The former Benidorm actor said: “All I can say is that there’s a very famous saying that’s applicable to this: history does repeat itself.”

Sharon and toyboy Keanu accidentally left a voicemail for a lucky mystery person in Friday (October 5) night’s episode as they romped in a car at the Arches.

They were celebrating Sharon helping Keanu get a fake minicab licence, but during their ‘celebrations’ Sharon’s mobile fell to the floor and accidentally called someone, leaving them a very frisky message.

Viewers didn’t know who Sharon had inadvertently called and were just shown the image of a phone ringing out on a table in a cafe.

Back in the 90s Sharon was accidentally caught on tape confessing to her best friend Michelle Fowler that she’d been having a fling with Phil Mitchell.

Sharon was married to his brother Grant at the time and when the recording fell into his hands, he was heartbroken, but hell bent on revenge.

He played the tape to a packed Queen Vic pub where Phil was celebrating his engagement to Kathy Beale.

A furious Grant then beat his brother half to death, before throwing him down the pit in the Arches.

Danny went on to say that despite the naughtiness of his fling with cougar Sharon, his feelings for her are totally genuine.

He added: “He’s madly in love with her.

“The way I’ve played Keanu is that this is genuine love. If it’s not, it all becomes about mind games and strategies – and that’s not really Keanu’s style.

“He’s a genuine guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s really fallen for Sharon and the stronger the chemistry between the characters becomes, the harder it will be for them to resist each other.”

EastEnders released a new Autumn trailer earlier this week which teased the birth of Hayley and Alfie’s baby, Ruby Allen’s hard-hitting sexual consent storyline, Linda’s final betrayal of Mick and Dot and Dr Legg’s return…

It also revealed that Keanu and Sharon’s illicit affair WILL be discovered.

And we ALL know what will happen when Sharon’s husband Phil Mitchell finds out the truth about his wife’s toyboy…

Coffin for Keanu Taylor, please!

In the short preview, dropped on the official EastEnders Twitter feed, Sharon and Keanu are seen getting frisky in the garage – before it becomes apparent they’ve been rumbled.

Later, a frightened Sharon tells Keanu: “If whoever it is tells Phil …”

But Keanu, holding a blackmail letter, replies: “No one is going to tell Phil.”

Hmmm, doesn’t Keanu know how fast bad news travels in Walford?
