Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) has been a very naughty boy in recent EastEnders scenes, and he may be set to be caught out if he doesn’t play his cards right.

Phil made the mistake of sleeping with Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit) after a row with fiancé Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace), which could prove more costly than he initially anticipated.

It was clear that his betrayal was bothering him, and soon ex-wife Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) had picked up on his sour mood, pointing out that only money or a woman could leave him feeling like that.

She soon deduced that he had slept with someone, and though Phil remained tight lipped over who it was, Sharon urged him to tell Kat, before she found out elsewhere.

Though Phil insisted she would never find out, Sharon pointed out that those were famous last words, and it would soon transpire that she was right.

Elsewhere, Emma was having her own problems, with Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) still refusing to let her see granddaughter Lexi (Isabella Brown).

She was desperate to keep Lexi in her life, despite having walked out on Lola just weeks before her death, and was hurt that ben wouldn’t give her a chance.

However, she was soon struck with an idea, and a sure fire way to get what she wanted.

Phil was horrified to see that Emma had paid him a visit, while Kat was in the room next door.

He urged her to keep her voice down as she demanded that Phil and Ben allow her to see Lexi.

With their night of passion hanging over them, Emma revealed just how low she was prepared to sink to get what she wanted.

She told Phil, in no uncertain terms, that if he didn’t let her see Lexi, then she would tell Kat everything.

Is Phil and Kat’s relationship set to be destroyed by Emma’s bombshell, or will Phil find a way to keep her quiet?
