‘EastEnders’ Spoilers: Phil Mitchell Could Be A Good Dad To Denise’s Baby, Declares Steve McFadden

Is Phil really up to the challenge?

Steve McFadden has given his verdict on one of his current ‘EastEnders’ storylines, insisting that Phil Mitchell could be a good dad to Denise Fox’s baby.

Denise recently discovered that she’s pregnant with Phil’s baby following a one-night stand, and while he’s yet to find out that he’s going to be a father again, Steve said he reckons he could be up to the challenge, despite his current health problems.

Denise is yet to break the news to an unsuspecting Phil 

“He does do it for the right reason. As long as what he thinks is right at that moment for his nearest and dearest.”

Hmmm. We’ll have to wait and see on this one.

There’s a lot going on in Walford at the moment, and unless you’ve been living under a rock then you’ll probably know a lot of characters are about to depart.

Two of them are Mitchell family staples, and rumour has it, they’re being killed off in a huge festive storyline. Don’t panic though - it’s not Phil. Phew.
