However, after the death of her son Dennis, the pair grew closer.

They worked together closely on a plan to murder Ian Beale for his part in Dennis’ death.

EastEnders’ Sharon Watts turns to ex Phil Mitchell for support

With her friendship with Linda Carter broken beyond repair, Sharon turns to Phil for support.

Linda turned her back on Sharon after she tricked her into confessing the truth about Ian Beale’s attack.

Linda’s sister-in-law Tina was, as far as her family is concerned, forced to go on the run to escape prison for the attack.

However viewers know she was murdered by Gray Atkins.

And after Max Branning exposed Sharon publicly, though no-one believed him, Linda was determined to get the truth.

She convinced Sharon to tell her the truth, promising not to judge her.

But once she had the full story she turned on her former best friend and accused her of destroying her family.

The rejection will push Sharon back into Phil’s arms.

He eagerly offers her comfort and they bond over their shared loss.
