The BBC has released a new promo that shows Albert Square doyennes Kathy and Sharon coming to blows after meeting for the first time in over a decade.
As viewers know, Phil has been doing his best to keep news of Kathy’s resurrection from his nearest and dearest. But a suspicious Sharon will discover the truth when she tracks Kathy down to the Arches.
Shock scenes will see Sharon label Kathy a psychopath for faking her own death and leaving her sons in the lurch. And pretty soon, anger is turning into violence as Kathy starts to tear lumps out of Sharon and pin her to the bonnet of a car.
“I’ve always wanted to do something like that. I loved it,” says Gillian Taylforth of her EastEnders cat fight. “Letitia Dean told me to really go for it, which was great. Sharon has been saying to a very downtrodden Kathy that she should have stayed dead and that her boys don’t need her. So it was fantastic to see Kathy telling Sharon exactly what she thinks for a change. Tish and I had quite a laugh doing it.”
You can watch the trailer below. And beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on EastEnders.
