Mel’s death will no doubt be a hard one for Sharon, who was accused of killing her by Lisa Fowler.

Phil went to pick Sharon up to take her home, but when they got in Lisa arrived and wasted no time in accusing Sharon of murdering Mel.

She said: “Is that Mel’s blood on your hands? Mel followed you to the airport to tell Phil, didn’t she? It was the only way for you to shut her up.

“You killed her. Because that baby isn’t yours and that’s why Mel’s dead.”

Sharon flew into a rage and demanded Lisa get out of the house before storming upstairs.

However she didn’t go before telling Phil: “I’m telling the truth Phil, Mel found out and that’s why she’s dead.”
