‘EastEnders’ Spoiler: Phil Mitchell Sees A Familiar Face When He Finally Seeks Help

‘EastEnders’ viewers will see Phil Mitchell finally seeking help for his alcohol problem in tonight’s (Thursday 17 March) episode, when he attends an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting with Ronnie by his side.


However, when he arrives he gets a blast from the last, in the form his ex Lorna Cartwright.

Actress Janet Dibley has reprised her role, and while it’s not clear how long she’s back in Walford for, her appearance is sure to have an effect on Phil, who isn’t exactly thriving at the moment.

Will Lorna’s appearance derail him again?

Since being diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver over Christmas, Phil has struggled to deal with his drinking, spiralling out of control and wrecking his marriage to Sharon.

With his relationships failing, Phil will turn to another former flame next week, but can she be tempted when he starts reminiscing about the past?

These ‘EastEnders’ scenes air tonight at 7.30pm. A following episode will be shown at 8.30pm.
