Mel has been blackmailing Sharon as revenge for not giving her the money for Hunter’s funeral

EastEnders fans were left thrilled last month when Mel whos played by departing actress Tamzin Outhwaite declared war on the Mitchells.

The grieving businesswoman was left broken after Phil did everything possible to make burying her son Hunter impossible.

But it has sparked her into a furious revenge that will lead to her exit.

After a furious showdown with Sharon who was trying to offer her an olive branch, Mel took it the wrong way.

Thinking Sharon was trying to get the club from her, Mel began issuing threats.

Sharon defended herself and told Mel: “With you as a mother he never stood a chance anywhere.Hunter was always a heartless psychopath.”

Devastated by Sharon’s words Mel burst into tears and warned her: “You’re going to regret that. Get out of my house.”

Later when Lisa returned home Mel had hardened and was preparing for war.

She told her pal: “The Mitchells don’t give a damn. Who would try to deny someone a funeral? How evil can you get?

“You’re right, we need to get Louise away from that poisonous hypocritical… There are ways. Nothing else matters now… the Mitchells, Phil, Sharon…”

Mel has already got Louise and Keanu to move out of the Mitchell house after blackmailing Sharon.

Mel knows that Keanu is the father of Sharons unborn baby and is happy to use the knowledge to get everything she wants.
