EastEnders confirms return date of Phil Mitchell amid Sharon’s affair

Keanu... One word... Hide!

Phil Mitchell is winging his way back to Walford any day now and EastEnders fans will probably be the only ones happy to see him.

His wife Sharon certainly won't be, as the arrival of her husband will hinder her illicit relationship with lover Keanu.

Phil left Walford for Spain at the end of August - and made it clear Shazza wasn't invited.

After she got over the initial hurt, she soon filled the cold space in her bed with Keanu's warm body.

And while we always knew Phil would be back, the BBC soap have now revealed his return date is sooner than you might think.

In fact, Albert Square's resident hard man is back later this month.

Spoilers have revealed that Phil is back onscreen on Thursday 22 November and Friday 23 November.

We already knew he'd be back in time for Christmas and New Year, as he was spotted suited and booted for the 'wedding' of Ray and Mel.

And do they even want to?

Meanwhile, will Phil have Keanu's guts for garters when he discovers the truth about the affair?
