Soap fans may not be surprised to learn Phil (Steve McFadden) is facing life in prison, given the Albert Square hardman is no stranger to bending the law to meet his needs.

But in recent weeks the police have finally caught up with him, charging him with kidnapping his son Raymond, along with a ‘steaming pile’ of other crimes, according to his lawyer Ritchie.

Despite Phil’s attempts to break off their relationship, Kat (Jessie Wallace) vows she’ll stand by him, even if he has to spend the rest of his life locked up.

Fearing he could put her in harm’s way, Phil fails to tell Kat about his informant deal with the police.

It remains to be seen whether his lies will come back to haunt him, and whether Phil will be found guilty of his charges by the authorities.  

Elsewhere, EastEnders fans have been fearing whether rival channel ITV could ‘kill off’ the iconic soap after it was announced Coronation Street and Emmerdale are set to change their timeslots in March. 

The broadcaster has confirmed both shows will change time slots – putting them in direct competition with EastEnders – as ITV expand their news programme for an hour between 6:30pm and 7:30pm.

Coronation Street will change to three hour-long episodes a week airing at 8pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while Emmerdale will now air at 7:30pm directly following the news.

The announcement left fans reeling, debating whether the BBC soap, which started in 1985, will be axed and comparing the soap to Channel 4’s Brookside, which was axed following a decline in viewership in 2003. 

EastEnders has seen its own shake-up of late, with the news that soap icon Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter, has quit the soap. 

The BBC declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline on whether their schedule may change as a result.

EastEnders airs on Thursday at 7:30pm on BBC One.
