Two decades on from the ‘Sharongate’ love triangle and they’re at it again. Yes, Sharon (Letitia Dean) and Phil (Steve McFadden) will get close once more, 20 years after their explosive affair.
Back in the early ‘90s, Sharon memorably cheated on husband Grant with his brother, only for their trysts to be exposed to a crowded gathering at the Queen Vic. Fast forward to 2013 and Sharon and Phil are set to share a kiss following an emotionally fraught day that finds Lola (Danielle Harold) doing a runner with baby Lexi.
Over New Year, Phil made it plain to Sharon’s current squeeze Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) that he wanted to win her back. Viewers saw Sharon then receive marriage proposals from both Phil and Jack, only for her to then accept the latter’s offer.
But with Sharon and Phil giving in to temptation again, what will this mean for Jack? Fans can see the scenes play out next month on BBC1.
