EASTENDERS fans were in hysterics at Kathy Beale’s hat – and claim it distracted from Denny’s emotional funeral last night.
Actress Gillian Taylforth’s character was supporting Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) say goodbye to her son who drowned in the Thames boat tragedy.
But viewers pointed out that her black headgear stole the show and they couldn’t keep their eyes off it.
One said: “What on earth is going on with Kathy’s hat?! #EastEnders.”
Another added: “Is there a Twitter account for Kathy’s hat yet? #EastEnders.”
Someone else said: “Love kathy support sharon not keen her hat Face vomiting#eastenders.”
A fan insisted: “I thought Kathy’s hat was just fabulous. #EastEnders.”
A viewer said: “We need to talk about Kathy’s hat.”
Another laughed: “What does Kathy look like in that hat! #EastEnders.”
Someone else claimed: “Kathy is rocking that hat! #Eastenders.”
Last night Sharon’s estranged husband Phil Mitchell made a shock comeback to Walford.
The hardman – who is played by actor Steve McFadden in the BBC soap – disappeared after causing the boat crash that claimed his adopted son Dennis Mitchell’s life.
Fans are now convinced Phil and Sharon will reunite – despite her wrongly blaming him for Denny’s death.
Viewers were in tears as a choked up Sharon couldn’t get the words out so asked Ian to read the eulogy for her instead.
He said: “When my beautiful baby came into this world I was still getting used to life without his dad.
“He used to reach for my finger and hold it so tightly that I knew everything was going to be OK. He loved his football and hated losing, he liked to argue and get his own way. No was a word Dennis didn’t understand.
“He could get angry but it never lasted and when he wanted to say sorry he gave the best hugs. He was my everything. I was so proud of the man he was becoming. We were going to go and start a new life together and then someone ripped that away from me.
“He was gone without even a goodbye. Wherever you are, looking at us probably aiming a catapult, know the world is now quieter. Know you were loved.”
