EastEnders fans claim Sharon and Phil will get back together after his shock return at Denny’s funeral


EASTENDERS fans are convinced Sharon Watts will take back estranged husband Phil Mitchell after he made a shock comeback to Walford.

The hardman - who is played by actor Steve McFadden in the BBC soap - disappeared after causing the boat crash that claimed his adopted son Dennis Mitchell’s life.

Tonight’s episode saw Dennis laid to rest by his devastated mum Sharon.

A choked up Sharon couldn’t get the words out so asked Ian to read the eulogy for her instead.

He said: “When my beautiful baby came into this world I was still getting used to life without his dad.

“He used to reach for my finger and hold it so tightly that I knew everything was going to be OK. He loved his football and hated losing, he liked to argue and get his own way. No was a word Dennis didn't understand.

“He could get angry but it never lasted and when he wanted to say sorry he gave the best hugs. He was my everything. I was so proud of the man he was becoming. We were going to go and start a new life together and then someone ripped that away from me.

“He was gone without even a goodbye. Wherever you are, looking at us probably aiming a catapult, know the world is now quieter. Know you were loved.”

Later in the pub after a meltdown at Linda over pizza, Sharon tried to get back to focusing on Denny.

But as she got ready to head home after the wake she was left shocked when Phil walked through the doors.

And even though Sharon has been blaming him for Denny’s death, fans think it will lead to them getting back together.

One wrote: "Sharon is definitely going to take Phil back isn't she?"

A second said: "Anyone else reckon Sharon and Phil are going to have a massive showdown then kiss and make up?"
