'EastEnders' Spoiler: Phil Mitchell Meets His Match? Kathy Beale's Husband Gavin Arrives In Walford

‘EastEnders’ fans are set to witness a dramatic showdown in tonight’s (Friday 2 October) episode, when Phil Mitchell finally meets his match.

While Kathy Beale is pleased to be back in Albert Square, her husband Gavin isn’t impressed, especially as Phil orchestrated Kathy’s return.

Now, he’s set to confront the hardman, and it seems like Phil might have finally met his match.

‘EastEnders’ bosses have previously explained that Gavin isn’t one to mess with, and executive producer Dominic Treadwell Collins has even labelled the Paul Nicholas’s character “the most manipulative and dangerous ‘EastEnders’ villain we’ve ever had”.

“He makes Archie Mitchell look like a Care Bear,” he said in September.

Phil and Gavin haven't exactly seen eye-to-eye

It’s not all about Phil vs. Gavin though, as this week has seen the climax of Max Branning’s murder trial, and subsequent exit.

Actor Jake Wood is taking a 12 month break from the soap, and he’s certainly gone out with a bang, thanks to Max’s decision to go on the run after being found guilty of murder.

Watch ‘EastEnders’ tonight to see the action unfold.
