Phil Mitchell has proven what a good Sith Lord he would make, after BBC Three bosses debuted a new skit to promote their switch to being an online-only broadcaster.
The Walford hardman, who is played by Steve McFadden, is seen being a dab hand with a lightsaber, as he smashes up Christian Cooke’s flat, in old scene that has received the CGI treatment.
Christian (John Partridge) also does his best Chewbacca roar, showing he’d also make a convincing Wookiee.
It isn’t the first time ‘EastEnders’ has helped promote BBC Three’s online move.
Last week, it squeezed in a scene involving Sonia Fowler being caught browsing the site by girlfriend Tina Carter.
Tina then commented: “Ain’t BBC Three a bit young for you? Oh wait, don't tell me - Bex told you she was watching something?"
While BBC Three used to air repeats of the show, UKTV channel W has picked up the rights to replay it each night at 10pm.
