EastEnders fans are fearing the worst for missing Phil Mitchell following Dennis' death.

Phil was partly responsible for causing the devastating boat crash that led to the 13-year-old losing his life in the 35th anniversary drama.

He knocked the captain out during a fight with Keanu Taylor before knocking into the wheel and causing the boat to crash.

Phil broke down as he watched his adoptive son being pronounced dead and covered with a blanket.

But the Walford hardman was nowhere to be seen during Monday night's episode during the aftermath of Denny's death.

While walking through the Square, Billy Mitchell told Karen Taylor that he had still not heard from Phil after smashing him over the head.

He said: "I still Can't get over Phil. I still don't know if he knows about Denny."

Jay Brown also told Ben Mitchell that his dad "can look after himself" after discovering what happened with Keanu.

EastEnders viewers want to know what happened to Phil after the boat crash.

Taking to Twitter , one viewer asked: "Where is Phil"

"Where’s Phil though," added another.

A third said: "Has Phil run off back to Portugal again?"

"So is Phil going to face any consequences for causing the boat to crash, or is he going to get away with it as usual," said a fourth.

Ben was having problems with his hearing
Stuart started getting angry

Phil has gone missing as his family reels from the death of Dennis - with son Ben in desperate need of help after losing his hearing.

Ben revealed to Jay that he was having problems after hitting his head when he went overboard but insisted it was just temporary.

Explaining that he learned to lip read in prison when his hearing aid was stolen, Ben said: "I got good at pretending I could hear. I'll be alright."

Stuart gave Ben a worrying warning

But furious Stuart started threatening Ben after discovering that Callum has gone missing.

Ben held his ears while enduring agonising pain as Jay tried to calm Stuart down.

Grabbing Ben, Stuart said: "If anything happens to my brother you’re dead. Can you hear me? I will kill you."

Will Ben find Callum? And will he get help for his hearing problem?
