Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) may need to watch his back in EastEnders, as fiancé Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) has revealed her temptation to follow in his former lovers’ footsteps and shoot him.
The pair had a bust up in a recent episode when Kat learnt that Phil had hidden Alfie Moon’s (Shane Richie) cancer scare from her.
Their tryst ended with Phil sleeping on the sofa after Kat admitted that she wasn’t sure she wanted to marry him after all.
When Phil came to make amends the next day, Kat revealed that she knew he’d kept it from her in fear that it would send her running back into Alfie’s arms.
She assured him that that wouldn’t happen, as she wasn’t like his exes.
She was quick to make a dig at Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), who had bedded Phil’s brother Grant during a trip back from South Africa, before revealing that she was tempted to pull a gun on him like two of his other exes already had.
The first scorned lover to shoot Phil was Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin) after he mistreated her in their relationship, in the iconic ‘Who shot Phil?’ whodunit storyline.
Viewers didn’t know Lisa was responsible until a dramatic episode which saw Phil confront her and reveal that he knew what she had done.
Many years later, Phil was shot once again, this time by ex-partner Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) on his wedding day to Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean).
Shirley shot Phil in the chest and made a run for it, having been upset over his decision to marry Sharon despite having an affair with her.
Kat and Phil failed to put their differences aside after their confrontation, with Phil ultimately cheating on Kat with Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit).
Could Kat be set to discover his betrayal and go through with her plan to shoot him?
