Who will die in EastEnders and is Keanu returning to the soap?

Sharon Mitchell vowed to take revenge on husband Phil during last night’s EastEnders after Keanu Taylor went missing.

Over Christmas, Sharon (Letitia Dean) was thrown out of her family home after her affair with Keanu (Danny Walters) was finally exposed.

But after Keanu mysteriously went missing, Sharon has become convinced Phil (Steve McFadden) has something to do with it and vowed to get her revenge.

So, with a dramatic few weeks in store, here’s everything we need to know about the storyline…

But she soon finds out the truth when a drunken Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) drops the bombshell that Keanu isn't actually dead.

When Linda confesses that she and Martin Fowler (James Bye) faked Keanu’s death after being ordered to murder him by Ben (Max Bowden), Sharon is furious at the Mitchells.

Will Sharon be killed?

Heavily pregnant Sharon could also be in danger, with half The Square resenting her for her affair with Keanu.

Step children Ben and Louise, as well as ex Phil are furious at Sharon and she's been forced to move in with friend Ian Beale.

And with the news that one huge character will be killed off on the 35th anniversary of the show, it’s not looking good for the Mitchells.

Is Keanu Taylor returning to EastEnders?

Explosive new pictures have confirmed Keanu will be back for EastEnders' 35th anniversary.

The character was last seen escaping the Mitchells after Martin faked his death, but new photos seen by The Mirror show his unexpected comeback for a final showdown with Ben.

In the snaps, actor Danny can be seen with blood dripping from his face while stood next to Max's character Ben.
