Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) has had a lot on her plate in EastEnders as of late, but there’s plenty more conflict ahead for the matriarch, as the results of the DNA test come back, confirming whether Phil (Steve McFadden) or Keanu (Danny Walters) is the father of her unborn child.
During Phil’s trip to Spain last year, Sharon found herself attracted to Keanu — and it soon became apparent that the young lad felt the same way. The two engaged in a steamy affair, but Phil’s impromptu arrival back in Walford ultimately put an end to their fling.
In spite of their separation, it was clear that they still had feelings for one another, and — after another bunk up in The Arches — Sharon discovered that she was pregnant. Of course, matters were complicated further when it was revealed that Louise (Tilly Keeper) was also pregnant — and with Keanu being the father of Lou’s child, it’s safe to say Sharon found herself in quite the predicament.
She managed to convince Keanu to keep shtum about their affair by telling him that her baby is Phil’s, but it soon became clear the Mitchell matriarch isn’t a hundred percent sure and, as a result, she sent off a DNA test to get some answers.
In the upcoming episodes, the results of this DNA test arrive back, and it’s safe to say that Sharon is extremely on-edge.
Will she discover the identity of the father of her unborn child? If so, how will she react when she finds out?
Keanu or Phil? That is the question.
