EastEnders' Phil Mitchell star arrives on set on scooter to film big scenes

EastEnders star Steve McFadden was spotted arriving on set on a scooter.

The actor — who portrays Phil Mitchell in the BBC One soap — was dressed for the hottest day of the year, ahead of filming some big scenes.

Last we saw Phil, he was embroiled in something of a feud with Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), as they went head-to-head over purchasing the Queen Vic.

Phil believed he’d got the upper hand after convincing Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) to sell him the beloved boozer, but some friction from Linda (Kellie Bright) resulted in the deal being delayed.

This delay allowed for Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) to swoop in and save the day, as he purchased the pub for Sharon — who wasted little time in revealing to her ex that she’s back where she belongs.

When the soap returns, one would expect there be some animosity between Phil and Sharon, but perhaps his mind will be elsewhere given that Danny Hardcastle (Paul Usher) is set to make a come back.

EastEnders was forced to shut down production amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and episodes were rationed out in an effort to keep it on air for as long as possible.


With the final pre-lockdown episode having aired June 16, the soap went off screens, but viewers have been entertained via Secrets From The Square, which sees Stacey Dooley interview the serial drama’s stars.

Production has since resumed, and EastEnders is expected to return to screens in Autumn.

EastEnders: Secrets From The Square continues Monday August 3 at 8pm on BBC One followed by an Iconic episode on Tuesday August 4 at 7:30pm.
