Phil made a shock return in the middle of Dennis’ wake to speak to Sharon but she was in no mood for him.

She told him: “I just said goodbye to my son. The boy you killed. It’s your fault that boat went down.

“It’s your fault he’s dead. I don’t want to see you, I don’t want to hear you. I don’t want you near me not tomorrow, not next week and especially not today. “

Grabbing a knife from the buffet Sharon went for Phil, screaming: “Get out. Get out. I will rip your heart out. You killed him. You killed my boy.”

As Kathy and Ian took her home, Phil followed but Kathy warned Phil that if he hurt her he would regret it to which Sharon said: “I’m not the one who needs protection.”

She spat at him: “He’s the one I picture when I close my eyes last thing at night, he was beautiful, you took him, and he gave me a son and you took him too. I was only with you for security, turned out well, didn’t it?”
