sEver since Vincent Hubbard (Richard Blackwood) floored Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) the other month, we’ve been waiting for a rematch. Was it just a lucky punch from Vincent? Or did it look like Phil’s days as Walford’s resident hard man were numbered?
Well, it seems Phil isn’t out for the count just yet. Mere days after lashing out at Max Branning in the middle of the Square, tough nut Phil is at it again – and this time Vincent is back in his sights.
The reason for the showdown comes after Vincent dares to change the name of the Albert to Pearls. When Vincent heads out to check on the bar, he’s caught off guard by Phil who beats him up. With the score now standing at Hubbard 1 – Mitchell 1, will Vincent now listen to Phil’s warning to not disrespect his family again?
