A drunk Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) is to make a pass at former love Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) after a reunion with her son Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) doesn’t go to plan.
In scenes to be shown on Friday 16 May, Shirley is to hit the bottle after a run-in with her son and sets off to retrieve some keepsakes of her kids. A passing Phil is left to pick up the pieces after scooping Shirl off the pavement outside the restaurant. But she responds by drunkenly trying to kiss him. Phil is, of course, currently in a relationship with Sharon (Letitia Dean) – so will he end up returning Shirl’s advances?
