EastEnders reveals Michelle’s shocking underage sex scandal secret
EastEnders has finally revealed Michelle’s secret – and it’s a big one.
In Thursday night’s episode, Sharon was understandably reeling from the revelation that 47-year-old neighbour Denise Fox is pregnant with her husband Phil Mitchell’s baby. She declared she was leaving him to her best friend Michelle Fowler, and suggested they return to Michelle’s home in Florida together with her son Denny.
However, then Michelle managed to pull off a shock big enough to make Sharon forget all about her problems.
Michelle arrived back in Walford on Christmas Day, carrying a huge secret and unwilling to tell anyone why and for how long she would be staying.
In a heart-to-heart with Sharon, Michelle finally broke down and revealed she had had year-long affair with one of her 17-year-old students.
Subsequently, she’s been sacked from her job, left by her husband and her son Mark refuses to stay in the same house as her. Unwilling to see her son out on the street, Michelle fled Florida and wound up in Walford. That’s a pretty bad Christmas!
Notably, the age of consent in Florida is 18, meaning Michelle has broken the law as well as flounced the responsibilities of her position.
Sharon was initially horrified by the news but eventually came around to the news in a stunning two-hander.
The only question that remains now is how Michelle’s going to sort out the mess she’s got herself into. Stay tuned.
