Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) is set to harbour secret guilt in EastEnders, after her role in Lisa Fowler's (Lucy Benjamin) abrupt exit.


After blackmailing Sharon's fiancé, Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) for money, gambling addict Lisa was keen to flee Walford and fly back to Portugal with Keanu's daughter Peggy, whose mother is Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper).

But with Keanu desperate to keep hold of Peggy, he tried his best to stop her and Lisa from leaving. What Keanu doesn't yet know is that Sharon and family friend Martin Fowler (James Bye) helped Lisa escape; and next week, Sharon struggles to cope with her guilt as Keanu seeks ways to win Peggy back.

With Keanu still hellbent, Sharon ponders whether she should come clean - but she still hasn't owned up by the time Keanu blames Martin and throws him out of the house. However, soon after, Keanu finds a voicemail from Lisa on Sharon's phone, and it looks like her betrayal is about to be exposed.

Will Keanu be able to forgive Sharon? That remains to be seen, as does the possibility of Keanu ever seeing his little girl again.
