The BBC has released images that show Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) fighting for his life following Tuesday’s car crash.
In scenes to be shown in tonight’s episode (BBC1, 7.30pm), Phil will be airlifted to hospital by helicopter as a result of the collision that saw him hurled through a windscreen. But family members including Billy and Lola will be left fearing that Phil will not recover from his injuries.
Steve McFadden said of this latest ordeal: “Phil’s like the Black Knight from Monty Python who keeps soldiering on despite getting his arms and legs chopped off.
“But this ordeal weakens him. Phil’s getting older and he’s definitely more vulnerable.”
