EastEnders spoilers: Shirley Carter promises to destroy Phil Mitchell if Tina is dead
Shirley Carter (Linda Henry) poses a real threat to EastEnders, as she promises to destroy Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) if Tina (Luisa Bradshaw-White) is not found.
Shirley is desperately trying to find Tina after she disappeared during the festive season.
Viewers will know that Tina was in the grip of an attack on Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt), and that she was planning to make a runner. However, Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) killed her – and said she had actually fled.
Linda (Kellie Bright) found out the truth about Ian’s attack from Sharon (Letitia Dean) earlier this week, so she passed on her findings to Mick (Danny Dyer).
Mick spends little time telling Shirley the truth, and is furious when she finds out that Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) was also involved in Ian’s attack.
So Shirley confronts Phil, and warns him that she will destroy him if Tina does not return home.
No doubt Shirley felt betrayed that Phil allowed her sister to become the main suspect in a case she did not commit, all the while knowing who was guilty.
Eastenders airs on Monday February 8 at 8:05pm on BBC One.
