After months of rumours that it was in the pipeline, ‘EastEnders’ finally kicked off a storyline which will see Grant Mitchell’s secret love child revealed.
Monday (8 August) night’s episode saw his brother Phil discover the truth after finding the letter Michelle wrote Peggy before her death, which had found itself into the not-so-safe hands of Sharon.
The baby was conceived during a brief encounter between Grant and Michelle in 1995, and after reading the note, a suitably stunned Phil asked Sharon: “No more secrets? No more lies? Nice of Michelle to write to mum, wasn’t it?
“So when was you going to tell me, Sharon, eh? When was you going to tell me that Michelle has had Grant’s baby?”
Hmmm. Sorry Sharon, but he has a point.
Grant has made two fleeting visits to the Square so far this year, but each have included plenty of drama.
