Sharon Mitchell and Keanu Taylor have every reason to be worried right now.
The secret lovers have been discovered and are currently being blackmailed by a mysterious person, who has incriminating footage of them together…
And we all know what Sharon’s husband Phil would do to Keanu – and probably Sharon, too – if he found out about the affair.
In surprisingly hilarious scenes last night (Tuesday 16 October), the pair discussed who could be sending them the sinister messages.
As the blackmailer continued to threaten to blow their secret apart, Sharon listed the people who might have a vendetta against her.
And the list was quite long!
Standing at the window of her flat, she looked down at Rainie and said: “She got Phil hooked on crack once.”
Seeing the Slaters next, the pair wondered if Kat or Mo could be capable, saying: “Jack told me that’s how she does her psychic stuff – recording people.”
“Butter-wouldn’t-melt” Sonia was also on the list, as Sharon said: “She pushed me in a pool of water once, in front of everyone.”
She continued with Max, adding: “What about Max? Maybe he blames me for him being inside.”
Meanwhile, Shirley “hates Sharon’s guts” and “shot Phil on my wedding day”, while Kathy and Mel were also in the frame.
Finally Sharon conceded “it could be anyone”.
Viewers found the scenes hilarious, while some noticed something especially odd about the ‘clandestine’ conversation – they were having it in front of a window for everyone to see!
One fan joked: “
#Eastenders looks more suspicious that Sharon and keanu are standing by a window together alone…”
Another said: “That scene with Sharon and Keanu standing at the window evaluating the square residents and how awful they all are was iconic

Sharon and Keanu's name and blame session at the window was great writing and direction. I wanted to see more! Fabulous.

Way to go Sharon and Keanu. Best way not to get discovered is to stand together in front of your window in full view of the square discussing each resident who walks past… Mm. https://t.co/7V1CTVTZI0

A third asked: “So Sharon and Keanu are being blackmailed but the two of them will stand in the window n look at the rest of the street. Really?”
Others called the scene “great” and “fabulous”.
Prime suspects for the blackmailer – who weren’t on Sharon’s list – include Louise Mitchell, Dennis Rickman, Hunter Owen, Bernadette Taylor, Keegan Baker, Tiffany Butcher and Hayley Slater.
And, of course, resident Walford menace Phil.
