Kathy Beale to MURDER Phil Mitchell on EastEnders?
Kathy Beale will attempt to murder ex-husband Phil Mitchell on EastEnders, according to reports online.
A source told Mirror Online: “Kathy feels like she has just got Ben back in her life. She will do everything to keep Ben safe but her son will have other things on his mind.”
After years of excessive boozing, Phil was told earlier this year he only had months to live if he did not receive a liver transplant as soon as possible. His son Ben later offered to donate part of his liver to his father, and is determined to proceed – even though the procedure could be extremely risky.
However, Ben’s mother Kathy is said to be less than excited at the prospect of Ben’s ordeal. In fact, she’s so desperate to stop her son putting himself in danger that she’s willing to take any measures to make sure he does not go through with the operation.
Could these drastic measures go as far as topping her ex-husband Phil?
Meanwhile, Phil actor Steve McFadden recently told the Radio Times he does not know the outcome of his character’s liver disease storyline.
He said: “I do know that actors get concerned about the future and want to know what’s happening six months in advance. So there is the temptation to want certain types of storylines. But I’ve always opened my arms to the nature of soaps – you don’t know the end until you get to the end.
“I’m hoping it’s not the end for Phil. I’m hoping he’s going to stay sober and that all goes well.”
