Poor Sharon couldn't bring herself to choose between Phil and her baby boy.

Initially, she told Phil she would do anything to make their relationship work.

But after he vowed to buy the Vic and not let her step foot in it again, will she have a change of heart?

Sharon's not short of a few bob herself so could definitely afford it.

And she made not secret of the fact that she wants the pub after telling Phil "it's my home!"

Judging by Twitter, fans want to see Sharon back in the Vic too.

"Sharon deserves the Vic on her own terms, she has more claim to it than Phil ever has, so she should be the one to buy it. #EastEnders," wrote one.

Given his huge sacrifice, should he get the money to buy the pub?

The Carters

Linda and Mick have put the Vic up for sale to help her beta alcoholism.

However, the couple plan to stay in Walford and don't have anywhere else to live.

They also don't appear too worried about how they'll pay the bills in their new home.

Could this be because they don't really plan to go through with the sale?

Some viewers certainly seem to think so.

"I wonder if the Carters sell? I get the feeling they won’t," one viewer tweeted. "Even if they move, Linda’s going to be tempted to drink, where ever she is. "Knowing she’s in The Vic could be motivating her not to drink! if that makes sense? Since she’s surrounded with alcohol!! #EastEnders."

Will Ruby put an offer in for the Vic? (Credit: BBC)

Ruby Allen

Some EastEnders fans are convinced Ruby will be the owner of the Vic.

"I wonder what will be the cliffhanger before the hiatus," one fan tweeted. "And I wonder if the writers will do a "three months later" when the show returns. My bet is that during this gap, Ruby, not Phil, buys The Vic."

The businesswoman probably has more cash put away than the other bidders combined.
