EastEnders fans fear Phil Mitchell exit as Walford icon faces life in prison

EastEnders fans have shared their fears that Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) could be leaving Albert Square for good after he revealed he could be facing “life” in prison.

During Friday’s instalment of the popular BBC One soap, viewers were left on the edges of their seat as they waited to hear how the soap legend was going to work his way out of jail again.

Concerns started to rise when he returned with his solicitor Ritchie Scott who broke the bad news to him in prison.

Despite handing himself in to the police and the possibility that the police didn’t have any evidence the doting dad was behind the crime, Phil was still looking at life in prison.

Desperate to know the truth, he demanded: “Come of Ritchie, stop messing around. What am I looking at? Five years? Worse – seven? They ain’t got any evidence, have they?”

“If they get it, or they’ve got it, they’re saying you’ll see out the rest of your days behind bars,” she admitted.

Luckily, Phil was released on bail while the officers continue the investigation, as he rushed back to his appartment to see Kat Slater (Jessica Wallace) and little Raymond Dawkins (Michael Jose Pomares Clixte).
