He's ready to 'fess up on the boat crash

In tonight’s EastEnders (Monday, April 6) Phil awaits his fate. But will he go to prison for his part in the boat crash?

Last week, Phil returned to Walford for the funeral of his stepson, Dennis Rickman Jr, who was killed in the accident.

Although Phil’s estranged wife and Dennis’s mum Sharon didn’t want to hear Phil’s apologies, he wasn’t taking no for an answer.

The two soon began reminiscing of fond memories of Dennis and Sharon began to blame herself for Dennis’s death.

Dennis died as a result of drowning.

On the day of the Queen Vic boat party, Ian discovered Dennis was the one who had created the online abuse campaigns about his son Bobby.

Planning to take Dennis to the police when the boat docked, Ian locked Dennis in a room on the lower deck of the boat.

As Dennis left a voicemail for Sharon telling her what Ian had done, Phil and Keanu were fighting on the top of the boat.

When Ian heard about the boat taking on water, he immediately tried to help Dennis.

But when he got the teenager out of the room, a surge of water came down the corridor, causing Dennis to drown.
