Phil Mitchell finally found out the truth about Sharon’s baby during last night’s EastEnders.

As we get closer to Christmas, some of the year’s biggest storylines are set to come to a dramatic end over on EastEnders.

And it’s not good news for Sharon Mitchell, after husband Phil (Steve McFadden) finally discovered the baby she is carrying isn’t his during Thursday night's (December 12) trip to Albert Square.

Sharon’s (Letitia Dean) lies started to unravel after she pretended her son Dennis had parents evening earlier this week.

When Dennis (Bleu Landau) then revealed this wasn’t true, Phil asked his wife outright and she lied straight to his face.
