I felt this should be a separate thread to dictate from the actual discussion.|
* Stacy spends the night in a police cell with: Janine, Pat, Kim, and Kat after they all become embroiled in a huge brawl at R&R. As the women bond behind bars, there's a big twist in store when Stacey admits that she was raped by Archie Mitchell last year.
*EastEnders favorite Bianca Butcher will feature in a major storyline before Patsy Palmer bows out from the role to take maternity leave, executive producer Bryan Kirkwood has revealed.
* EastEnders actress Lindsey Coulson has admitted that she thought the decision to kill off Billie Jackson was "premature".
Billie, played by Devon Anderson, was found dead by his half-sister Bianca in last night's highly-praised edition of the BBC soap.
"Part of me thinks that writing out Devon was a bit premature," she told Inside Soap. "He's very talented, and there were lots of stories they could have told about Billie."
* EastEnders' executive producer Bryan Kirkwood has revealed hints of what the future has in store for the soap's troubled character Phil Mitchell.
Last month, viewers saw Phil's mother Peggy (Barbara Windsor) leave Walford for good after deciding that her son needed to start standing on his own two feet - paving the way for a new direction for the character.
Since Peggy's departure, Phil has been trying to get his life back on track as he recovers from his recent addiction to crack cocaine.
Speaking to Inside Soap, Kirkwood teased: "Unfettered by his meddling mother, now we can see what Phil is really capable of. He'd been sober for ten years before now - the man still has an iron will.
"We'll be truthful to his drug rehabilitation, but I'm keen to see Phil take on the world - and win!"
The show's producer also confirmed that Phil's son Ben will be back on screens by the end of the year. Bosses announced that they had decided to recast the young character back in June.
Kirkwood said: "We've just cast the new Ben, and he'll be back near Christmas. He's a misfit, the runt of the litter. Ben's got a very strained relationship with his dad, so things aren't going to be easy.
"He's had an awful time at the young offenders' institution, and that will give us a really fascinating character to use over the next few years."
