Is this the moment when Ben Mitchell discovers that his mum Kathy is actually still alive?
For over a decade, Ben has been under the impression that Kathy was killed in a road accident in South Africa. But as viewers learned back in February, Kathy is very much in the land of the living – and in need of ex-husband Phil’s assistance.
Kathy has now got closer to home than ever before after returning to Albert Square in order to plead with Phil for help. Tonight, a fuming Phil takes desperate action and locks Kathy in the Arches, leaving her begging to be released.
Later in the day, Phil returns to the garage, but gets a shock when Ben arrives. Is Kathy’s big secret about to be blown? And will Ben get the shock of his life in the process?
