Sharon Rickman hasn’t been overly lucky in love of late, given that her former fiancé Jack Branning dumped her at the altar, and then her rekindled romance with Phil Mitchell hit the rocks after he learned of her addiction to painkillers…
However, recidivist girlfriend Sharon (Letitia Dean) isn’t finding it easy being a single woman, and in next week’s episodes, we’ll see that she’s desperate to heal the rift with Phil (Steve McFadden) and equally as keen that she and her son Dennis move back in with him… Read more & comment »
Fans of EastEnders will of course know that Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) is battling with her addiction to painkillers while trying to maintain the façade of normality for the benefit of those around her…

But this week, when Sharon yet again overdoses and lapses into unconsciousness, she puts little Lexi’s life at risk because when she passes out, the infant is unsupervised, which Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) discovers when he comes home unexpectedly… Read more & comment »
Albert Square resident Sharon Rickman is of course still smarting over being ditched at the altar by former fiancé Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) so the last she thing she needs right now is any extra stress…
But that’s exactly what she’s going to get when she finds R&R co-owner Janine Moon (Charlie Brooks) in the club’s office demanding to see the accounts.
A harassed Sharon (Letitia Dean) hastily scrambles the paperwork for Janine, however, she’s left red-faced when it becomes apparent that a lot of the bills are overdue. So, with barked instructions to sort it out from Janine, Sharon faces a huge workload this week… Read more & comment »

We reported last week that Kirsty Branning (Kierston Wareing) is set to become pregnant later this year, much to Max Branning’s horror…

Phil (Steve McFadden) and Tanya will share a bed in upcoming episodes after Tanya gets drunk during a romantic dinner with Walford’s hard man Phil. However, the next morning, as she’s suffering a horrible hangover, Phil will reassure her that they didn’t have sex… Read more & comment »

And today, it’s been revealed that Sharon (Letitia Dean) is set to run into Phil Mitchell’s arms on the rebound from Jack (Scott Maslen) which is of course revisiting a plotline that had the nation glued to their tellyboxes back in the nineties when Sharon and Phil (Steve McFadden) had a torrid affair while she was married to Phil’s brother, Grant.
The Sun’s TV Biz reports that the forthcoming plot twist will see the couple setting up home together on the Square.
A show insider said, “Phil and Sharon are two of EastEnders’ biggest characters and they’ve always had feelings for each other… Read more & comment »

Bemused, she wakes him, and the two begin chatting, finding a bond in the fact that neither has a very high opinion of the other. However, they’re interrupted when Sharon (Letitia Dean) returns to inform Tanya that she’s just seen Max (Jake Wood) flat-hunting on the Square. Read more & comment »
Coming up next week on EastEnders, Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) is anxious and stressed ahead of a court hearing to decide if she can get back custody of her daughter Lexi, who has of course been in Phil Mitchell’s care for the last few months…
However, on the day of the hearing, the troubled teen disappears and for a while, it seems she’s not going to make the court in time. But after a few words of advice from Poppy (Rachel Bright) Lola’s determined to show the court she is fit to look after her daughter.
And as we’ll see on Monday, March 4th, when her social worker Trish tells the judge that Lola’s doing really well in terms of putting down roots and working to provide a stable home for Lexi, things are looking good. Read more & comment »

EastEnders veteran, Steve McFadden, has strongly hinted that his latest spell in the award-winning soap is hopefully a long one.
Fans of the hit BBC soap will know that Steve, who plays hard-man Phil Mitchell, has, like the rest of his on-screen family, had several breaks from the show that he originally joined in 1990, but this time it looks like he is staying!

In tomorrow night’s visit to Walford, it’s a big day for Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) as she has to take the stand and declare to the family court that she considers Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) to be capable of taking care of her baby daughter, Lexi…
However, as you’ll see in the clip after the jump, when all eyes are on her waiting for her to say the words that could ensure Phil gets custody, she’s hesitant.
Will she risk losing Lexi forever by saying Phil’s not fit to raise the little girl? Or will she say she does trust him, and therefore at least her baby will be back on the Square… Read more & comment »
As we reported earlier this week, in the New Year, Phil Mitchell is set to propose to Sharon Rickman, and unlike the last time he placed an engagement ring on her finger, this time his offer of marriage is a real one!
However, Phil (Steve McFadden) isn’t the only Walford male hearing the sound of wedding bells in his head as it turns out that Sharon’s boyfriend Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) is also going to propose to her.
And as I mentioned in the title of this post, I wonder if Sharon (Letitia Dean) holds some kind of a record for having the most proposals of marriage ever, because of course she nearly married fiancé John Hewland – who she ditched at the altar before returning to the Square earlier this year – and prior to that, she was married to Dennis Rickman (Nigel Harman).
Before Dennis, Sharon was married to Grant Mitchell (Ross Kemp) and before that even – in 1987 – Sharon was engaged to curate Duncan Boyd, but she later called off the wedding. And in 2002, Sharon was engaged to Tom Banks, but he died while rescuing Little Mo Slater from a house that her violent ex-husband had set alight… Read more & comment »
EastEnders characters Sharon Rickman and Phil Mitchell have a lot of history, given that she was formerly married to Phil’s brother Grant (Ross Kemp) but went on to have an affair with Phil (Steve McFadden).
And they’ve revisited that romance once or twice over the years, and Phil has always been Sharon’s first port of call in a crisis…
And it was of course the crisis of her split from fiancé John earlier this year – after she ditched him at the altar and he then kidnapped her son Dennis – that brought Sharon back to Walford on Phil’s metaphoric white steed when she called him for help.
Subsequently, Sharon (Letitia Dean) has agreed to help Phil in his attempt to get custody of his granddaughter Lexi by pretending that they’re a couple and that they’re engaged… Read more & comment »
It looks like the baby Lexi storyline currently running on EastEnders may have a happy ending after all, if pictures in today’s Sun newspaper are anything to go by!
Fans of the award-winning BBC1 soap will know how teenage mum, Lola (Danielle Harold) is currently fighting to get her baby back after social services took her into care a few weeks ago.

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 »
