'EastEnders': Sharon Mitchell Discovers Phil Is The Father Of Denise Fox's Baby

It was the best duff duff they've had in ages.

EastEnders’ aired some explosive scenes on Tuesday (10 January) night, as Sharon Mitchell accidentally discovered her husband Phil is the father of Densie Fox’s baby.

Denise (Diane Parrish) has been keeping the identity of her unborn son’s father a secret, having had a one night stand with Phil (Steve McFadden) while he was on a break from Sharon (Letitia Dean) last year.

However, she was forced to confess who’d got her pregnant to Shirley Carter (Linda Henry), after the barmaid became suspicious she’d had an affair with her former lover Buster Briggs (Karl Howman).

Denise tearful confessed Phil had fathered her child to her friend while in the toilets of the Queen Vic, before swearing her to secrecy, not wanting Phil to have any involvement in the child’s life.

However, what both women didn’t see was that Sharon was actually in one of the toilet cubicles during the entire conversation.

The episode ended with Sharon in dumbstruck over the bombshell, with attention now turning to if she will confront Phil about it.

Either way, it looks set to be a dramatic few weeks for Denise, who has decided to give the baby up for adoption.

A recently released trailer teased that she will go into labour later this month, and also reject an offer from her sister Kim (Tameka Empson) to raise the baby as her own.

The drama continues on Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
