EastEnders: Billy punches Phil in shock confrontation

The pair come to blows prior to tonight's gas explosion

Week 36 - Phil and Billy1

Now here’s something you don’t see every day – Billy Mitchell getting one over on Phil! Used to be being belittled by his family, Billy will surprise everyone on tonight’s EastEnders when he punches the Walford hard man and sends him crashing to the sofa.


Billy is, of course, furious with Phil for his betrayal of Jay following recent revelations concerning the lad’s parentage. As fans know, Phil has spun Jay a story that Jase Dyer wasn’t his real father – his actual dad having died in a fire at the car lot started by Phil himself.

But Phil (who is colluding with Jay’s granddad Bert) knows that his so-called confession is a terrible lie, not that Billy and Jay are aware of this.

Week 36 - Phil and Billy

This evening’s episode of the BBC1 soap sees Billy storming round to Phil’s house in order to confront him, only to find himself at a loss for words. Losing his temper, Billy soon lets his fists do the talking.

But will he regret his actions? After all, a gas explosion looks set to rip through the Square this week – and when Phil goes missing, it’s suspected that he could be one of the casualties…
