Meanwhile, Steve’s co-stars have been questining whether Phil will be written out of the soap following his alcohol abuse storyline.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Online at the Inside Soap Awards, Harry Reid, who play’s Phil’s son Ben, confessed he thought there was a chance Phil would be killed off.
He teased: “We ask ourselves this question all the time.
“He’s a massive icon, he’s a big character and he is EastEnders. People who don’t watch EastEnders know who Phil is.”
Harry added: “One day he’ll have to go, one day he might wanna go. I personally don’t want him to leave.”
