EastEnders fans are in for a treat next week as things are about to get dramatic for Phil and Jay – and we mean seriously dramatic.
As fans will know, Phil has taken Jay in and has treated him like a son ever since his dad died and now he’s about to drop the mother of all bombs on the poor lad.
Shortly after telling him that he’s giving him the car lot, Metro is reporting that Phil is set to make a huge confession and will tell poor Jay that he’s the one who murdered his dad all those years ago. Woah.
As fans who have stuck with the soap for a while now will know, Jay’s dad was beaten do death by masked goons, which means either Phil put on ski mask and did the dirty work himself or he’s the one who orchestrated the whole ordeal.
The tension between Jay and his father figure then trickles down to his relationship with Ben as he tells him that his dad is a murderer.
Elsewhere, there’s more drama in store at the square as Steven Beale is set to make his big exit in the coming weeks.
Things are set to be explosive for the Beales as EastEnders bosses confirmed that his exit will come in “dramatic scenes” set to air later this summer.
We’ve seen Steven lie about a brain tumour in order to keep girlfriend Lauren around, which means his lies could about to come crashing down.
