And within hours of arriving in Walford, he’s set to catch the eye of young mum Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) however, Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) will reportedly warn her off getting involved with Dexter, telling her she needs to focus on her daughter Lexi – who Phil has custody of – rather than acting like a love struck teenager…

In upcoming episodes of EastEnders, we’ll see Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) continuing his fight to get custody of his granddaughter Lexi, who was of course taken into care after social services deemed that the baby’s mother Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) wasn’t capable of caring for the infant properly.
And later this week, after Phil learns that his son Ben – who is of course Lexi’s father – is to be tried for manslaughter rather than murder in the Heather Trott case, he will suggest that Ben and Lola get married, in order to formalize his status as Lexi’s granddad.
But not unreasonably, Lola’s horrified at the idea, given that she doesn’t even want Ben to know he’s Lexi’s dad. And her granddad Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) also doesn’t want Ben to have anything to do with the baby.
Speaking to Inside Soap magazine recently, a show insider said, “The moment Lexi was taken away was the worst time of Lola’s life… Read more & comment »
The BBC has been criticised for how social services have been portrayed in the EastEnders storyline which has seen teen mum Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) being left distraught after her baby daughter Lexi was taking into care by social worker Trish.
Yesterday, The Guardian reported that the British Association of Social Workers (BASW) has complained over how social workers have been portrayed in the plotline.
Bridget Robb, the acting chief of the BASW, said, “It is disgraceful to see a publicly funded broadcaster deliberately spreading misinformation about the child protection process because it is too lazy and arrogant to get it right.
“We regularly give advice to programmes about social work storylines – we would like to know who advised EastEnders so badly.
“Social workers have a difficult enough job as it is… Read more & comment »

Lola made the admission while begging Phil to intervene and stop social services from taking the baby girl from her…
And though there was nothing Phil could do right then and there, as we reported yesterday, he’s set to mastermind a plan to get custody of his granddaughter by becoming engaged to Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) in order to show the social services that he’s a fit guardian for the baby.
Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) is of course Lexi’s great-grandfather, which makes for a somewhat complex – not to mention interbred – family tree! Read more & comment »
