’s desire to adopt Sharon’s son, Dennis. Sharon thought it was a beautiful gesture. Or was it Phil the bully, the liar and the cheat, seeing himself in Dennis and wanting to claim the boy as his own?
Sharon and Phil have been through an emotional wringer in the past few months and nothing changes for Sharon this fortnight. It’s different for Phil, though. ‘He is ecstatic,’ our Eastenders insider reveals, ‘and so is Dennis because they have got a date for the adoption hearing.’ Sharon’s not exactly in the mood to celebrate, though. Is it because she has gone right off the idea of Phil adopting her son?
Actually, Sharon is upset because she believes Phil has forgotten their third wedding anniversary. The gorgeous flowers in her kitchen aren’t for her, they’re Michelle’s (more on that drama on page 23). Now Sharon would really like Phil to show her that she is appreciated!
Ever since his liver transplant, Phil has been trying to put right his many wrongs. In some cases, he’s too late. But he still has time to show Sharon that he does love her. That’s if he does… If Sharon thinks he doesn’t, the adoption proceedings will be off – and so will she be, we think – and she’ll take Dennis with her!
Sharon would love these flowers to be for her but they are actually for Michelle!
Phil tells Dennis his adoption is going ahead. But is it?
